Unless your target is smaller than a square 1.25"x1.25" and you're shooting at 1000 yards it would not be good for you.

If you could hit a 5" diameter plate at 2000 yards, the reticle of the MOAR would still not be a hindrance. Not for me anyway! It would only cover a square of 2.5"x2.5".

Bottom line, I don't think the marksman that would be slowed down by the MOAR reticle has been born... Then again I could be wrong!

Happy Thanks Giving To All!
Unless something has changed NF specs show the MOAR at .14 not .125. Still I get your point.

If I was shooting prairie dogs or rock chucks I might look for the thinnest one I could but anything bigger and I agree, either would be killer!

Re: Nightforce MOAR reticle

U're right it's 0.140"

I have no idea where I got the 1/8" from!

The analogy is still good.

Re: Nightforce MOAR reticle

I have shot both reticle weights and think it comes down to personal preference with little if any practical effect on accuracy even at the extended ranges. I personally prefer the heavier reticle since I find it faster, and more conducive to focusing on the crosshair and not the animal or target in my sight picture at extended ranges.
