    What's the rest of the set up ? is it a light weight etc

    I ran a NXS 5-22 x 50 on my lw edge & now running a Swavo X5 ( saved even more ) Would even go a 3-18 VX6 if I want'a go lighter still.

    But If your not worried about weight & has to be milrad then than Atacr, S&B or Kahles will do the jobbie.

    It is a relatively lightweight job so atacr would be the heaviest I'd go would like to just throw a nxs on top but pretty sure the atacr will have nicer glass etc but an extra 200 grams really like the look of the new vortex razor amg but I'm sure will be stupid expensive here

    Dont waste your time chasing every last fps, it doesnt matter in the real world, it wont make a difference, all it will do is cause head aches and frustrations. And dont listen to silly old cunts

    Yeah then NXS would be ya best bet, Was guna mount an Actar on mine but the weight & size would of destroyed the balance & weight.

    Pros for a NSX- 22x is plenty, they hold zero & dial great, 30mm tube so plenty of ring options, have good glass, plenty of elevation adjustment & they're a good bit of kit


    Not sold on March as being great value for money ( I think they're way over priced for the glass ) but their features are good.

    Don't think they fit the budget mate unless you've got one for under $3k?
