    The thickness of the reticale was one of my concerns, especilly in low light conditions, for hunting. If I go nightforce, I will more than likely be going with the MOAR, and the one that lights up. I did notice the MOAR was a tad thicker than the NPr's as you mentioned.

    I'm still very new to over 600 yard shooting and have a lot to learn. My buddy was telling me about the size targets he shoots at 600 to 1000 yards, and how persice his groups are! After that talk, Long range shooting sparked a huge intrest to me.

    So many options.......... I may just wait till after the shot show to see whats avalible then. In the mean time I still have to bed my action, get a single peice picittany base and bed that too.

    There are about 5 or 6 H58 reticled scopes out there.

    Leupold M8 2.5-25
    Schmidt Bender 5-25 PM2 Marksman
    Nightforce makes a H58
    Bushnell has a wonderful one, that the sniper community is nuts about for a good price.
    and of course Horus optics
    Maybe 1 or 2 others, i am not sure.

    The Nightforce is a fantastic scope, I doubt that there is a tougher one out there, IMHO the glass could be better and they are heavy. I personally prefer Leupold for the weight savings and price, the glass in my MK4 scopes is at least as good as Nightforce, not on par with Zeiss or Swarovski but very good none the less. I think Nightforce is money well spent, just more than I personally want to spend.

    The H58 IMHO is a very good one for target rich environments like a 'dog town or for urban sniping situations if you have a good brake and are able to spot your own shots, then you can make very accurate second shot corrections almost instantly. For other applications the H58 is simply too busy for me, I much prefer a standard fine duplex or a true Mil-dot, I dial my corrections though. If you are considering a holdover type reticle Darrell Holland sells a good one http://www.hollandguns.com/ from all the reports.

    No offense BB but I find it hard to believe the $300 scope would be as good optically as a Nightforce.
    I have Nightforce, Zeiss, Vortex, Sightron, and Leupold and in my opinion the Nightforce has the best optics of the bunch.

    None taken, SD.

    If you can find a $300 SS 5-20X50, please let me know immediately.

    Looks like they are still running $1500:

    Interesting about the glass preference. NXS aren't poor optically, and at least Zeiss Conquest level, but it is hard to imagine preferring the image to a Zeiss Diavari or Vortex Razor HD. JMO. The above SWFA is pretty sweet, you should check it out. The non-illuminated version is only $1300.
