What scope manufacturers, besides NightForce, make a scope reticle marked in MOA?  I have been searching and just can't seem to find any!

 

I understand that mil dots are equal to a certain ammount of MOA at a given distance.  I mean a reticle actually marked in whole MOA increments (1, 2, etc...)

 

Thanks!!

Anyone know of any companies that produce more of a "budget" unit that is MOA marked? 

 

Out of the Nightforce and USO the Nightforce is far superior in my opinion in terms of ability to hold over to longer distances.  That said, no $ for either right now.

Have you ever actually used a USO with the MOA reticle??

I have not used any of the U.S. Optics reticles. 

 

I formed my opinion based on their online photos that show the detals of each.  A reticle essentially looks the same through a scope as it does in a depiction, as long as it is to scale.   In my opinion the USO options have too much going on.  The numbers printed on it, as well as 40 or 80 MOA vertical markings is just more than I need to get out to 1000y and not be too busy looking.  That is somehting I have only done a bunch of times in the first place.  I wonder how may of people that say they want 1000y capabilities have ever shot that far.  The one with 40 MOA has it all below the crosshair, and the ones with 80 are just overkill.   If the 40 MOA scale was adjusted so there were 10 above and 30 below, or 20 and 20 that would keep you more "centered" for more shots.  Which is a personal preference of mine, it just feels better to me to be more centered.

 

 

The NF just looks and "feels" neater to me.  Based on the kind of shooting that I do, the fact that more shots are around the center of the crossharis, and the lack of "clutter"(a relative term) the NF NP-R2 is a far superior reticle, in my opinion.  Then again everyone has differnt opinions and that is why they make so many products. 

 

Or for that matter why there are so many college football teams.  Everyone is entitled to who they think is the best team, but only the Gator fans are right.

Do you prefer one of the other reticles?

 

Hopefully we'll improve our record in the state of MS to better than 0-3!!  I think that is the only stat I have recently seen on the Gators that is negative.

You may very well be right about the reticle, but I found that a lot of reticles that look busy on paper to me are perfectly fine in use.

Just an observation.

Oh, and as a side not, I much prefer reticle and knobs in mils to the ones in MOA.  Once again, just a personal preference.

I had a USO SN-3 with a MOA reticle. I found the reticle to be user friendly and not real busy at all, but that's me.

 

I'm more of a clicker any way....

 

EDIT TO ADD:

 

If I were you I'd head over to Sniper's Hide and see what reticle those guys like these days.

Some of the regulars over there are very knowledgeable and can help you.
