Nightforce Question

Good Morning...Great morning actually! My wonderful wife surprised me this morning with a new NXS 5.5-22X56 for my Sendero SFII in 300 Ultra. It came with a mildot reticle and I have read on here to go with the NPR1 or NPR2. Is it worth trading it or will the mildot do the trick? I plan on using the rifle for big game out to as far as I become capable. Thanks in advance for the input and have a great day.

If it were me I would get the reticule changed to a NPR1 and be sure it has a zero stop. The MD will work and you can live without the zero stop but both sure make life easier.

You DO NOT have to trade it, I believe NF will change the reticle for a reasonable price, probably much less the you would get ripped off by trying to "Trade".
Give them a call and get a quote, and ask about the zero stops.

Nothing wrong with a Mill reticule IMHO as long as tthe turrets adjust in .1 Mill (1 Centimeter). Nighforce also offer Mill turrets I believe. Or you can change the reticule to a MOA reticule, life is simpler when the reticule and the turrets match

I prefer the NPR2, but that's just me. Nightforce will change out the reticle if you cant swap it out from your dealer. I do believe there is a fee plus shipping.
