    I would get the R1 or R2 and build your load around it... Excellent for hold under and hold overs....

    Aloha Gentlemen,

    First of all I would like to properly introduce myself. My name is Dave and I live in Hawaii on the Island of Oahu. Been here on this forum for awhile mostly reading and learning and thought its about time I start being a more active participant /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif.

    Now back on topic, Has anyone tried the MLR Reticle from Nightforce?? Pros and Cons (Im thinking for big game usage)??

    Thanks again &amp; Aloha to All!!!

    Went to the Nightforce Web Site to see an R1 recticle
    all I see is an R2 if I am looking at it right.

    Wildcat338-

    MLR is a mil reticle

    R1 and R2 are MOA reticles, in my opinion easier to use and faster to use.

    If you get MLR have the Mil turrets put on also !!
