    The k624i has been reduced to $2000 but still it's somewhat of an underwhelming optic, as is the K525i IMHO. I've not looked through the 7-35 ATACR. I love most everything about NF but the rotation of the eyepiece for magnification adjustment keeps me away.

    I had a Razor II for a bit and a k525i for about a year, and they felt about the same in many aspects. You're better off getting a Razor III 6-36 or ATACR for sure. Watch the PX, the ATACRs are easier to find under $3k now.

    I recently swapped out my k624i for a used ATACR 7-35 (Tremor 3 ret). In my opinion the ATACR is a great scope with better glass than the Khales. However, I do have a Vortex Razor III (1-10) and that glass compared to the Khales is much brighter. I really like NF glass versus Vortex but I am really liking my 7-35 on my rifle so far.

    @308Nomad , you're getting a good deal. I suspect you will like the Nightforce better because of the brighter view.

    Ditto.

    People love or hate the Kahles 624, but everyone loves the ATACR. Also, the MRAD is a bit of a battle style rifle, likely to get put in the dirt for a barrel change. Nightforce takes a beating.
