Hi; what is the difference between the last years model Nikon Tactical 2.5-10x44mm and the current years model?? The part # of the old is 6692 and the part # of the new is 8412. They both have the Mil Dot reticle. What is different about these two? Thanks

This is a guess, so keep that in mind.

 

Nikon got their ass's handed to them by Premier Reticle for the mil dot reticle they used.

Evidently, the mil dot in question was too close to PR's Gen II mil dot and they had to stop putting them in the Tactical model scopes or face a law suit.

May have even been a law suit, I don't know. 

 

So, maybe the 2 differant #'s are the 2 differant mil dots.

 

Like I said....Just a guess.

Well...that maybe it??? I did wonder the same thing, but not sure.

Maybe one of the SWFA guys would let us know for sure. Thanks

Nikon really needs someone on their design team to design reticles. Their idea of the new BDC and BDC-250 with all the o's looks rather strange.  I would really like to see a reticle with the top portion empty like a Dragunov above the 5th mil. the Lines of Leupolds TMR rather than the dots. The wind drift marks of Leupolds Varmit VXIII.  The fine lower line with more mils of IOR MP8 and the Trijicon system where the width of horizontal lines matches shoulder width at the correct hold over point for .308  and then have a model calibrated for 300 win mag and one for 338 Lapua.

Yep the Cheerie "O"s don't look that good.....To busy.
I wanted one, but after I tried the fine cross hairs with a single DOT, I have improved my shot placement. I would like to find a quality scope with a illuminated DOT on Fine cross hairs. But not a BSA, Baskin Robins or Lizard.

Answer to question: Leupold has anything you want in a Target Dot. Just pay the man.
