    Kahles k624i vs nightforce atacr 5-25x56 enhanced or f1

    Hey guys,

    I have narrowed it down to one of these two for my lightweight 28 nosler, now I know neither is particularly light but I want 50-56 objective milrad and over 20x for the long shots,
    Keen to hear from guys that have or still have either of them and what would you pick and why?

    Cheers Cam,

    i think they are both amazing scopes, you are talking your time on scope selection. I would go nightforce because of duribility and toughness. those Kahles are getting real popular with PRS shooters in the u.s. both will be track mint. Glass will be really close. I love nightforce 100 percent confidence. https://rifletalk.org/2017/04/22/rev...top-scope-duo/ = Kahles review the paralax is cool on them.

    I have a Kahles k624i SKMR and rate it highly.
    The kahles is a little longer then the nightforce f1 by 15mm
    The kahles is lighter in weight than the nightforce f1 by 75grams or so
    The kahles has the same eye relief and the f1
    The kahles has a larger field of view than the f1 at both 6x vs 5x and at 24x vs 25x
    I prefer the reticle in the kahles over the f1
    The kahles is cheaper than the nightforce f1...

    Nightforce f1 has more adjustment than the kahles (34MIL vs 23MIL) as well

    I run a Kahles on my RPR, love it, a very user friendly high quality scope. Many many years ago a good friend of mine told me to always buy Kahles. Unfortunately I have never had the cash until recently, and now have 4 of them, so I am probably biased. Plus Im not a fan of NF. Pretty sure you wont be disappointed in either.
