    My specific question remains:

    Has anyone here done a comparison specifically between the NX8 and the RAZOR HD GEN III 1-10, or, for that matter a specific comparison between the ATACR and the RAZOR III, etc.
    Scope choices are very personal, I've seen guys love one scope and other guys hate it. The other problem is that there is no perfect scope and they keep getting better all the time.

    Try SuperSetCA on YT. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DU3HVeaDkb8

    He's been doing vids on a lot of stuff lately, they're interesting, but the only way to decide is to see them yourself.

    I went to buy a high end scope and decided not to because the less expensive scopes are damn good and light weight these days and I didn't need or want 1 to 8 or 10X. So for the time being I just bought a Trijicon Creedo 1-6X. Very good scope the only downside is that its not strictly daylight bright. Which is OK for me I'm not a three gunner and do pretty well without it.

    I may still buy an NX8 just because its so light and has a bright reticle, but the eyebox could be a bigger problem than the thick reticle. I'll have to take a look at one.

    No dude, it's good, no drama...
    Look at Tijicon's Credo line, I bought a 1x6 23model for light weight. Probably not as durable as a NX8, but has .1 mil adjustment, glass similar to vortex and weighs just 18.9oz and comes in around $800.

    Yeah, I got the Credo 1-6 in BDC second focal plane because I don't see the need for FFP in a 1-6. In a 1-8 or 1-10 the FFP would be more useful IMHO. But with the 1-6, I'm either on 1X or 6X. And I won't use it as a precision scope. About 300-400 absolute max on steel or large targets.

    But everyone has their own reasoning and its just as valid.

    The Creedo 1-6 is light and appears well built. I paired it with a lightweight (5.5 OZ) Nightforce mount. It balances well on the AR I put it on, so far I like it.

    If the BDC had been for 77 I'd gone that route as it would work for 69 gr, 77 gr and 308. They are nice and light with good glass, and have the circle of death. Not Nightforce quality but still a nice option that also works non-illuminated.
