Decisions, decisions, decisions.  Reworking the Savage 10 PC .308 and putting new glass on it.  I got a quote on a Trijicon TR23 5X20X50 with Amber Post like the one I already have on my 700 Varmint 7mm08 for $1,049.00 and a quote on the Nightforce SHV 5X20X56 IHR for $1,169.00.

I've looked through a couple of SHV's in the store but that doesn't really tell me much when the light is fading and a big buck steps out.  Both have reticles that are simple and I won't be using them as LR for any competitive type shooting, just punching paper or steel at my club for fun.  I have cheat sheets I keep in my stock packs for dialing ranges and rarely shoot much over 300-400yds at the club while hunting.

I know the NF has a lot more internal travel for when I step out for fun shooting but the turrets are capped which could be a hinderance if I had to dial in a shot in a hunting situation.  My gut says go with what I know but I like the reticle in the NF since it is thinner and more precise than the post.  Also the NF has the Zeroset whereas the Trijicon  doesn't have anything. (Had an issue where my boy dialed in some elevation last year and missed a wall hanger)

I would think both had similar low light performance.

Where is my money best spent?
