Re: Gen 2 XR (Extended Range) Reticle

Did you omit the Premier URL?

Looks a lot like the NP-R2 reticle in my NightForce



The NP-R2 gives you 10 MOA hold under and 20 MOA hold over. With a 100 MOA NXS and a 55 MOA base, you get 125 MOA adjustment. ( Still not as good as a Leupold Mark 4 - 16 with mill dot, 140 + dots )

Yes it does look a lot like the R2, but I like the windage dots on the lower part of the reticle which the R2 doesn't have.

I really like that reticle. I just wish Leupold would offer scopes with centimeter clicks to go with them.

With a reticle like this, all you would have to do is determine your zero and the mil dots and half mils would do the rest, no need to turn the dials.

Hey Rick, from another Rick - I just wish Leupold would offer that reticle so I wouldn't have to pay $240 extra to have it installed. Getting a good reticle from the factory for little or no additional cost seems more useful than cm clicks. Y do you want cm clicks? ( Can't you buy European Leupold scopes, I see them on eBay on occasion ) They just had a killer deal on a 6.5-20x50mm listed as European. I posted here asking what European meant and someone posted a reply back saying cm clicks in lieu of inch.
