The SHV™ 3-10×42 riflescope is a perfect choice for those wanting value in a small package. The 3-10x magnification range and 42mm objective provide for a practical solution to a wide range of applications from target shooting to big game and varmint hunting.
The intelligent MOAR™ reticle provides a sharp hold-over reticle without being cluttered.
The SHV product line from Nightforce provides the same quality optics found in the NXS and NX8, but with a more simple exterior, made for shooters who do not need the extreme durability of a tactical military grade scope.
SHV line of riflescopes offers the same performance you've come to expect from Nightforce, but at a much more affordable package. The SHV series is perfect for a wide range of applications that do not require battle hardened exterior and components.
While the SHV line from Nightforce is very affordable, but it should never be described as cheap. The quality of materials, precise tolerances, and the skilled workmanship is still Nightforce. Other brands produce a wide range of scope qualities from Alpha class record-breaking long range shooting to borderline junk from China. Nightforce does not do that. You will never find a bad Nightforce. The SHV scope offers the versatility of other Nightforce lines such as the NXS, but without the overbuilt features, which were originally created to withstand actual combat conditions.
Nightforce SHV scopes use a less complex design and manufacturing process, but it still features the quality components. Experience for yourself the same premium quality and precision only a Nightforce riflescope can offer, but now in a simpler, more economical package.

Combined with a floating center crosshair, this makes for a reticle extremely fast and easy to use in the field. This reticle features center illumination only, and a 30 MOA scale below center.
The elevation and windage marks can be used for ranging objects when the size of the target is known. Bracket the target from top to bottom or side to side within the marks. Distance to target can then be determined using this formula:
Target size in inches ÷ Image size (MOA) x 95.5 = range in yards.
For field expedient ranging inside of 500 yards, a constant of 100 can be used in place of 95.5.
Please note that accurate range finding with the MOAR™ reticle can only be accomplished at the power settings shown above.
