    trident,
    USO has 2 interesting scopes that would fit the purpose. one is their "Dual focal plane" 1-6x and the other is their new 1-8x that has a mil hash reticle in the FFP and a push button daylight bright red dot.

    haven't put my hands on the new one yet, but that's probably what i'm going to order later this year

    Dano, no kidding! lot of cool stuff coming out right now.

    fwiw, an update... this is the optic i mentioned 2 posts back, which was 2 years ago, though the rifle isn't exactly 'recce'

    What appears to be another example of this concept perfected by enhancing it's reach, and ballistics with .308/7.62:

    Green Beret in A-stan circa 2017-2018 using what to my naked eyes is a Noveske N6 16" switchblock complete rifle with a Leupy MK 6 mounted in a MK 6 20 MOA mount. Has a secondary T-1 offset as well. Features a Harris BRM-S mounted via ADM.




    Lots of great footage, including some of a 5.56 Recce, and a MK 20 SSR. These guys clearly get to pick whatever they want it seems.

    I have one of the handful of individual purchase NF 2.5-10x24 hash NP-R2, illuminated, original "spec-war" marked optic. It is excellent glass for the size and weight. Probably the best.
    Appears you exactly right on the optic still 4+ years after you said it. I love how optic tech isn't so frantic that by the time you buy one nice model, it's already being replaced by an updated model. The NF and Leupy optics used by SF units over the last decade and a half bear this out it seems.

    The "Recon Nav-Spec", or the one you have marked "spec war" x24s are truly my bucket list optic.

    Hoping my recent build is DMR accurate.

    I shot a 1.35 and 1.6 moa group today with Mk 316 Mod 0 ammo today. Had major pressure signs with suppressor but not unsuppressed.
    More testing is needed...

    What are the specs on your rifle? Sounds like promising results.

    If using.308 Recce type rifle and wanting to push the round out to say, a thousand yards, would ya be using a 20 moa base/mount with a 2-10, 3-15 flavor optic?

    I never found the need for a 20 MOA riser on a NXS compact 2.5-10x24 or x32 optic when using it for 1K+ shooting with my 16" MWS. Then again, Nightforce has copious elevation adjustment at 100MOA.




    On a unrelated note.....F**K PHOTOBUCKET for ruining the internet, and a number of tech threads I've started over the years. Damn them for that!

    Thank ya for the response. Iíll be running a 3-18 Gen2 Razor on my MWS that I just got and also found a Spuhr 20 moa mount too good to pass up. Better to have and not need, I guess...
