Re: Which Nightforce Reticle? NP-R1 or Mil-Dot

Some words of advice from someone who has been down the same road you are planning on traveling.

To my eyes the Nightforce is the superior optics.
The tracking on many Leupolds leaves a lot to be desired.
The Nightforce model you are talking about cannot be fitted with the NP-R2 reticle. I tried to have it done to mine and they would not do it.
Buy a 8-32 BR model with the NP-R2 or watch the classifieds for something smaller.
I bought my brand new 3.5-15 with Np-1 for less than 750.00 so shop around.

Re: Which Nightforce Reticle? NP-R1 or Mil-Dot

Comparing the Leupy and NF Mil-Dot reticles, I prefer the NF. The hollow dots are easier for me to use. I have Leupy and NF scopes, and both are outstanding scopes. I prefer my NF for the NP1-RR reticle, but that is a heck of a deal on the Leupy MK-IV. The Varminter price is good, but not as good in comparison IMO. Remember, it is easier to dial in a lower than max power on the Leupy, but the NF ain't gonna' make it past 15X on the day you want to see a little more. Tough decision to make ... Mike
