Hi, my name is Andy and i'm looking for some advice for a NV set up for my .22-250. I was thinking on purchasing a Photon XT 6.5 x 50, but was wondering what be the preferred illumination, IR or Laser torch?

Thanks in advance....Andy

Hi Andy - welcome to the forum. I've not used an XT myself so I'll not offer any advice on that. Somone who has used one will be along soon. :angel:

Either will do the job, but the new generation of lasers such as the Solaris SRX will let you see further.
If you don't want to spend £135 on a Solaris, then a blacksun ruby illuminator such as the BR501 from NightVision Store will be almost as good at ranges up to about 200 yards

Cheers

Many thanks for the reply Bruce. I originally thought about an Add on, but decided Photon was the better option for me.
