I did a search but nothing on the new Nightforce NX8 1-8 scopes? Should be a great choice for our sport, right? Is there something I have not understood here? Scope seem to be light, compact, BDC, good reticle, 1-8X, FFP, day time visible? What is not to like?
I have a S&B Shortdot 1.1-4 CQB on my rifle and when people have a look at it they typically go: Good scope, but it is not for me. In general they don’t like the first focal plane reticle, and this is what I don’t get. How can you not like a reticle that gets out of the way on low power and comes to you when you need it for long ranges? Since the reticle magnifies according to the target the mil-marks is always correct. Not that this is very important on a 1.1-4 scope, but it certainly doesn’t hurt. On the ShortDot the reticle is not illuminated, instead the red dot is projected on to the glass and completely disappears when turned off, this leafs you with a super fine reticle for precision shots. For some stupid reason they put the red dot in the first focal plane too. But back to my question. Why do so few of you use first focal plane scopes?
