What Reticle Should I use?
Well as must of you know, I am having a new rifle built. I am going to buy a Nightforce NXS 8x32x56mm scope. My problem is, I am having a hard time trying to decide between two reticles.
The two reticles I am looking at are the;
NP-2DD (Double Dot)
The scope will be mounted on my new 300 Varminter, and I will be using the 125grn BT bullet for varminting. I will be shooting out to 800 yards, however, most of the shooting will be done from 400 to 600 yards. Do to my bullet choice, I think I am going to need a scope that allows me to correct for windage without using the windage knob.
I really like the NP-2DD reticle, but I think the MLR will work better. However, as I metioned, most of the shooting will be done from 400 to 600 yards, and I will be pushing the 125grn BT at 4000+fps. I am thinking the MLR reticle might not be necessary because the bullet will shoot so flat at the ranges I mentioned. I will be shooting the California ground squirrel. They are very small.
I would like to here your opinions about what reticle you think would be best.
