Nightforce Optics Named Top Choice of 2018 Precision Rifle Competitors


Nightforce Optics has been named the top choice of 2018 precision rifle competitors in the PrecisionRifleBlog.com series “What The Pros Use.” Results are based upon survey data from the Top 125 shooters of the Precision Rifle Series (PRS), and Top 50 shooters of the National Rifle League (NRL).

“We are thrilled with the results for 2018, and it further validates our ATACR models as an excellent choice for precision rifle competitors,” said Alan Stilwell, North American Sales Manager. “Our recipe is simple: combine great glass with an ergonomic and optimized mechanical feature set, then construct and test our scopes to provide complete confidence. Having complete confidence in your scope lets a shooter perform at their best, especially since warranties don’t matter in the field or at a match.”

Named as a popular choice, the ATACR™ 7-35×56 F1, built on a 34mm tube with brilliantly clear Extra-low Dispersion (ED) glass, provides 29 MRAD/100 MOA of elevation adjustment. Unlike many high-magnification riflescopes, it delivers a wide field of view with superb clarity that enables identification of small targets at extreme ranges and in poor environmental conditions. It is offered with a variety of reticles, including the Nightforce MIL-C™ and Horus TReMoR 3, both popular options for field shooting. DigIllum™ reticle illumination, an integrated Power Throw Lever (PTL) and a ZeroStop™ elevation turret are standard.

New from Nightforce in 2019 for the precision rifle competitor is the MIL-XT reticle, specifically designed for field shooting and competitions. “The MIL-XT reticle uses the MIL-C as a base, then incorporates additional wind-holds and hold-off points that were requested by competitive shooters,” added Stilwell. “The most noticeable addition is the additional holds below center, forming a tree of hold-over and hold-off points. We are excited to add this reticle to our ATACR scopes and have already received tremendously positive feedback on the new reticle.” Availability of the MIL-XT will be early 2019.
