integrated PTL (Power Throw Lever) makes power changes fast and easy.
The performance available in such a compact size makes the NX8 2.5-20x50

bolt-action rifle.

Focus range will be crucial for the 2.5x. Any idea what the minimum parallax setting is, Myron? If it's less than 50 yards, I'll have a Bushy LRHSi in the classifieds.

IF given that choice I'd have to go NX8 MIL reticle. I'm not thinking I'd totally trust a Leupold when it comes to lots of dialing.

I wouldn't trust a Leupold to dial anything, ever. This is a hunting forum though, and there's a ton of "shooters" that love that golden ring on their scope, for some stupid reason. Thousands of golden ring lovers around here. I guess you could say that talking about scopes on THF is like taking a golden shower.

The old original NXS F-1 3-15X (used to be the only FFP scope they made) have been seling used for $1700 to $1800. And I have wanted one for years. Now I'm glad I was strong, and didn't buy the few I've seen in the last year. They are about to come down in price.

Some Leupolds have been sent in for repair. Nightforce, well, it's as rare as a blue moon for them to break down.
