Re: NP-2DD NF reticle .......ATTN: NIGHTFORCE OWNERS

Used to have 2 scopes with the NP-2DD NF reticles but found it too busy and not as easy to work with as the R2 or R1.
If you rely soley on the knobs for elivation adjustments than the 2DD might work for you but I like to use the R1 and R2 for rangeing as well as quick holdovers.
Remember that for night hunting the scope is calibrated to 15X and will not range the same @ lower powers.

Re: NP-2DD NF reticle .......ATTN: NIGHTFORCE OWNERS

Sorry YOTES2CALL had my reticles mixed up [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img] Had the NP-1RRs.For me the mill reticles(MLR and MP-8) are working out best but then I dont like messing with the knobs after its zeroed and dont shoot much in low light.
Looks like the NP-2DD aught to work great for someone dialing the knobs with the power down for low light shooting!

I love my 8-32 NXS np-2dd. Everyone of my scopes will have that reticle.

Hey Yotes,
I use it for deer hunting and A LOT of target shooting. PM sent
My only advice is to consider whether you like to hold over or dial in your dope. If you like holding off, their are definitely better reticles, such as the new R1.

Cool, as far as dialing in... look at

www.kentonindustries.com

thinking of having Mark build a couple of these to my loads for 2 different rifles.

I know where to hold up to 400 confidently with my 200 yard zero... Just thought this would be the "cats meow" out past that....
