This could make a difference when you really get out there. I usually don't like adjusting my scope and would rather hold over on a mark if I can get a good range reading, that's

Accurate ranging is trivial with a rangefinder.
I too hate setting the elevation <font color="red"> MORE THAN 1 MOA</font>
- but with the <font color="red"> NP-R2 </font>
at most you need to adjust <font color="red"> AT MOST</font>
1 MOA. Note also with ten 2 MOA lines you get 20 MOA holdover. With 1 MOA lines you only get 10 MOA holdover. I have a 90 MOA precant rail, so I can set the 500 yard zero at 10 MOA <font color="red"> HOLD UNDER </font>
- giving me a <font color="red"> FULL 30 MOA ADJUSTMENT with no turret changes </font>
Note NF implies you can easily interpolate 1 MOA between the hashes.
No, not setting the elevation with the 1/4 MOA makes a GINORMOUS
difference once you get out there. Consider at 1000 yards .5 MOA error is 5 inches. (That's why for ultra long range I go for my NF 8-32x56 BR with <font color="red"> NP-R2 </font>
- it has 1/8 MOA adjustments <font color="red"> AND </font>

The <font color="red"> NP-R2 </font>
reticle is a versatile reticle for field tactical, varmint, long range and benchrest applications.
Designed for shooters, <font color="red"> NP-R2 </font>
provides exact hold points for windage and bullet drop as well as multiple zero points.
The Nightforce <font color="red"> NP-R2 </font>
is a performance-proven reticle designed specifically to enhance a shooter’s long range accuracy and ranging capabilities under a variety of field conditions. Each Nightforce <font color="red"> NP-R2 </font>
reticle is calibrated at a specified magnification. This enables the shooter to accurately range a target, utilize multiple zero points and select from numerous hold points to compensate for both windage and bullet drop. In addition, the Nightforce <font color="red"> NP-R2 </font>
reticle is etched on precision multi-coated compound glass. This ensures exact alignment and eliminates breakage. Due to Nightforce’s illumination technology, the glass etched reticle glows red and can be illuminated at different intensities. This technology ensures excellent reticle contrast in low light when illuminated or a well-defined black reticle when not illuminated. In addition, the fine line subtension (area of target covered) makes this reticle ideal for long range applications. Using the latest advancements in etching the shooter is guaranteed consistent spacings and therefore accurate range estimation.
What makes the Nightforce <font color="red"> NP-R2 </font>
reticle truly unique. The vertical line of the NP-R2 reticle is divided into 2 M.O.A. increments (approx. 2 inches at 100 yards). These vertical increments are used for range estimation, multiple zero points and accurate bullet drop compensation. Any size target can be easily ranged using a simple formula: (target size in inches ÷ M.O.A. x 100 = range in yards). Once range is determined select an appropriate hold point based on the bullet drop of your cartridge. The vertical spacings can easily be split into 1 M.O.A. increments further enhancing long range accuracy. The horizontal line is divided into equal 5 M.O.A. increments for windage compensation.
