I think 10x is where I should top it off for now, but having that ability to hit 16x isn't necessarily a bad deal either. So that's something to think on. I'm definitely set on the LR-17 for my bolt gun, but I think I'll give that nightforce a try. If, and more likely when I get one, I'll hit you up and let you know how I like it. To also be honest I was leaning hard on US Optics, but I've also been considering Nightforce options. I knew the SHV was out for my specific demands and applications, but the Nightforce 4-16x44 ATACR FFP looks like a real winner all the way around.
Thanks again, and I appreciate the thought placed into your response.
