Nightforce SHV 4-16x56

Anyone have any first-hand knowledge of this scope?

Yes 3 1/2 inches eye relief is a bit short for 300WM but I am looking at this scope for 223 VSSF, not exactly a long range rifle but an accurate one for rabbits and a good trainer for wind at the range.

Thanks Mark

Here is a review that may help you for the SHV scope.

My personal approach would be to buy a Sightron 6-24x50 have a good steel picatinny 20 moa canted rail installed on this and your other rifles, and just switch this between them as needed, assuming your other rifles may have lesser scopes on them.

As to using a Nightforce scope in place of the Sightron, I would go for the NXS 5.5-22x50 and do the same thing if you need a better scope. Both the Sightron and NXS have loads of up adjustments a 4 inch eye relief and their reticle options are really nice. Both scopes track with good precision as well.

Sightron 6-24×50 they work awesome and the price is best value for money for sure. It's a life time purchase - investment.

it is SHV 4-14x56 i don't think they make it in 4-16 power.
i just purchased one of these scopes. i wanted a sightron but they were out of stock of the model i wanted so went with this as pricing was pretty good on them. will let you know what its like when i get it next week if you like.
