I m go to buy a Nighforce Bench rest with NPR1 reticle and 8-32X magnification, becaus e I want it for field target. But this weeken I had the oportunity to prove a Nightforce NXS 12-42X mounted on a Blaser 7,62. It s great. I shoot at 500 yards range and impact a stone at first time. I was very very impressed!
 
I change my mind to a 12-42X magnification ,because it s projected to make a 700yard field of shoot!! Then my scope will be too, for long range competition.
But there isn t available NPR1 in Bench rest model, only NPR2
 
Which one I choose NPR2 or mildot?
 
thanks

Again, the mil dot is a mil-based reticle; the NP-R2 is an MOA-based reticle.

For long range, get whichever of the 2 matches the turrets.  I think all their BR series are MOA turrets, I'd get the MOA reticle.

Mil reticle and MOA turrets works fine too (I have that setup with a USO), but mil/mil is simpler and easier to adjust fire using the reticle with or without dope change.

At firs I went to nightforce 8-32X BR .mildot reticle.
 
But this week I tested a NXS 12-42X NPR1 on a Blazer 7,62cal. Uffff it s gratefull. I was deep impressed. I target a rocket at 500yards at first shoot. And the owner was able to group shoots 500yard in 6cm,only.
 
I change my mind for Nightforce BR 12-42X then
 
thanks
I go for a NPR2 and MOA turrets
