Re: Which Nightforce reticle?
I use Nightforces a lot, you will not regret spending the money once the scope is on your rifle. Nightforce has two excellent hunting reticles, the NPR-2 and a newer one that might be called the NPR-1. The NPR-2 has two minute hashmarks, the newer reticle is apparently similar but the marks are in one minute spacings. I obviously haven't shot the one minute spacing reticle yet - but I expect it would be better than my NPR-2's for finer holdoffs.
Go for it, you will enjoy the scope a whole bunch.
