Hello all,

i'm also looking to purchase a 5.5x20.50 NXS NP-R1 and wanted to know what are your experiences with the Nightforce ballistic software? Is it wise to purchase this along with the scope?

Also, what are your experiences in the field hunting with this scope? Once you get it dialed in and practice with it do you find that its relatively easy to utilze the reticle for varying ranges?

Thanks,
jeff

The NF software is Exbal... great, accurate, proven software... It is a great tool and you can run your reticle out on it.

use the R1 reticle in combination with a great range finder and wind meter and it works well for hold overs and hold unders.

check out this link, it will answer a lot of your ?'s.

Basher, let me know when you have used your NF scope, as I too am looking at getting the 5.5-22x 50 or 56. However, not sure which one yet. I also heard that new NP R-1 reticle is great! I plan on mounting it on a 338 RUM.
