    From the nightforce site:

    Here is a detailed doc about the reticles :http://www.nightforceoptics.com/RETICLES_OVERVIEW/RETICLES_DETAIL/reticles_detail.html

    TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS:

    Favored by two classes of shooter, the NP-2DD is the reticle most preferred for predator hunting in low light conditions. When measured at 22x, tapered horizontal bars reaching 4 M.O.A. from the center and a floating .1875 M.O.A. center dot draw the hunter’s eye to center for quick target acquisition with minimal illumination flare around the center aimpoint. This reticle is also highly functional for benchrest shooters when combined with Nightforce Precision Benchrest models.

    A secondary .125 M.O.A. diameter dot is located 4 M.O.A. below center at 22x. This dot is a 500-600 yard holdover point for most flat shooting cartridges. This simple and effective reticle performs in long-range situations while maintaining quick target acquisition capability for short distances.

    1,000 yard benchrest competitors prefer the NP-2DD reticle when selecting the 8-32x56 and 12-42x56 models in the Precision Benchrest series for its optimum dot subtension. The unobstructed field-of-view allows the shooter to observe the wind flags to detect a change of condition.

    Should be a small paper back book called reticle information in your NF box. If you don't have one I bet if you call they will get you one they are nice!
