    The NightForce brand of optics has been a well-regarded premium brand for quite some time now with their Competition and NSX lines. In recent years they have added new lines that were designed to be use specific such as the ATAR (tactical) and Benchrest lines.

    In 2015 NightForce added another new line specifically aimed towards long-range hunters called the SHV (shooting, hunting, varmint). Their goal for this line of rifle scopes was to provide a more cost-friendly

    If you’ve been a gun nut for any length of time you’ve surely learned that in this game sometimes you just have to man up and spend some money to get the quality that you really want. Whether it’s for a precision rifle, match grade barrel, competition ready pistol or in this case a top of the line scope, the old adage of “you get what you pay for” still applies in certain instances. That’s just what I did earlier this summer when I finally broke down and purchased the scope we are looking at today, a Vortex Viper PST ...

    The Burris FullField E1 looks right at home on the Savage 93R17.

    Let's face it, not all of us can afford the top of the line scopes whose prices often exceed $2,000 these days. Heck, most of us can't afford or simply don't want to spend over $1,000 on a scope. Fortunately if you fall into that latter group of shooters you're in luck because the quality and wide selection of scopes priced in the $500 to $1,000 range has never been better.

    The latest fad in the optics world these past few years has been the move to utilizing a higher magnification zoom lens in rifle scopes. For decades the industry standard was either a 3x (3-9x, 4-12x, etc.) or 4x (2.5-10x, 4-16x, etc.) zoom lens, but in recent years we have seen an ever increasing number of scope lines featuring 5x, 6x, 6.5x and even 8x zoom lenses.

    Unless you've been hiding under a rock the past six to eight years, you're probably aware that a new breed of rifle scopes has emerged that features a 6-power zoom lens.
