Who uses them for stalking ? I recently bought one to replace my Zeiss 6.5 x20 that has sat on my ultra mag and performed flawlessly but my only problem I had was I wanted illuminated ret with the ability to dial if needed so went with nightforce and I wish I hadn't bothered !!
I had 16 hinds in front of me in the early light this morning I could see fine with the binos selected which i was going for up with the scope couldn't see a bloody thing even with the mag turned down.
After a load of fiddling with the parallax i eventually got a hazy image but couldn't see the reticle so on with the illumination the **** image was now a **** red **** image and the red drowned out the hind so i didn't take the shot !!!
15 mis later the image is spot on i could crank up the mag to 32x and still see alright !,for the purpose that i require culling the animals before they slip into the reserve at first light the scope id pretty pants compared to european other scopes iv owned anyone have the same problems because there seems to be always a lot of nightforce for sale lol ?
