Nightforce at twice the price of the PST is the answer.
Or you may consider the SS 5-20x50 at $1100ish. Also nice and durable.


Next question?

NF, and Viper PST should not be compared together.

RHutch made a good post, I completely agree with.

Burris XTR II in Mil dot is an excellent option, as well.

Depends on what you want to do with the rifle.

But IF your question is: Which is the higher quality scope, its the NF all day long.

In the Vortex line-up you'll need to be in the Razor series before making a comparison to the NF and even then...I'd give the nod to the NF.

Not a huge fan of the SHV. I would honestly get a Burris before the SHV model of could save some money and go Vortex PST which is an awesome scope. They can't make them fast enough.

I know quit a few guys you had the SHV and hated it. If you can look at all them and compare I would do that. You can also get a NXS line of NF for a little more money or pick up a Razor scope for 2k all day long

Personally, I think the new Razor blows away the SHV.

Well, they're not the same class of scope. Razor is a big, heavy, long range scope, you would have to compare it to a NF ATACR-F1.

The SHV was designed to be much lighter weight than every other NF models, trying to appeal to hunters that have the skill to shoot distance.

I dont believe anything beats a sightron SIII for glass or tracking until you step up CONSIDERABLY in price. Then its still marginal.....

What is wrong the PST line? I never owned a Vortex but I am considering. Some people love them and tout their Customer Service. I'd prefer a scope I never have to send back or one that won't bite the dust on an expensive hunt.
