I prefer the NP-R1 for long range work.

+1 for the NPR-1 if it's just used for target.

If it doubles as a hunting gun I personally prefer the NPR-2 or the MOAR. I just find that those two pop better against a dark background.

All good choices!! The top 3 in my book. I do hunt with a NP-R1 and no issues for my type of hunting. That included 19 big game kills with the same rifle this season and one was at 800 plus yards 15 minutes before legal shooting hours closed.

Note the MOAR is a very nice reticle in 1 moa graduations. But the subtension lines are twice as thick as the R1 and R2. This could be good for your type of hunting depending on distance and terrain. But for the long pokes that a 338 LM are capable of I prefer the thinner lines.

Re: night force redical

I'm running the NP-R2, no complaints here. I think overall, the NP-R1 may be a little more user friendly.

Here's a pic of the NP-R2 at ~1100 on one of my steel dongs.

Outlaw, great pic. That is not on 22 X is it? target looks a little small but hard to tell.

Re: night force redical

Broz, I'm pretty sure it was on 22x... not entirely sure. I can tell you this, trying to take a picture like that is a PITA. I haven't quite completely figured it out. The camera & scope don't seem to play nice together.
