I think a 1-8 would be perfect for a 16" barrel 308, but I also live in Wisconsin, where due to hills and trees, anything longer then 500yds is quite a ways for me. If I lived out west, it might be different.

    Around here it’s probably 200yd max in most areas. Although my desire is target ID, not long range steel.

    90% of why I’m looking at the NX8 is form factor and weight.

    I’ll get more time on it when my mount gets here.

    I'm also part of the program; however, the NX8 1-8 with capped elevation was restricted to only active mil/leo. Has that changed to be open to veterans now or is it still restricted? Having a non capped elevation turret was the only thing keeping me from buying the NX8 and getting a Razor 1-6 instead.

    I assume there has been a change because I was authorized to order one.

    I didn’t say that; capped version is available through their mil/LE program.

    Has anyone yet had a chance to compare/contrast the Nightforce NX8 1-8 to the Vortex Razor HD Gen III 1-10? Thanks.

    Entirely different class of optic. ATACR 1x8 would be a more relevant comparison to the Vortex 1x10 IMO.

    True that they are different classes; however, if I was going to spend ATACR money I'd just get another Razor 1-10. I am interested in picking up an NX8 due to its lightweight, short profile, lower cost, and being ffp. I don't expect it to be a direct competitor to the Razor 1-10, but it would be nice to see the comparison.

    That's what I'd be interested in seeing, for the same reasons.
