Go against the kool aid and get thermal

Your scope is easily good enough to shoot at distance.

Says the guy that has never been through the class.

Its not Koolaid it is getting the right tool for the job. A Zeiss or Swaro will not hang on my range. You need a Mil/ Mil or MOA/ MOA scope.

You don't know what you're talking about. You're out of you depth.

Tell you what. Come to the range and shoot me for $5 a shot. You hit and I miss I pay $5. I hit and you miss you pay me $5. We'll see if it's Koolaide.

For the Zeiss you currently have, I would say try it. BUT..... The Zeiss models I have shot that did not have a parallax knob on it, would not hold groups out at longer ranges. It doesn't look like you have a parallax adjustment on this scope. Yes, it has 1/4 moa turrets, which is needed for dialing, but you might be off on the parallax. If the Nightforce scope option is on the table, I will ALWAYS pick a NF over anything else. I own 4 of them, and it's all I shoot for my precision rifles. They are a very good scope.

Think a f1 3.5x15x50 would be good?

I think the hd5 has parallax.. Can't image a 25 power scope not having it. Pretty sure that's their mid level LR scope.

You should be fine unless you have to have FFP

I just looked it up. It doesn't have the parallax adjustment. It says it's parallax free from 50 to infinity. I'd have to shoot it to test it out. But I'd gamble a pretty penny that once you get out past 400 yards groups would open up.

Still havn't nutted up and done it either.

Maybe I'm right and it's not Koolaide?






Daniel, yes NF will be as clear as Zeiss.
