reticle opinions....

I am sending a T-16 to Bill Ackerman for blueprinting and I am considering a reticle change as well.

The current reticle is the standard duplex. I have used the fine cross hairs with a V-16 previously and had no complaints.

The rifle is a M-700 25/06 and is currently being fitted with a 27" Lilja. The primary use for the arm is varmints and antelope out to 600 or 700 yards. I use a Leica LRF rangefinder.

I would be interested in your comments regarding different reticle styles for this kind of application.



I'm not sure if you're asking about just Weaver reticles, or reticles in general...

Anyhow, I have been comparing my long range shooting successes out to 600 yards using NightForce's NP-R2 reticle (graduated 2 MOA vertically and 5 MOA horizontally) with standard duplex reticles.

I'm not finished testing yet, but at this point IMHO using a graduated, stationary (no clicks for elevation) reticle like the NP-R2 is a whole lot easier and more accurate than knob twisting...
