Thinking about ordering one. Anybody have one? Thoughts? Best place to order from? Opinions? Alternative considerations?

TIA

I run 4 SHV’s and love them all.  Make sure you get the exposed elevation turret.   Some of the older ones have covered elevation turrets and it is a pita…..   I have both illuminated and non illuminated and could care less about illumination.  I have the MOAR RETICLE AND LOVE IT.     

Buy with confidence, they are great scopes for the price.   I also have a NSX and it is nice but way more money.   

Sportsman’s has them in stock and most nightforce scopes are fixed price meaning you typically don’t find better deals by shopping around.   Well in less you know someone…lol.

I have a few SHV’s and they are all great repeatable scopes. Buy from camera land NY and get free shipping and no tax.

Are they still made in Orofino, Idaho?  Seems like a good reason to go for a drive.

Correct me if I'm wrong but don't the SHV only have a 10 moa turret on them?

I think karl is right 10 moa per revolution. Id personally spend the few hundo extra and go nxs, or if budget is tight, id rather have a ziess v4 than a shv.  :twocents:

The SHV has more elevation adjustment than most people will ever use.   Especially if you have a 20moa rail.  For the price…..they are awesome scopes.  Ford Chevy dodge….same with scopes.  Lots of brand names make good scopes.  It’s all about how much you want to spend.   I started with the SHV to get into the dialing game and have no regrets.  As money allowed I have now progressed to the NSX and NX8 line.   I can’t bring myself to go away from nightforce just because the proven reliability and repeatability.

I think people aren't getting what I'm saying. Not ten moa of come up, 10 moa per revolution of the turret.

Yes I understand….just don’t see it as a negative.

not necessarily a negative but being able to dial your effective range while staying within a full rev is better. Couldn't see a valid argument against that theory.

They are 10 moa a revolution. If you set your zero it doesn’t matter if you go 100 revolutions you’ll always be able to go back to your zero. Might be nice to have more moa per revolution but I don’t shoot over 600 very often and that’s about 10moa so it doesn’t really bother me.
