Halo.... Put some brakes!!!
In the test peace 4-16X50 PMII they had some 0.01 mrad side movement of the reticle while adjusting the windage.... so it is about 10 cm from 1000 meters...
In 3-12X50 it was even worse... 0.03 mrad... 30 cm in 1000m ... no more headshots from the 1K...

They only had couple of samples per model... but this test really wrecks the world in this community...

At this point I could say that some of the high end scopes had pritty serious flaws in them...
1 mrad change of elevation while adjusting the windage...!!! That is 1m from 1000m!!!! (IMG:http://www.snipersparadise.com/sniperchat/style_emoticons/default/crying.gif)
And the worst in this is that these models are in active use...
Of cource there was only few scopes per model, but it really makes wonder....

It sounds to me like a classic case of the reticle cross-hairs not being precisely sqared and leveled unto the rifles bore...or???.....a "shooter/canting" issue...as "Typically" those are the only two conditions that would yeild an elevation delta during windage manuvers or visa-versa.

In the test they used a Hensoldt test collimator a high quality test optic to determin the flaws inside the optic...
This will cause a riot but that 1mrad flaw was in Mark4 4.5-14X50 LR/T M1
Most likely it was in one end of the range... When you have the adjustment near the end the inner tube might touch the outer one causing this...
The europeans did not have any significant flaws...
In nightforce the horisontal movement was some 0.2 mrad while adjusting the elevation... Only 20 cm from 1K....

How IOR scope have perform in the test ? I am going to buy a scope, and have to choose between Nightforce and IOR. Could you help me...

At this point I have to say that in the test there was only few scopes/model/maker... so one should use some critisism while making conclutions out from it...
BUT....

IOR:
4-14X50
small impuritys in lenses and some traces of clue inside the tube.
The magnification was not correct for the ranging: the correct reading came with +10X magnification....
Minor problem if you know it but gives you errors in ranging if not known...
In elevation the reticle moved 0.1mrad horisontaly...
With windage the error was 0.2 mrad vertically..
In reticle there was 0.1vertical and 0.2mrad horisontal bending... (Might affect the ranging)

6-24X50 the quality was a bit better but the correct reading for the reticle was with 11X instead of 10X...
with windage there was 0.1 mrad vertical movement while adjusting the windage...
0.1 mrad vertical bending in the reticle...

In nightforce NXS 5.5-22X56 Mildot there was some 0.2 mil shift in vindage while adjusting the elevation...
The MLR model did not have any flaws in the adjustment.

In lenses of the nightforces there where some microscopic "bubbles" but the differences with the premium ones: Zeiss,Hensoldt,S&B:s ingluding Horus/Bender and Nightforce where said to be merely marginal...

What comes to the article in the states... That I can not say, due to the fact that I do not know where and when it will be published...
I have heard only rumours that they will be published, and that it will be an annual issue... So it propably will be out in the end of 2005....

Please pardon my ignorance, but what is the MLR?

next question: is this just a different reticle, or is there some structural difference in the NXS MLR scope? Is the difference between the .2 mil shift, and no shift between the two scopes attributable to the MLR in and of itself, or was one scope just a little looser than the other due to QC issues?

Thanks,
Doug

Doug,

I'm not sure about the structural differences, but the MLR, stand for Mil line reticle. It's like the IOR MP-8. In stead of having mildots, it has stadia lines, and like the IOR MP-8 it also has the 1/2 mil line, making it faster to range.

I have one of the new NF, with the MLR reticle. 5.5x22x50, it's not as clear as my IOR's but it had the power range I was looking for and the MOA adjustment I needed.

My IOR 16x's are great with 100 MOA of adjustment but with my eye's getting very old, I needed more power at 1000 yds and beyond. IOR has a 6x24x50, but it only has 58 MOA, I was afraid I would not have enough adjustment, with a 308. Plus the 35 mm tube seem so big. LOL, I guess it will be like the 30 mm when they first came out. Everyone thought they were huge, until the started useing them.

so on the IOR's you tested a RFP not a FFP model???
