Currently I only Have 1 Nightforce, a 3.5-15x50 w/ Mil-Dot reticle. I am starting to look at some of the other reticles for when I outfit my OBR and have started looking at some of the other reticles, what's the group favorite?

Re: Nightforce Owners, Favorite Reticle?

I have all MLRs now, but would go with the MLR2 with my next Nightforce. The only reason being that it gets tough to distinguish the small MLR hashmarks in low light conditions; the MLR2 reticle is a lot easier to pick up.

Re: Nightforce Owners, Favorite Reticle?

If you like MOA/MOA like me then you would probably like the NP-R1 or NP-R2. I have one NP-R1 and it's great. Also have one in NP-2DD and it's not bad but it isn't really designed to range or use hold overs with but makes a nice varmint scope.

Looks like it can be if you get an F1 (FFP) and not a NXS (SFP)

Redirt you answered my question, thanks. Im a fan of sfp and i was under the impression that the mlr2 only came in F1.

MLR. Never run the MLR2, would like to. But I don't even mind the Mil dot. Still have much to learn yet.

Re: Nightforce Owners, Favorite Reticle?

Get the MLR. The others are all too fine and you loose the crosshairs against a dark or black target

I have an NP-R2, but what I wouldn't give for a FFP 5.5-22 mil/H58...I'll keep my fingers crossed for shot show

Re: Nightforce Owners, Favorite Reticle?

I have 2 NF and I run MOA/MOA so my choice is the MPR1. Wish MF would put hash marks of 1MOA on the windage.

Re: Nightforce Owners, Favorite Reticle?

This one's going back in for a Velocity reticle shortly. It has the R-1, but as a coyote hunter i like tree reticles, in most any configuration really--

NP-R2 for me. Use it for hunting and ranging, but more for hunting.

Re: Nightforce Owners, Favorite Reticle?

Nightforce has a new reticle at SHOT called the MOAR. I think you folks who prefer the NP-R1 will like it.

Re: Nightforce Owners, Favorite Reticle?

I tried the MLR and MLR2 and really liked them . . . but what do I know, I'm still stuck in the stone age because all of my gear is still mildot.

Re: Nightforce Owners, Favorite Reticle?

Ihave an NPR 2 that his good except I would like a thicker line. Does the MLR have a heavier line and can you get it in MOA?
