Yes, there are several here with experience, is there a specific question?
Nightforce makes a quality optic, but I would not consider a 5.5-22X to be good for close-range hunting (depending on how you define close-range.)
It is a very durable, not light-weight scope. If it will be mounted on a 10-pound gun, it's fine; if you plan to mount it on a stalker, I'd reconsider. It is large, it is heavy, and 56mm is a large bell.
If you would, please define what long-range and short range shots will be (25 yards to 600 yards?)
I highly recommend Nightforce for tactical or competition guns, but seldom for hunting. Give a little more detail and that might change in this case.
