Re: Nightforce Scope

Randy, you are correct. The others are set up to range at the top, 22x and 32x, that's something I didn't like about the 42x unit.

Re: Nightforce Scope

After reading what S1 said I got to thinking, at 42X this should give you 1 moa spacing between the vetical bars. Because reducing my 5.5-22 by half down to 11 increases the spacing to 4 moa between bars.

It stands to reason the 42 set twice as high would give you exactly 1/2 the moa it's calibrated for at 21x, which should be 1 moa spacing. This actually would be a good thing for ranging, just larger numbers. Size of target in inches divided by moa is the formula NF gives. Divide both numbers in half just gives you smaller numbers to do the math with, as S1 suggested. You instead use 1/2 the size of target in inches divided by number of "lines", this a much faster way.

Now if you have a 1 moa spacing you could use the formula of "twice" the size of target divided by number of lines (which are now 1 moa apart not 2 moa).

Dividing by the number of lines makes it easy to break up the in between area into a decimal, it's alot easier than breaking up the 2 moa span into a decimal... way easier. Try it. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
