Looking for a bit of advice from those 'in the know' and who have used both reticles. I cant seem to make up my mind between the NP-R1 & 2. I have decided to get an 8x32 NightForce but struggle to pick the reticle.
This will go on a 6.5/284 that has been topped with a Leupold 6.5x20 for about a year and recently replaced by an 8x25. The rifle sees mainly paper and steel to 1,200yds but is also frequently used on cull hunts in W TX (most shots in the 500-750yd range).
I dial for elevation and hold for wind. I usually rely on the range finder and not the reticle.
I got a NP-R2, and said what so many say" the NP-R1 is too busy".
Then I bought a NP-R1 and realized that it is not too busy, I like the NP-R1 better. You can not go wrong either way, but I think the NP-R1 is more useful.
