Recommendations on Nightforce reticle

I am considering buying a Nightforce NXS 3.5-15x50 F1 for my long range hunting rifle. My primary application is big game hunting, though I plan to spend a lot of time on the range in between hunting seasons. I am inclined to go for a mil-radian based reticle. Looking at the various types of reticles that Nightforce has on offer, I wondered if any one on here could tell me what they prefer and why? I 'think' I'm inclined towards the MLR2, but could easily be swayed to one of the others.

Can you tell me a bit about why you picked the NPR2 and what you like about it?

I wanted to get away from the Mil Dot reticle, and that is all they had at the time. If i get another scope it will be mil/mil. I find ranging with the hash marks to be more accurate for me over ranging with Mil Dots. I've got the 2.5/10x32 mostly used for p dogs and coyotes.

Re: Recommendations on Nightforce reticle

Does anyone know if the LV.5 is based on MOA or MIL? I am unfamiliar with this style.

Re: Recommendations on Nightforce reticle

I don't know if its been discussed on any threads, but I'm looking forward to seeing how folks respond to the new Velocity hunter reticles being advertised on Nightforces site. I just got a Colorado moose application refund and am thinking it needs spent on something hunting related. I currently have a S&B scope and wouldn't mind moving over to something like the 5.5-22x NXS. If anyone has any insider info on these reticles, I'd like to hear to it...
