NXS and reticles

Guys I really appreciate all the feedback. I'm still torn because I can't seem to find the Blaser tactical in stock any where to put my hands on it.

threethreeeight ,
could you take some pictures of your set up and post them for me. Maybe some close ups as well. Because for the life of me I've felt and held some really nice Balsers before but never the tactical. The only picture that I've ever seen is on there webpage and it doesn't show any close ups.

Finally to my next question I have two NXS 5.5x22x56 with the NP-2DD reticles in them and they are great for being simply to see and use. But what I was wondering is what reticle does every one else use and how do they like them. With the 338 LM I'm planning on shooting long range!
Will another reticle be helpful?
Please post thoughts and experiences with the different reticles.

338 Lm

Here is a HS Precision in 338LM that is for sale in California. The rifle is not mine nor do I have any personal information on it but you might be interested it has low round count and a Nightforce scope.

I use 225g SST.Lapua Brass and 101g of ADI powder @ 3000fps and have taken Himalayan bull Tahr out too 1,695Metres.Witnessed by 4 hunters.
The Sako TRG looked a little bit plain (seeing as I was spending so much money)Go the Blasers !!!
Which type of ADI powder did you use?
