ATACR vs NXS 32X on 25X eye releif?

I have a 32X NXS, but usually shoot it on 24 power. On 32X, I struggle to focus my eyes because of the lower eye relief. I am considering a ATACR if they ever sell it with the finer crosshair.

With the bigger tube, will that help with eye relief? I guess I am really asking, if I use both scopes on 25X, which will be easier for my eyes.

Thanks

I just found some info eye releif:

NXS 22x 3.9"
NXS 32X 3.8"
ATACR 3.56"

I guess my 32X is better for eye strain.

The ATACR can be had with the MOAR-T reticle which has a fine center cross hair, I have yet to shoot one but it should be ideal.

If your set up is correct you should not be straining anything, especially with a Nightforce since the eye box is typically very forgiving, to me it sounds like your needing to adjust the stock or the optics mounting more than anything. I would still roll a ATACR on it just for the better glass and more MOA.

Any other opinions on eye relief?

Owned and shot both. ATACR is easy to get in the box on 25 x and is in a league above the 32X NXS in several ways. My ATACR hardly ever leaves 25X.

No it isn't. ATACR wins! I have a 32X NXS with the MOAR T that I never even got on the rifle because my ATACR came in before it was mounted. So now it sits as a backup or until someone wants to buy it.
