    ok guys , I would like to hear some input from those that have purchased scopes for a custom rifle.
    this is the two I am looking at .
    Nightforce SHV 5-25x56
    Leupold VX-5HD 3-15x56

    I have a number of Leupold VX-3 scopes that I like , what are your thoughts?
    the rifle is a model 7 260 rem.
    it will be used for hunting and some target shooting.
    thanks,

    No experience with ur 2 options.
    I run a Swarovski 2.5 x 10 x 56 and love it.
    My only advice... buy the absolute best you can afford. Do not go cheap on optics.

    I would look at a Swarovski or Zeiss in the same price range and compare them all to see which I liked best.

    The Nightforce SHV is WAAAYYY better than the Leupold in every aspect. No comparison in my opinion
