Hey everyone, first post here, but been browsing off and on for a while. I got started in F-class last year, and absolutely love it. I have a good rifle right now, but have been thinking of upgrading to an open class rifle.
 
Need some opinions from the community regarding best scope between these two for F-Class Open. Would be placed on a yet to be built .260 Remington based on a  Remington 700 action.
 
I am debating between:
Nightforce BR 8-32x56 (NPR2)
Nightforce NXS 8-32x56 (NPR2)
 
The cost of the BR series is better than the NXS. I won't be crawling through the mud, or desert with this scope, so the extra cost and ruggedness of the NXS is maybe a little overkill.
 
I am also thinking just a little bit about the 12-42 power in the same version.
 
Thoughts...
Thanks,

It really depends on the features that are most important to you. BR has a limited reticle selection, parallax adjustment is at the objective NXS is on the side, BR 1/8MOA, adjustment great for range use, NXS 1/8 or 1/4MOA, BR has 50MOA of vertical adjustment, NXS 65MOA, exit pupil is better on NXS more so on low to mid-range, .9 inches more eye relief on NXS. On & on so again what is important to you?

Just wondering why the exit pupil is better on the NXS since they are both the same magnification range and objective size.

I would use the Nightforce BR 8-32x56 with the NPR2 reticle since it has 1/8 adjustments. Also I have that exact scope on a 50cal and I have no issues with it.
