    I hear from a few people that Nightforce are bringing out an FT ( not sure if its HFT ) scope. is this right? How much are they ? where do you get them?? Are they any good?? Not sure i want it for HFT but might chuck it on another gun for something . I have one on my centerfire rifle with an NP1-RR ret which is cool, its good for Fox shooting not ideal for HFT of course.

    O....i see, i figured it would not be cheap did not think it would be anything like that, maybe around the £6-800 mark. Not over a grand:eek: . I was just looking. Cheers bloke for the answer though. Shant look any more for sure. Its a shame as i do like the Nightforce range. There are a few out there that look the business but there not cheap, i figured that this was going to be lots cheaper....shame that.

    I was very interested untill I saw the price :eek::eek: they are cracking scopes but more than twice as good as the 6500, I'll wait a bit I think.

    I was tempted to have the NP-R2 ret but went for the mildot in the end, as it keeps all the practice i have been doing relevant. the gun is now just about as good as it gets, its down to me now!! the only problem with having a good setup is there cant be any excuses for not doing well!
    I have built a couple of other good bsa's recently for others who are also doing Kelmarsh, bsa will be well represented this year. :)
    We will all have to have a day somewhere before hand.

    NIGHTFORCE RETS

    Cheers Simon.

    There are 2 NP-R2 rets, it depends on what magnification the scope is, there is only one available for each scope, i think 10x and below gets the 2 moa increments and the higher mag ones get the 1 moa increments.

    Where are you based Rog, where would be a good place for us both to get to, i am in Derby, given a choice i like going to Furnace mill.

    Cheers Simon.

    I am in Essex ( innit :D) I will have a look at where there is a club in the middle and we can meet up and work out our World domination!!! Also i really would love to see that Nightforce, it really does look the biz. I always said that if you could re PX the NP-1RR with the little bits at the bottom of the ret , it would be a proper little HFT scope, well big HFT scope but still handy with the bracketing lines for sure!
