Shooting experts,

      Before I go ahead and buy a Zeiss or Swarovski.  What's the story on Nightforce scopes.  I can't seem to find much information about them (a search of this site only came back with ONE hit).  I have heard that they are EXTREMELY accurate all the way out to 1000yds, and can be customized to the ballistic characteristics of a particular round/load.  If that is true i think it's REALLY KEWL.  The one i would consider is the 3.5-15X50.  Nightforce's are marketed for "Target / Tactical" applications, but could i use the aforementioned for hunting????? (and what's the difference anyway???)   In short, since u guys know VOLUMES more about these things than i may EVER know, could you once again EDUCATE/ADVISE me???

 

Thanx again 4 everyone's help

 

P.S i know thats ALOT of questions but HEY, u guys are the ones i have found that KNOW THE ANSWERS.

The few NF scopes I have been around, have been very good. Reliable, accurate tracking, solid adjustments,etc.

 

Tactical/BR/Varmint, they are "about" as good as they get.

I would rate a few others higher, but great scope none the less.

Night force refuses to sell us, so unfortunately we just don't have much experience with their products.  Over all I hear good things about them.
