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.
"I, however, view ethics as an individual decision. My ethics are mine - and I won't explain or justify them to anyone else. I seek nobody's approval, just that of my own conscience. "
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.
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.
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.
