Recently put a NF NX8 2.5-20x50 on a CA Ridgeline 6.5 PRC.  Haven’t had it all that long but I think it’s going to workout ok.  The NX8’s are a few ounces lighter than the NXS but the there’s no denying they’re bullet proof.

Thanks to all for the responses, looks like a NF might be the ticket. Now, who to order from?

There is another post on here about NF scopes and a dealer that pays your tax and free shipping.  Sounds like a great vendor too.

Lots of great scopes at $1000 (originally posters budget) here's a few off the top of my head.
Burris XTR II, Athlons Ares ETR, Leupold VX-5HD, Vortex Razor HD LHT, Nightforce SHV (non illuminated model to stay under a grand).

Can normally find a zeiss conquest v4 for under a grand.  I put one on my 270wsm and another on a $200 Thompson center compass in 6.5 creedmoor.

Put a VX3 on the wifes Seekins Havak Element in 6.5 PRC to keep it light. Great little scope.
What do you think of the Havak? I am thinking about picking up a pro hunter in 6.5.

Buy from Doug at Camera land NY, free shipping, no tax and most times if you call in hell give you a better deal than advertised.

Its awesome.  I'm considering selling my Christensen Arms Ridgeline 270 wsm for another Havak Element in 300 prc. My wifes 6.5prc is barely over 7 lbs with ammo in it.
