    New Hi-Speed adjustments announced for Nightforce NXS riflescopes
    Nightforce has incorporated new Hi-Speed adjustments into their popular line of NXS
    riflescopes, effectively doubling the elevation and windage range per rotation. This means
    twice the adjustment speed and simplified field reference, leading to faster target acquisition.
    For example, .250 MOA (1/4 MOA) adjustments now provide 20 MOA of adjustment per rotation,
    compared to the previous 10 MOA. Adjustments calibrated in .1 Mil-Radian (1/10 Mil)
    values now provide 10 Mil-Radians per rotation, versus the previous five.
    The new Hi-Speed adjustments will be available on all Nightforce NXS scopes (with
    the exception of Compact models). The patented Nightforce ZeroStop feature, allowing an
    instant tactile return to the shooter’s chosen zero point, is also available on most Nightforce
    scopes.
    In addition, the Nightforce 8-32x56 NXS and 12-42x56 NXS riflescopes are now available
    in two click-value options: one with .250 MOA (1/4 MOA) adjustments (20 MOA per complete
    rotation) and the other with .125 MOA (1/8 MOA) adjustments (10 MOA per complete
    rotation). The latter configuration was used by the USA F-T/R Team to win the long range
    World Championships held in Great Britain in July 2009.
    Adjustment clicks on all Nightforce scopes remain exceptionally robust, accurate,
    repeatable, and virtually impervious to wear, due to the quality of materials and precision
    machining utilized in Nightforce windage and elevation components. For more information
    contact Nightforce Optics, Inc., 336 Hazen Lane, Orofino, ID 83544, tel (208) 476-9814, or
    visit Nightforce Optics.

    Nightforce adds new Velocity Reticles
    In response to demand for additional designs of their Velocity Reticles, Nightforce is
    now offering new reticles engineered for precision shooting to 1000 yards. This will expand the
    popular Velocity Reticles to the company’s higher magnification riflescopes as well as provide
    solutions for the fastest magnums and other flat-shooting cartridges.
    Virtually all modern rifle cartridges will adapt to one of the Nightforce Velocity Reticles,
    with minimal point-of-impact deviation from the reticle’s markings. Once the range of the target
    is known, the shooter merely chooses the corresponding elevation mark and aims dead on.
    The Velocity Reticles are marked in 50-yard elevation increments to 800 yards, and 25-yard
    increments from 800 to 1000 yards. Windage compensation is marked in 5mph increments.
    Unlike other manufacturers, Nightforce does not believe that only one or two ballistic
    reticles will meet the needs of all cartridges. Nightforce has instead created a vast range of
    extremely accurate and dedicated reticles designed to meet specific ballistic requirements for
    virtually all modern rifle cartridges. Velocity Reticles were created for applications where maximum
    speed and accuracy is critical. Nightforce Velocity Reticles are up to twice as fast as traditional
    designs, since there is no need for drop charts, elevation adjustments, complicated calculations
    or guessing at holdover.
    Nightforce has created an online ballistic calculator that allows the shooter to enter their
    specific cartridge details. It then indicates the specific Velocity Reticle that most closely matches
    their ballistics.
    Nightforce Velocity Reticles are clean and uncluttered, providing the ultimate in speed
    and accuracy. All Nightforce riflescopes come standard with illuminated reticles.
    Nightforce is so confident in their Velocity Reticles, that they challenge any shooter to
    visit the Nightforce website, enter their favorite load into the on-line calculator, and prove to
    themselves that there is a Velocity Reticle that will maximize the potential of both the shooter
    and their rifle.

    83544, tel (208) 476-9814, or visit Nightforce Optics.

    Len, are you hearing any backroom chatter about what % of $ increase that NF is suppose to be annoucing?

    It would be nice if these velocity reticules were available in the first focal plane scopes; that would be REALLY GOOD and just what I' looking for!
