Starting to look for what glass Iím going put on my 30 Nosler that should (hopefully... cough, cough... TriggerTime?) be finished up this week.

This is going to be a dedicated hunting rig for Elk (2019) and plains game (2020) ó with shots on game from 100 yds to 600 yds. Wanting compact MIL/MIL scope with good FFP reticle for low (3x) magnification to mid range (18x)

Any new scopes coming out?

Iíve been looking at
NF atacr 4-16
Leupold mark 6 3-18
Sig tango6 3-18

Would love some input

30 Nosler
Tikka Action
Proof sendero light at 26Ē

For scope Iím wanting a balance of accurate tracking, good glass, lighter weight, usable across wide range of magnification (low and high).

I really like the TANGO4 construction, controls, and glass (just messed with the 4-16x44 a few days ago). I assume that TANGO6 would be similar/better. Dunno anything about the Leupold and NF scopes.

Best of luck in your search, I hope you find something that fits perfectly. Hope to see pics of your new rifle soon, sounds like it looks really good, if that makes sense smile

NF ATACR 4-16X is my vote.

When you come out for load development look through my 5-25X version, and feel the turrets. Plus, of course, it's tough as boot leather.

You may ask the Tract guys if they are coming out with some long range reticles. The glass and weight in the current toric are very nice. The gay gray color is not that great unless your rifle is. I was told they might have something coming or they were working on it.

Don't forget the DSC show is in a few weeks. A great time to look and hear what's coming.

NF seems to be the go-to for everything you listed except weight, it's 30 oz.

I'm in same boat as you. I'm going lightweight, so looking at Swarovski Z6 or Leupold HD6.

I think I'm going to wait till after SHOT to see what's NEW on the horizon. I wont need it till this summer.

Trigger Time is an artist and artists need their rest. You cant hurry perfection banana2

For the price the Athlon Cronus BTR 4.5-29x56 - APLR FFP IR is tough to beat

I would add the new leupold mark 5 to the list.

I am in a similar boat. I am going to make a creed gasser as a primary gun for hunting and range.

Originally I was thinking the mark 6 but most reports have them being lower optically. Then I was thinking atacr 4-16 and was worried about 16 being enough magnification for the few times I am at a extended range. So I was thinking Amg. But I donít know.


As of right now I am looking heavily at the 4-16 atacr with new mil c reticle. The majority of my shoots will be inside 600ish and I think a 4-16 fits in nicely there. It may struggle on a few shots but not a lot for me. Also nightforce is known for good glass. I just want to get one in my hands and feel it.

In the end itís a balancing act. Which set of features feels right to you.

you don't "high" magnification for long range.. you need good glass and solid adjustments.
a great 3-12 will let you hit clay pidgeons at 1k
