  5. I think I saw somewhere a price of $600, or at least that's the rumor.

    I'd rather just pick up one of their constant power scopes. The extra cost for that low of variable power doesn't make sense to me. It is nice that it's FFP though.

    What are the advantages of FFP? Are there any other scopes that feature that?

    It means that your mil-dots will be accurate at any magnification. On non-FFP scopes there is one degree of magnification that the mils will be calibrated at. If you don't range using mil's or use them for a proper holdover it really won't make a difference for you.

    looks like a nice piece of glass.

    I need a nice bolt gun :wtc:
     
  14. A quality second focal plane scope will too. It's just when you get a lower quality scope where the reticle isn't centered perfectly that you get zero shifts.

    Interesting. Kinda an odd power range for a FFP though. At that price point, I can pick up a 3.5x10 Leupy with M1 knobs, which is currently my go to glass for most purposes.

    I assume you plan on shooting the shit out of it, so do tell us what you think.

    Would my Trijicon Accupoint 3-9x be FFP?

    No.

    If the reticle "grows" (or shrinks) when you manipulate the zoom, it is. Most scopes aren't, and you would notice if it was. It's pretty trippy when you first see one.
     
  18. Slightly off topic, but still relevant... I was playing with my NXS a few nights ago and I had an epiphany. I suddenly realized that it all made sense the minimum and maximum magnification numbers they have. Since ranging with the mil-dot reticle is done at 11x the minimum of 5.5x and the maximum of 22x are exactly one-half and double the ranging number of 11x. That makes it real easy to calculate your range at the minimum and maximum powers since you just do the math normally and then either halve or double your number.

    I thought milling was typically done at 10x?
     
  20. The NXS is at 11x. I have no idea what's "standard."
