Currently a 5x22x56 NF with a NP R2. I would like that reticle in the ATACR.

Hey Broz, those 215s you got me hooked on need only 67 moa at 1871 yards at 19 above and 5000 feet altitude. At 1197 yards I use 1.75 less moa then an 208 amax at the same speed.

Jeff & Scott,
I just want to say that having 2 individuals with opposite points of view debating an issue in an honest and professional way is what makes forums such an asset in the education of the particular debate. I for one have learned a great deal from both of you from optics to archery gear. I want to thank both of you for your contribution to the rest of us. I've taken part in some of your FFP vs. SFP debates and have enjoyed learning. You'll never agree on that subject but the debate allows those of us trying to make up our own minds to make an educated decision while spend our hard earned money. Don't let a difference of opinion get in the way of the reason were all here in the first place.

In other words go have a beer together, fight kiss and make up and let's get back to talkin about LRH!

Signed,
Dr. Phil

The RP-R2 is the same thickness as the NP-R1 = .062 at 3000 yards the reticle would be covering 1.94" if my math is right..

The MOAR has a thickness of .140 So at 3000 yards .... 3000 x 1.047" = 3141 .... 1 moa is 31.41" @ 3000 yards. Multiply that x your .140 so 31.41" x .140 = 4.397"

Over twice as much across the board at any distance.

.

Glad you like the 215's, I sure do.

Jeff

Any word from Night Force when these scopes will hit the market. The timing for my new build might just work out like gangbusters

No word for sure yet when I asked NF. But one distributer said 4 weeks. I think that was just a guess.

I did get the info that the ATACR should be ready before the BEAST.
