Re: Nightforce NP-R1 or NP-R2? Help me pick one!
If you are shooting to 500 yards w/ your AR15 I would go with the 2.5x10-32 NXS with the R2. I am sure the MOA hashmarks would coincide with one of your loads for holdover. Plenty of magnification for 500 yards., and only 19 oz. Saving for another scope, then I would look at getting the 5.5x22-50mm NXS with the NP-R1., which I have . At first I thought it was to busy, but don't even notice it now. You don't give up much feild of view at 100 yards w/ the 5.5, but gain on the top end over the 3.5 for longer shots,and they both weigh the same. I would not get the 3.5x15, just jump up to the 5.5x22-50mm.
