Is this to be a hunting or target rifle? Down load the reticule manual at LIBRARY
it will give you the tech info you need. I shoot an optic with a reticule very similar to the NP-R2 and I love it, I prefer to dial elevation and hold of for wind when hunting and it gives you a nice sharp aim point. No matter the reticule chose Nightforce is a solid choice, I'm working to that level but have used a few.
Having a Nightforce on top is like having that rifle with a solid load that just shoots and you can't miss with, when you pull up you know that things are going to happen, confidence
