    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.

    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!

    Tell me about the R2 vs. R1

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

    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.

    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
