Twenty years. A lot has changed. A lot hasn’t.
An investment in our future. And yours.
In 2011, Nightforce embarked on a $1 million
expansion of our headquarters in Orofino,
Idaho. Scheduled for completion in early
2012, it will mean faster delivery times and
more R&D capabilities which will result in
a number of innovative new products, and
even better customer service.
Back in 1992, Australian hunter and shooter Dr. Ray Dennis
had a problem.
You see, hunting at night in Australia is not only legal, but wildly
popular. Several years earlier, Ray had founded Lightforce
Australia Pty. Ltd., for the purpose of manufacturing the finest
spotlights on the planet. Ray’s lights lit up the night for hunting
vehicles and vastly improved a hunter’s ability to find and spot
targets in the darkness.
A good reason to watch TV.
Trouble was, there was no riflescope on the market of sufficient
quality to take advantage of Ray’s superb lights. So he set out to
build his own.
Nightforce partners with many of the top sportsmen
and women in the hunting and shooting industry,
and you’ll see us more and more on television as
they put Nightforce products through their paces in
real-world environments. Tune in!
The principles he followed then have remained unchanged over
two decades—to gather the finest materials, utilize the most
advanced technology and talent, cut no corners whatsoever,
and build what is simply the most rugged, most precise, most
uncompromising riflescope money can buy.
The new Nightforce MOAR™
reticle is a major advancement in
precision shooting. A floating center
crosshair two MOA wide and two
MOA tall provides a precise aiming
point—especially on smaller targets
at longer ranges. One-MOA elevation
and windage spacings provide for
more accurate rangefinding and
hold-offs compared to ordinary
reticles with coarser markings.
The Nightforce MOAR™ has thicker
line subtensions than our traditional
reticles, marked with 10, 20 and 30
MOA elevation indicators (10 and 20
MOA windage indicators), making
it extremely fast and easy to view
under field conditions.
The MOAR™ design is more
intuitive, easier to see in low light
and more visible against dark
backgrounds and in shadows than
other MOA reticles. Shooters will
also find the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock posts
to be an excellent asset for greater
speed and target acquisition.
The detail provided by the MOAR™
makes it ideal for field tactical
applications, long-range hunting and
varmint shooting. It is an evolution
from our best-selling NP-R1 reticle,
and has established new levels of
precision and ease of use for the
long-range shooter.

The MOAR™ reticle will
be offered in Nightforce
3.5-15x, 5.5-22x and 8-32x
NXS models in early- to
mid-2012.
Judging by the growth of the company he founded, he succeeded
beyond his wildest dreams.
Today, Nightforce riflescopes are used by professional and
competition shooters, avid hunters and our armed forces under
incredibly demanding conditions in every corner of the globe.
The pros at FOXPRO
As good as our scopes might be, we also recognize that the
satisfaction of you, our customer, is what ultimately matters
most. You will find that philosophy paramount in our service, our
support, and the way we do business.
Jeff Mock, President of
Predator Masters
MOAR™ reticles in 3.5-15x NXS
models have a 30 MOA scale below
center, as shown here. MOAR™
reticles in Nightforce 5.5-22x and
8-32x NXS models have a 20 MOA
scale below centerline.
No doubt, many things will change in the next 20 years.
Those things won’t.

Glass-etched illuminated
reticles are standard with every
Nightforce scope.
You cannot buy a higher quality riflescope.
That’s a strong claim, without a doubt.
Sand, dust, mud, heat and cold are a few of the environmental challenges
every Nightforce riflescope faces in its development. Every aspect is
thoroughly tested, proven, and tested again before we build a final
product. Anything you can inflict upon a scope, you can be certain we’ve
already done it first.
But, it’s a claim we can prove. And our customers do prove it…every
day, under some of the harshest, most unforgiving conditions on earth.
We didn’t start building scopes and expect people to find uses for them.
Instead, we looked at real-world needs…needs that were not being met
by other optics manufacturers. Created from the ground up, Nightforce
designed the ultimate precision instrument for the intended application.
Hi-Speed elevation and windage
adjustments are standard on all
Nightforce NXS riflescopes
(except 2.5-10 x 32 NXS models).
You can tell the difference the moment you pick one up. If you
could look inside a Nightforce scope, the differences would
be even more obvious.
Fortunately, looking through one will tell you just about
everything you need to know.
All air-to-glass surfaces
receive our proprietary
broadband multi-coating;
applied to tolerances of 1/4
wave deposition or .000005
inches, exceeding the toughest
Mil-Spec abrasion test. You will
see the difference in lowlight situations.
Every lens in a Nightforce scope is
perfectly matched and aligned by
hand with all other lens elements. This
technique, called optical indexing,
yields the highest possible optical
performance. Because it takes time
and considerable expertise, many
manufacturers don't bother. We've
done it this way since the beginning.
A scope’s objective lens
determines resolution, light
transmission and exit pupil size. To
maximize these attributes, every
Nightforce objective lens assembly
utilizes a multi-element design like
those found in the highest quality
telescopes. Our lens system
focuses light rays more precisely
for exceptional image clarity and
color accuracy.
Nightforce tubes are machined
from solid bar stock 6061-T6
aircraft-grade aluminum alloy,
not extruded or formed like those
found on lesser scopes. They
are two to three times thicker than
other riflescopes. This means less
overall stress, greater thermal
stability, a consistent zero and a
virtually impervious shield for the
precision optics within.
The spring that maintains
pressure on our elevation and
windage adjustments spends
two weeks in a polishing
tumbler before going into a
Nightforce riflescope, to assure
there are no rough spots or
burrs to interfere with perfectly
smooth operation. It is made of
pure titanium, the only known
metal in the world that can be
repeatedly compressed and
held in place, even for years,
without developing fatigue or
“memory.” This guarantees zero
loss of integrity, zero loss of
repeatability. It is many times
more expensive than comparable
springs found in most scopes.
But, we are not concerned with
a few dollars. We are concerned
with building the best riflescope.
The optical elements within an
NXS riflescope are hand-bedded
with our own proprietary Mil-Spec
bonding agent, then cured at 160o
F for 24 hours. Lenses are further
secured with o-rings and machined
metal lock rings, both fore and aft.
This zero-tolerance lens securing
method prevents any movement of
The terms “rugged” and
“precision optics” are usually
not compatible. Any optical
instrument built to highly
exacting tolerances and absolute
alignment is by its very nature a
delicate device.
Not so with Nightforce.
The design of our scopes is
unique within the industry,
allowing us to combine optics
of extraordinary precision with
construction that will withstand
repeated recoil from the largest
calibers, extreme shock and
severe temperature changes.
We machine the screw that
controls elevation adjustments
to an unbelievable 110 threads
per inch. It is so precise that it
must be mated to its receiver by
hand. Why go to so much trouble?
Because we consider backlash
clearance of more than 1/30
the thickness of a human hair
unacceptable.
the optical elements in any
direction, under any circumstance.
This permanent bonding assures
a lifetime of uncompromising
performance and reliability,
confirmed with front and side impact
testing on every scope we build.
A hand-signed Quality
Assurance tag means your
Nightforce has been thoroughly
tested and approved.
Adjustments are made with
hardened silicon bronze to ensure
a lifetime of wear resistance and
reliable performance. This is not
the easiest way to build a scope.
It is, however, the best way to
build a riflescope…providing a
lifetime of repeatable accuracy.
Lenses are painstakingly bedded
with our own proprietary Mil-Spec
formulation. Unlike methods
used by most other scope
manufacturers, with our bedding
process there is no glass-to-metal
contact that can result in breakage,
stress or misalignment over time.
Our process is 100% permanent,
guaranteeing perfect optical
alignment for as long as you own
your Nightforce riflescope.

Originally developed for use on military small arms, the
3.5-15 x 50 nxs allows for a lower mounting profile.
The practical magnification range and large field of
view make it an invaluable scope for professionals and
serious hunters as well.
A full 110 moa of internal adjustment make both 3.5-15
models extremely versatile in the field and applicable to
a wide range of applications.
After sighting in your rifle, set the
patented Nightforce ZeroStop™ feature,
and you can make all the elevation
adjustments you wish…then return to
absolute zero instantly and positively
just by feel, even in total darkness. No
counting clicks, no visual reference
necessary. Offered on 1-4, 2.5-10, 3.5-15,
5.5-22 and 8-32 NXS scopes. Available in
.250 moa and .1 Mil-Radian adjustments.
The top choice for law enforcement snipers. A large
objective lens increases resolution and exit pupil size for
rapid target acquisition and optimal light performance in
twilight conditions…an especially useful configuration for
tactical teams that may not have dedicated night vision.
This superior optical design also benefits hunters and
sport shooters who want to maximize their success in
low-light environments. A large field of view, 110 moa of
adjustment and a practical magnification range make this
an ideal riflescope for both snipers and sportsmen.
Our riflescopes are subjected
to abuse during product
development that would quickly
destroy lesser optics. Preproduction riflescopes are tested
in a pressure tank simulating
100 feet of water for 24 hours,
ensuring absolute waterproof
integrity. We test thermal stability
by freezing them to -80o F, then
heating them to 200o F within
a one-hour period. Function is
checked at both temperature
extremes. Recoil and impact
testing for positive and negative
forces is conducted at 1,250 Gs.

depend on their scope.
Available with
3.5-15 x 56 NXS
The ZeroStop™ feature is
easily set by adjusting
the clutch found under
the elevation cap.
Before it is shipped to a customer,
every riflescope is completely
inspected and checked at 70 to
130 different points, depending on
the model. We perform a battery
of tests, including forward impact,
side impact, tracking accuracy
and resolution integrity. These are
but a few of the steps we take to
ensure absolute quality before any
riflescope leaves our facility.
The hole you see in the well-used
Nightforce 3.5-15 x 50 NXS riflescope at
right was made by an enemy 7.62x39
round fired at a U.S. soldier. The bullet
completely penetrated the erector
tube—the heart of the scope's optical
system. We’re happy to report that the
soldier was not injured, and the only
casualty is the riflescope's magnification
ring, frozen on 15x. Its focus, tracking,
and all other functions work just fine. It
holds point of aim like new.
The soldier wrapped the riflescope in
duct tape to keep out sand and dirt, and
used it without a problem for the next
three days, completing his mission.
We receive many stories like this.
Because Nightforce riflescopes are
used in active theatres by most of the
elite special forces worldwide, they are
subjected to—and survive—the most
brutal conditions imaginable.
We won't say they're bulletproof.
There is at least one soldier, however,
who would argue otherwise.
Whatever you think you might do
to your riflescope, chances are
we’ve already done it.

12,500 shots through two .50 BMGs.
I fired another 4000 shots with it
on an AR10. Then, I mounted it on a
14.5/114mm Russian (570 gr. of powder
propelling a 1000 gr. bullet at 3300 fps)
and fired 970 rounds. Most scopes break
within one to ten shots on the Russian…
not the Nightforce. Then I used it for
another 47 rounds through a 25mm
Hotchkiss, 3000 through a Barrett M90,
and 6000 rounds from a Savage M250.

Originally developed for the U.S. military’s extreme long range
shooting and hard target interdiction, both 5.5-22 Nightforce
NXS models provide a broad magnification range, four inches of
eye relief and 100 moa of elevation travel. These characteristics,
combined with the extreme ruggedness and reliability of every
Nightforce riflescope, make them ideal for even the largest calibers.
The slim profile of the 5.5-22 x 50 NXS makes it easily adaptable
to a wide range of mounting systems. Its superb resolution at
high magnification opens an entirely new world of extended range
shooting for the accomplished marksman; Nightforce shooters are
now accurately reaching to 2000 yards and beyond.

Since 1992, Nightforce has been a winner in countless benchrest
competitions. We have taken that knowledge and success and
combined it with the durability and features of our NXS line
to create the ultimate long-range field and target riflescopes.
Evolved from our tactical line, the 8-32 x 56 and 12-42 x 56 offer
fast adjustments for precise, repeatable shot placement. The
extremely high magnification ranges mean there is now virtually
no target outside the capable shooter’s reach.
now the question becomes:
does your rifle measure up to OUR scope?
It might come as a shock to the
shooter who has just invested
a small fortune in a fine rifle,
but the fact is that a Nightforce
riflescope is built to tolerances
vastly more precise than those
found in the best rifles money
can buy.
Why? Because even the
slightest error in a riflescope's
construction will be magnified
dramatically as range and power
settings increase; and evident
in a constantly shifting zero and
frustrating lack of repeatability.
Quite simply, to achieve the
absolute maximum accuracy from
your rifle, your scope must be as
close to perfect as possible.
Less precise riflescopes can—and
will—fail to match the potential
of a well-made firearm. With
Nightforce, whatever your rifle is
capable of, your riflescope will
more than measure up.

Nightforce compact NXS models prove that
a riflescope needn’t be large and bulky to
be highly efficient. Not that building a small
scope offering high performance is easy.
Like a fine watch, tolerances, materials,
and optical design must be as close to
absolute perfection as humanly possible.
Few companies have the skill, the resources,
and the desire to create such a precision
instrument. Our compacts were originally
designed for—and are still in use by—the
U.S. Special Operations community, whose
demands are uncompromising. When you
hunt with a Nightforce compact, you won’t be
making any compromises, either. All you’ll be
giving up is bulk, weight, and inconvenience.

According to one U.S. sniper in Iraq,
Nightforce “holds and retains zero, even
after getting banged around a little.” If
you saw how thoroughly we test every
scope before it leaves our facility, a little
“banging around” is of no concern at all.
Why are there so few riflescopes on the market offering
variable magnification beginning at a true one power? It
is extremely difficult to build a true 1x variable riflescope
while maintaining absolute optical integrity and alignment
throughout the entire magnification range. For the hunter,
having the option of one power—zero magnification—makes
our 1-4 x 24 NXS the only true substitute for open sights on a
dangerous game rifle. For the military/LE professional, it can be
a lifesaver in CQB situations (especially with our FC-2 reticle). A
top choice for three-gun competitive shooting as well.
Nightforce compacts are available with
two types of adjustments:
NXS Compacts are available

1-4 x 24 NXS
If hunting big, dangerous game is your passion, there is no
better scope on the market to keep the odds in your favor. The
true one power of this low-profile scope makes it as quick as
open sights and vastly more precise. With a 100-foot field of
view at 100 yards, target identification and acquisition is instant.
Ideal for hunting dangerous game at close quarters, especially
with large magnum calibers, these same characteristics make
the 1-4 x 24 NXS to excel in CQB environments and tactical
competitions. In all these situations, one fast and
accurate shot makes all the difference.

Nightforce benchrest scope:
12-42 x 56 Precision Benchrest
2009 NRA Long Range Regional
Championship (F-Open)
Competition
Each of our Precision Benchrest models feature 56mm objectives
and multi-coated lenses, providing the superior resolution
necessary to distinguish fine detail at extremely long ranges. An
adjustable objective allows extra-fine focus to adjust parallax
from 25 yards to infinity.
2009 Spirit of America Fullbore National
Championship (F-Open)
Target adjustments are calibrated in true .125 moa (1/8 click)
values and can be re-indexed to zero after sighting in.
In 2008 he won the U.S. F-Class Nationals,
the NC State F-Class Championship, the
NRA Long Range Regional Championships
(F-Class Open Div.), and set a world
record 200-13x at 1000 yards. In 2007,
600- and 1000-yard national records. “My
12x42 Nightforce played a huge part,”
Charles said. “The 1/8 moa adjustment and
high magnification are must on the new
reduced F-Class targets. Nightforce scopes
have flawless tracking, lash-free parallax
adjustment, superior resolution and
unequalled light transmission. Combined
with the unobstructed view of the NP-2DD
reticle, and you have the finest F-Class
riflescope available.”
Both Precision Benchrest riflescopes are equipped with a coil
spring plunger return system to maximize tracking accuracy.
The eyepiece provides fast reticle focusing, and a glass-etched
illuminated reticle provides optimum image/reticle contrast
under virtually any lighting conditions.
You have two choices of magnification ranges. But only one
choice in the ultimate benchrest riflescopes.

2009 NC State F-Class Championship
2009 US F-Class Championship
Another year, another
world record with Nightforce
Every year since 2003, Leo Anderson has added
more and more titles to his collection of 1000-yard
world records. 2011 has been no different, with his
new 1000-yard world records for the 17 lb. class,
six-match Aggregate and ten-match Aggregate.
Leo said, “to shoot the best you have to shoot the
best equipment. That’s why I shoot Nightforce.
Customer service is excellent…Nightforce is a
great company to deal with.”
2006 World Record
Cody Finch produced a new 1000yard world record for group (Light
Gun Class) in 2006, placing 10
shots in 3.835" with his Nightforce
12-42 x 56. “I honestly think it's
the best scope out there,” he said.
“If you want to win at this game,
you'd better use a Nightforce.”

Unimount
the only possible way to
improve a nightforce scope.
Nightforce steel rings
Nightforce one-piece
steel bases
An integral recoil lug machined on the bottom of the base (Rem
700 and HS700) provides a precise fit when bedded to rifle actions,
preventing any movement of the base or recoil stress on screws
holding the base to the receiver.
Our one-piece bases are machined to exact Mil. Std. 1913
specification rail dimensions. This design allows the same scope to
be used on several different rifles, always optimizing eye relief. A 20
Minute of Angle (moa) taper is standard, with a 40 moa taper offered
for Remington 700 bases. Designed for right-or left-hand actions, our
bases will never interfere with loading or extraction.
Designed to fit Mil. Std. 1913
scope bases, we machine a
load-bearing recoil lug on the
grade eight crossbolt. This lug
precisely matches the machined
cross lug of the Nightforce base,
providing perfect alignment and
superior accuracy.
We design and produce
Nightforce 30mm rings inhouse to our own exacting
specifications; we believe they
are the highest quality rings
available on the market.
The Nightforce Unimount is designed to remain on the scope at all times,
allowing quick removal of the scope or interfacing with different firearms. It
is the most accurate Mil. Std. 1913 mount available, incorporating a built-in
20 moa taper to maximize long-range capability. The Unimount is the ultimate
mount for attaching to weapons with an integral Mil. Std. 1913 flat
top-type receiver.
The finest riflescope in
the world is only as good
as its mounts. That’s why
we recommend Nightforce
rings and bases to make
certain you’re getting every
bit of performance from your
Nightforce riflescope.
Our bases are CNC machined
from a single billet of steel.
They are precision machined
to match the receiver
contour, ensuring straight
and true alignment. This
also reduces the amount of
internal adjustment required
when zeroing your rifle. All
Nightforce rings and bases
exceed military design
specifications. They are tough,
reliable, utterly precise, and
are the perfect match for your
Nightforce riflescope.
Precise tolerances ensure that the riflescope is not
subjected to stress, strain or bending as the ring
screws are tightened. CNC machined from 7075-T6, the
Unimount is finished with a matte black coating.
Ultralite rings
Ultralite Unimount
When a tough, reliable mounting system
is required without adding substantial
weight, Nightforce Ultralite rings are the
answer. They feature CNC machined 7075T6 hard anodized black aluminum bodies
and titanium beta series crossbolts and
jaws. This unique construction provides
exceptional strength, normally not found in
lightweight rings. Testing has proven that this
combination is actually
stronger than steel.
Detailed specifications on our
mounts and rings can be found at
www.nightforceoptics.com.
Direct Mount
Only 1/3 the weight
of steel rings.
Nightforce two-piece
tapered steel bases
Also made to Mil. Std. 1913 specifications, our two-piece
bases are machined with a 20 moa taper and finished
with a matte black mil-spec coating. Allows mounting of
scope to retain the maximum amount of internal elevation
adjustment. This will allow you to shoot further and still
maintain a 100 yard or less zero.
Nightforce gunsmith
bases (steel or aluminum alloy)
These Mil. Std. 1913 base blanks allow you to
customize the length, height, radius and hole spacing
to your specific application. Standard taper is 20
Minutes of Angle (20 moa).
16
This Nightforce system combines a high quality CNC machined 7075-T6 hard anodized
aluminum base with an integrated ring design. Built to mount directly to your Remington
700 short or long actions, the 20 moa taper maximizes internal adjustment. The Direct
Mount ensures true alignment and maximum strength for precision shooting. Like all
Nightforce mounts, it incorporates an integral recoil lug which prevents any movement
of the base or stress on the screws attaching the Direct Mount to the receiver. It is the
ultimate in a weight-saving one-piece design.

online accuracy:
The velocity™ reticle calculator.
The unique online Nightforce Velocity™ Reticle
Calculator was created to maximize the precision and
effectiveness of Nightforce Velocity™ reticles. It will
give you step-by-step instructions to establish your
rifle’s individual ballistic profile and match it with the
correct Velocity™ reticle and scope. It will then give
you a recommended sight-in distance to optimize
your trajectory from 100 to 600 or 100 to 1000 yards,
depending upon the Velocity™ reticle you choose.
Fast, foolproof and uncomplicated.
The calculator has an extensive built-in library of factory
loads. Handloaders will find a complete database of the
most popular bullet brands and styles. Just pick your
bullet, enter your muzzle velocity and click.
The ultimate accuracy tool.
The Velocity™ Reticle Calculator instantly shows you
standard deviation from a Velocity™ reticle’s markings
at all ranges in 100-yard increments. We’ll make
recommendations based upon our standard of less
than .50 MOA deviation at any range you choose.
Simply select from the ballistic menu options,
enter your muzzle velocity, and click to see the
best Velocity™ reticle match.
Imagine going on a hunt knowing you’ll never have
to guess at how much to hold over. Imagine having
the confidence to shoot consistently and accurately,
whatever your target, to within one-half MOA, even at
extreme ranges.
Tailored for your rifle and your load.
Some manufacturers tout “one-size-fitsall” ballistic reticle designs that require
you to dial down your magnification (not
a good idea when shooting at longer
ranges), in an attempt to match their
reticle’s configuration to your rifle…hardly
a recipe for speed or precision.
Nightforce Velocity™ reticles, in conjunction with our
online calculator, make it a reality. If you’re confident
of the distance to your target, if you’ve practiced
thoroughly during the off season, and if you’ve done
your homework with us—consistent long-range
accuracy is at your fingertips.
Our Velocity™ reticles are offered in
several configurations based upon the
muzzle velocity and caliber of your rifle.
Virtually every modern rifle cartridge
will mesh perfectly with one of our
Velocity™ series, with minimal pointof-impact deviation.

Our Velocity™ reticles solve the basic
problems that have historically plagued
the hunter when presented with a long
shot. Now, there’s no guessing. No difficult
calculations. No estimating holdover. No
counting elevation adjustments. Once
you’ve determined the range to your
target, simply choose the appropriate
elevation/windage mark and hold dead
on. They’re up to twice as fast as ordinary
ballistic reticles.
nightforce velocity™ reticles:
a new concept in speed and accuracy.
We’ve made long-range shooting a simpler science.
Detailed information and tutorials
on Nightforce products, including
our Velocity™ reticles, can be found
at www.nightforceoptics.com.
Professional, military and competition
shooters have long appreciated the
precision made possible by sophisticated
ballistic reticles, especially at extreme
ranges. But, for the hunter—or for any
shooter for whom time is of the essence—
traditional ballistic reticle designs are often
too complicated, cumbersome, cluttered
and slow for effective use in the field.
Not any more.
We’ve done all the legwork.
You can even enter atmospheric conditions specific
to your area if you wish, or simply select our default
conditions to get started.
The best of both worlds.
Results are instantly matched to your rifle’s ballistic profile.
It will outline recommended scope/reticle combinations,
suggested sight-in distance, and standard deviation in 100yard increments.
On our website you’ll find an online
calculator in which you enter your chosen
load’s details. It instantly tells you which
Velocity™ reticle is appropriate for your
rifle, and provides an optimum sightin distance to maximize your bullet’s
trajectory. Sight in your rifle according
to these recommendations, and you
won’t have to worry about guessing at
holdovers again.

More detailed information on Nightforce reticles can be found at www.nightforceoptics.com.
Nightforce offers a wide range of sophisticated
reticles that maximize the effectiveness of our
riflescopes. While many scope companies treat
reticles as an afterthought, each Nightforce reticle
is designed for ultimate performance within specific
applications. This is the only way to acheive the
highest degree of repeatable, predictable accuracy
possible…making your choice of reticle almost as
important as your choice of riflescope.
Illumination is standard on all Nightforce reticles.

Hail to the hero
“ I have used Nightforce exclusively for all of my F-Class
shooting since 2001. I’ve used them to win a good number
of gold medals in State, Regional, National and World
Championships. Just this year [2011] my 12-42x allowed
me to win the Creedmoor Match in Ireland and the U.S.
Fullbore F-Class Nationals in Raton, NM by a good margin.
I am asked quite often by new shooters, ‘What scope
should I buy?’ My answer is always the same…Nightforce.”

Darrell does it again
2011 was a good year for the
U.S. F-T/R Team. Using the
best equipment available,
including Nightforce NXS
scopes, the Combined Team
won the new Creedmoor
Cup in Ireland. Team
Captain Darrell Buell won
the Irish National Individual
Championships (800, 900,
1000 yards). “My scope
worked flawlessly, as usual,”
Darrell said, “from ranges
as short as 300 yards all the
way out to 1233 yards.”
It takes a licking…
“I built preference points in
Colorado for nearly a dozen
years…I practiced diligently with
my Christensen Custom rifle topped
with my Nightforce Velocity™ 1000
yard reticle. Snow covered a lot
of extremely slippery rocks…I slid
down a steep bank smacking rifle
and scope against several rocks as
I grabbed for anything to save my
life. The pistol grip on my stock was
bashed in and there were several
deep marks on the scope. I knew I
would need to sight my gun back
in. I took shots at 25, 100 and the
recommended 210-yard sight-in
range…I was amazed to see that the
gun was still perfectly sighted in.
Nine days later, I harvested a good
buck at 375 yards with one shot.
The Nightforce mounting system
and scope itself must be about
bulletproof.”
—Michael Deming, President,
Sportsman’s News

The 3.5-15 x 50 F1 NXS is the answer.
The reticle is located in the first focal
plane, which has distinct advantages
in high-stress situations and when the
user might encounter targets from upclose to 1000 yards or more.
A first focal plane reticle remains
in the same visual proportion
to the target across the scope’s
entire magnification range, making
it especially appropriate with
rangefinding reticles. Combined with
Nightforce highly tactile and intuitive
adjustments, it makes for a scope
that is extremely quick, accurate,
responsive and utterly reliable.

they know it now. The LV.5 is perfect for hunting…

Slippery slope, tough scope
December dandy
“While deer hunting in a
mountainous area of New York
State, I slipped on black ice
on the way to my stand in the
dark. That morning I shot a
130-inch eight-point whitetail
and a coyote. While gathering
my equipment I noticed my
riflestock was badly cracked
and my scope and rings scuffed.
Fortunately, my Nightforce scope
was totally unaffected by the
fall…point of aim was the point
of impact. Thanks, Nightforce.”
—Dean O’Hanlon, Chester, NY
“With the help of a Nightforce
5.5-22 x 56 and my best friend
Dave from Longbeard Outfitters,
I was able to bring this guy
down this evening [December,
2011]. Thanks to the guys
at Nightforce for making it
possible. There is no alternative,
PERIOD!”
