Re: Nightforce MOAR Reticle: Your thoughts

The MOAR isn't really a target shooting reticle IMHO. Great for hunting but not so much for paper punching. I have a 5.5-22x56 MOAR on my Sako TRG. I use it for banging steel and hunting. I think a MOAR fine would be pretty sweet for the guys that are just looking to shoot paper. Wouldn't be surprised if we see it in the future.

Re: Nightforce MOAR Reticle: Your thoughts

I love the moar reticle, however, I am now trying to decide between 50 or 56mm! If I go 56mm I have to get new rings to accommodate! Is there that much difference?

Nope... I have both and can't see it. But I would guess at last light there would be a little. Probably another personal choice and whether or not you need to be a little more compact too.

I have sighted on game till the last minutes of legal shooting here. Never had an issue seeing the R1 even at 1500 yards. But when I put the crosshairs on a coyote at 1500 I sure do not want a thicker reticle than the R1. If the MOAR "thin" ever comes about I will probably try one. But it really offers me nothing for my prefered type of hunting or shooting over the R1.

Re: Nightforce MOAR Reticle: Your thoughts

I have looked at the MOAR in the 3.5-15 and the 5.5-22 models and the reticles look totally different in the different models. the reticle is much thicker and larger in the 5.5-22 model. anyone know what the and why the differences are??

I am completely sold on the MOAR. I am going to set it on top a 338 RUM as a long range elk hammer. WAITING for the FFP 5.5-22 model to come out. Don't know how long I have to wait but hopefully it's not too long.

They fit 30moa into the reticle in the 3.5-15 because of the field of view difference. 5.5-22 only has 20moa on the reticle.

I can't see the difference. I prefer the less bulky dimensions, and had a nice set of med mark 4 rings that I was able to use. The bell of the scope is 1/8" above the barrel.
