Nightforce reticules

I am looking at getting a nightforce NXS 8-32x56 or 5.5-22x56 but can't decide on the reticule
I like the look of the MLR but most people seem to go for the NPR 2 which I also like what would be the pro's and con's of these two reticules.
The gun is a 6mmBR varmint, small deer (roe deer) and informal target gun shooting out to about 750yds.
Thanks

Re: Nightforce reticules

It really comes down to personal choice. I like the NP-R2. If you like MOA, then get an MOA reticule and turret. if you like mil then get a mil reticule and turret. Don't mix them.

Good shooting,

-Mark

Re: Nightforce reticules

I have the NP-R1. It has 1 MOA spacing lines on the vertical line, and 2 MAO on the horizontal; whereas the NP-R2 has 2 MOA spacing lines on the vertical, and 5 MAO on the horizontal.

The NP-R1 looks a little "busy" compared to the NP-R2, but it's better for precise long range aiming.

BTW, there is no "u" in reticle.

I like the NP-R1 with the 1MOA marks on the vertical.
