I have both the 32 and the 22 power night force. The 32 only has 65 MOA and the 22 has 100 MOA. Most of the guys I know use the 22 power for this reason. I use my 22 power on my edge built by shawn Carlock and I love it. I feel pretty comfortable shooting this set up to 1,200 yards.
Im building a new 408 cheytac and Im putting my 32 power NXS on it. Im willing to sacrafice the loss in MOA beacuse I just feel a bit more comfortable with more power way way out there.
If you're just starting out and you want to get real good to 1,000 yards, I'd recommend the 22 power night force, you cant go wrong, its an awesome scope~~
