Re: Which Nightforce Reticle?
I have the 5.5x22-50mm w/NP-R1 reticle. At times I find it to "busy" and seem to get lost on the verticle hashmarks. Most of the time I dial up elevation, and don't use it for ranging. Have thought about sending it in to change the reticle to the NP-R2 or NP-1(no hashmarks). I can't comment on how accurate ranging can be done with the NP-R1.There are some on this site that I'm sure do quite well.I plan on practicing more on that when the weather eases up a little. If I were to do it again, I would either get the NP-R2 or the NP-1 reticle.
The NP-R2 still allows you to determine range with the reticle,(maybe not quite as accuratly as the NP-R1) and the hashmarks are open enough not to be confusing. Or just get the NP-1 and dial elevation for everything. Others on here can comment more on the ranging aspect .
