Well, theres a couple of things you can do. If it's a 50mm and the price is right, you can sale it to me, or send it to N/F and have the reticle changed out for about $125.00 or $150.00, can't remember which.

Re: NIGHTFORCE OPTICS

Sendero,
Nightforce has a nice assortment of reticles for their scopes. I particularly like the NPR-2 which has two minute hash marks on the reticles or the finer NPR-1 which has one minute hash marks. You might also consider mildots but I believe the R-2's and R-1's are better for hunting.

Good luck with your gear and welcome to Long Range Hunting!

Re: NIGHTFORCE OPTICS

Tell me about the R2 vs. R1

sounds like R1 is busier... how is it at night ?

Re: NIGHTFORCE OPTICS

The R2 and R1 appear the same just smaller hash marks. The R1 also has a 5MOA box on the end of the reticle which is nice. Had the R2 and changed them over to the R1 and glad I did so. Send it directly to NF for the reticle change. I did mine last fall and it was $120. Call them for the current price. Turnaround time was 2 - 3 weeks which seemed pretty reasonable to me and a great value.

Re: NIGHTFORCE OPTICS

what do you use yours for ? Is it to busy at night ? I would imagine it is easier to use for hold overs than dialing in....

thanks
