Thread: Optics dilemma

    Optics dilemma

    Having been using a Duralyt for the past 6 months i am now finding that i am struggling a bit with the mag for very long range crows, it is lovely for lamping but just could do with a bit more for longer shots.

    I am in the luck position of being able to indulge in a nice scope and im trying to decide between the Nightforce ATACR and the vortex range from riflecraft.

    I'm guessing there will be limited if any real world experience of the ATACR at ths point but wondered if anyone had any feedback on the vortex scope?

    Thanks for any input!

    Why not a schmidt?? Better glass than the NF

    if you eBay schmidt bender there is a 4-16 PMII that ends in a few hours. I have one on my 7mm and it is absolutely fantastic

    Thanks for the replies guys, i will be buying new as the savings for second hand dont justify the risks in my mind when im spending this much.
    Apparently the ATACR is meant to have much better glass than the NXS series. Have seriously consiedered the PM2 but having read about some warrenty issues i have been put off a little.

    Wouldn't worry about durabilty issues with a PM2.

    I bought a secondhand 4-16x50 +5 years ago and it had a fair amount of use then.

    I have used it non stop since and it has been faultless in all sorts of testing conditions.

    For reliability I doubt there is a better scope! Especially when compared to an American NF!
    I'm telling Captain - from the Wee'est of men.

    thanks for the replies, all appreciated. will definitely consider PMII again. does anyone here have a vortex? the warrenty looks amazing (too good to be true?) and nice features also.

    PM11 are a waste of time! To much money! I've known a few people have them and have problems! NF are very good scopes, but if you don't want to spend NF money but still have a top quality scope then have a look at the weaver superslam euro style!
