I am looking to buy either a Vortex Razor HD 5-20x50 or a Nightforce NXS 5.5-20x56. I'm going to put it on a 7mm rem mag and was wondering if I could get some input before I make such a major purchase. They will cost me the same amount so money isn't an issue on which one is cheaper.

Thanks everyone

In my very limited experience I will comment on what I have seen between the two pieces of glass. I have an ATACR and my friend has the HD. They are both great IMO. The difference we see between the two is the HD seems to have more Pop or a crisper image in the full sun and the ATACR seems to limited the amout of light to some degree. We think it is due to a lense coating. However on a cloudy day, dusk or dawn the NF glass seems to have a more crisp image.

We have compared them at 11 pm at night with a full moon and the NF is far superior.

From my experience having owned both I will tell you that the Razor dominates the NXS series in almost every single aspect. Image quality you can tell an immediate difference with the Razor being clearer brighter and crisper in any lighting situation.

NSX line is not the ATACR. Big difference. The Vortex Razor will have better glass than the NSX line without a doubt.
