Re: NightForce New MOAR Reticle Scope

I'm intrigued by the reticle design & like the idea. I would love to get my hands on one to get a first person look at it. Not too cluttered yet not useless either, i've got two long range rifles sitting here w/o scopes; guess i'd be foolish not to look at the MOAR as well as the NP-R1 & NP-R2 which I already have.

Re: NightForce New MOAR Reticle Scope

Sounds like a good idea, but I would prefer the NP-R1 with it's finer reticle for long range. Even in my 2.5-10 I like the relatively fine reticle of the NP-R2 as I shoot way more ground hogs than elk with it. I am using Hollands ART reticle in a S&B on my LR rifle. This reticle has a very small subtension and easily works for 'hogs out to 1K.

Re: NightForce New MOAR Reticle Scope

I have sighted on elk at 1500 plus just to dryfire. And I have taken shots at coyotes at 1500 (trying to beat my 1200 yard yote) At these distances it does make a difference to me. Not that you can't center up with a thicker reticle, but I sure like seeing all the hair I can.

Re: NightForce New MOAR Reticle Scope

If I understand correctly, the new MOAR is in 2nd FP only, 20 MOA on the NSX 22X and 30 MOA on the NSX 15X scopes?

Yes you are correct! Windage is the same on both models (20moa)!

Re: NightForce New MOAR Reticle Scope

the more I look at this reticle, the more I like it, my focus is just drawn to the floating cross hair

Re: NightForce New MOAR Reticle Scope

I saw one of the new MOAR reticles today at Sportsman's Warehouse. It sure was nice, 1900.00 and some change though.

Does anyone know if NF is changing over the reticles for those that want to switch over to the new MOAR. If so, what is the cost? I have 3 NF scopes and don't need a 4th at this time, but I would like to change one over to the new MOAR.
