Hi Quoddy

From all I've heard the Nightforce in all it's various configurations is the "creame de la creame," the cat's meow, the 10,000 pound gorilla in the room as far as scopes go … but in looking over the link that you provided it says that the parallax is only adjustable down to 45 yards which might be a problem with close shots at various critters. The only other thing is that the scope tube is 34mm which says (I think) that you will need a special mount and rings for attachment. I could be wrong because I have never had a Nightforce scope but I don't think 30 mm rings would fit a 34mm tube without some measure of crushing on the tube and possibly end up messing with the adjustments of the scope.

The March 1-8×24 had a parallax down to 10 yards, but I seldom, if ever, use any of my guns below 50 yards. I originally sighted the Impact in at 75. I have a Nightforce extended cantilever 34mm mount coming with the ATACR. I used a similar type mount with my previous Vortex scope and found it was perfect on the rail.
