    Garrett,

    That is a dandy parts list. IS there a reason you use second focal plane scopes. Obviously the NXS is a great scope, just curious. Are you going to pin the recoil lug to the the action?

    No specific reason, I do like FFP also, if they offered FFP in the NXS I would probably get it. I just don't see a huge advantage to FFP to switch anything up, plus my 2 other long range rifles have Nightforce on them with the MOAR-T and MOAR reticles, so it is nice to keep things the same.

    Yes the recoil lug will be pinned, and so will the rail.
