Nightforce NP-R1

I was wondering if anyone has installed a rail with, say 50MOA, or whatever it would take to use the T in the reticle as a zeroing point. I only ask as it would definitely add huge MOA, but it would also clear the reticle for observation at closer distances?

Dumb thought or what?

Re: Nightforce NP-R1

How far would you like to shoot? I have two 5.5-22 on a270wby and 300Wm. At 100 yds it only takes + or - 20 moa which is one turn on my scopes .The 270wby is shooting 165 vld at 3192 and still doing 1900 at 1000 yds.
Haveing said said all that a 20 degree base would be plenty for even .308 . I have seen 30 degree base for sale, but if you aren't careful you will be looking at the end of your gun barrel.
Just a thought.

Thanks, I'm just installing mine right now and my base is 20MOA. I do like the extended line above the crosshairs, that's all.

Pretty sure you can pick up a 40moa from Nightforce
