    My new Nightforce SHV

    I've just put a 3-10 on my A7 7-08 (18" barrel). MOA reticle.

    Only took a few shots to sight it in. I'm well pleased with it. Nice and bright edge to edge.
    Not sure if the reticle is too fine or not for in the bush or with a dark background. Time will tell. I like it though.

    Seems to track well. This pic shows 2 shots, and then 2 clicks down. It was a bit windy so not the best conditions.

    Funny you should say that. After I took that pic I had to turn the front mount around to shorten the eye relief a bit.

    I paid $1,599 ex DED the NZ agent.
    I understand that they can be got from Australia for a lot less.

    Do you have to unscrew a turret cap to be able to dial in the field?

    They are ok bruce but lack numbered windage markings on the reticle, and in the heat of the moment are difficult to put the correct amount of visual windage in for the shot.

    So this is a 10x scope with parallax/image focus adjustment ? Very good for older eyes and unique on the market.
