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.

    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.
