I like the 2.5x10 NF also. I almost got that one over the x15. It's just that a deer looks cool through the x15 at 200 yards. I just wish South Carolina would allow the use of suppressors while hunting. Now that would would be cool.I cant remember who said they were going to get the NF 2.5-10. That is going to be your best choice for this. (My opinion only not fact) I found that you can not have two things from one sight. The 10x will work great for the range, and the OS MRD (Mini Red Dot) is the tits. You have the long range magnification you need and then when it gets close you got the fast Red dot. Also if you want you could even go higher magnification but still keep the OS MRD. Then you can do both for cheap.
One other thing this thread is exactly why I love this forum over the other snob forums. If this was over at the other two it would have been locked by now. This forum is so great they actually let you go off and get all the way into the discussion. I do want to hear every complaint about a product or technique. It seems to save me some time and money down the road. Above all if I didnt like what was being posted all I have to do is not look. Thanks all
