5 inch eye relief may be a bit much. I prefer something in the 3.5 range but that's just me. Well except in a Model 70 Featherweight 7mm Mag! Got split but good on one of them. Last time I ever shot a 7mm mag and it was in 1980. That XR looks like as good a BDC as any or this caliber and I personally have done good by them when a warranty issue arose. As in sent me a brand new one for one I bought used that was more than 10 years old, out of production and had a hard life with me before it went punk. So yeah, I'd consider one if I were in the market or a 3-9 BDC scope. A larger objective would be a better choice for sunrise/sunset conditions.

Go with the Vortex. In my opinion, they make a better quality scope. They also test all their scopes on a .50bmg

All of the hunter forums that I browse do not think very highly of Nikon. They often refer to them as bottom of the barrel. I did have a nikon force on my 454 casull, which I had to ask for my money back because the gun destroyed the scope

I do think that nikon has a great market tho. I think the Nikon prostaff is a great scope for any bolt gun / ar15 platform that does not have a lot of recoil for about 150 yards for the price
