I'm a long time NF fan, they are great but have moved away from them since trying Steiner and using a buddy's IOR Valada (don't recall model). the Steiners mx5i and tx5i are really impressive as is the IOR. Especially the mx5i! I also really like the leupy mark 6 with TMR 3-18, but feel it's overpriced. Been behind and used top tier razors and thought they were competitive in that price point. Also don't discount S&B PM scopes they are very nice, but my eyes can't justify the price tag compared to a used in great condition Steiner tx5i. Heard great things about tangent theta.
Just remember Glass is so subject. you need to go out and get behind em for yourself. For example, one of the very best FFP bangs for your buck is the weaver tactical with emdr reticle. I have two and they are usually on sale at Natchez for $599 but everywhere else 1100-1200. They remind me so much of the NF SHV FFP (imo better) and bushnell lrs/elr glass it's not even funny at half the price, plus built like a sledge hammer.
