Re: NP-R1 or NP-R2???

I can see that these responses aren't gonna help you at all.

I went with the NP-R1 because it has more hash marks.

I'ts looking like personal preference will carry the day......

    If one wants to use the reticle for hold over to enhance speed with a shot on animal where time is of the essence, the NPR-2 is much easier and faster for this. Less confusion with the marks

    Which would be better for tactical shooting matches, the NP-R-1 or the NP-R-2. Would the NP-R-1 be to busy.

    Definately too busy for me. Look at the 2 reticles here and decide for yourself

    R1 4 me.

    +1 for me I prefer the R1 just my opinion

    I prefer the NP-R2, have it on 2 , 2.5x10 and 3.5x15. Like others I find the R1 to be busy.
    On another thread I remember a forum member giving this piece of advice: 500 yards and under go with the R2, over 500 yards go with R1.

    I dissagree with the 500 yard rule. I have never seen a need for the NP R-1 at any distanece. I have never experienced a problem with the NP R-2 at 1000 yards with no turret correction
