Cabelas Ft Worth has Nikon prostaff 7 3-12x42 30mm duplex reticle scopes w/ side fpcus for $199. Cheapest I could find online was $230ish plus shipping, and most places are selling them for the $349 retail price.

I went in looking for a scope, figured is buy a vortex crossfire II. But the deal on the Nikon as too good. It's got capped turrets, which feel great. Much more crisp than the SWFA scope I have.

Did you notice how long on sale? What are your thoughts on this scope? Was it a BDC or other?

The lady at the counter didn't know (she didn't seem too knowledgeable. But I told her it didn't matter, I'd just buy it today. So far it's nice and clear glass. Reviews on the prostaff 7 scopes are good.

It only on the "nikoplex" reticle, which is just a fine duplex. Exactly what I was wanting for this rifle. I don't think the bdc reticle offerings are on sale.

TFF caribou (or anyone else) other than the diameter of the tube, what are the differences between the 7 and the 5? Anyone know?

Curious what you mean about the capped turrets being better than the SWFA you have. SWFA doesn't have capped turrets, correct?

Do you just mean you're not going to use this with a long distance rig?

Sorry, I meant I like the clicks better. They are more tactile and a little less audible. With the SWFA turrets, I have to count audible clicks. With this one, I can feel them better. But yes, they are for different purposes completely.

It will not be for any kind of long range work. I sold my.long range rig today.

Got to shoot the new rifle with this scope today. Bore sighted and in the bull at 30 yards with 3 shots. Then shot a 3shot 1" group at 100 off the hood of my truck. Im very happy with it.
