For me it's the R2, nothin else comes close to the versatility it offers.

I would buy from one of LRH's most prominent members. Jon @ TOZ. His prices are as good or better than anywhere I have seen, and Jon is SOLID as well. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: what nightforce reticle?

Hey guys...always glad to share anything that might be helpful... I can only tell you that "Hunter's Edge" www.opticsandknives.com sells the NXS 5.5-22x56 "R2" for $1,199 plus $15 shipping; I've only had this one dealing with him, but he shipped my scope as soon as he received the funds... it was factory fresh, new in the box... if you know anywhere to do better, by all means let us all know... hope this helps... Larry

Re: what nightforce reticle?

I aggree with Brent. The NP-R2 is the one that I have in both of my 8-32X NF scopes. They are very easy to learn low to use and the don't clutter up the view through the scope.I think that it is a much better system then the Mildot. It is fast and easy to do the math with the NP-R2 when rangeing a target. The NF scopes that I have used for the past 6 years have been used a lot for long range shooting. They are repeatable and have held up to the pounding that they have received a top my 30 Hart Magnum rifle, and a 30-338 Mag 40X. I don't use hold over when shooting long-range. I add the minutes of angle need for the round to be on for the distance I have laser measured. My point is that my scopes realy get a work out spinng clicks, and they have held up to thousands of rounds fired. How much better can it get!
