[Nightforce 2016] Mil-C Reticle

    The Mil-R reticle is one of Nightforce’s most popular offering in the companies ATACR scope line. However, due to requests from the Precision Rifle Series competitions, the company is going to be releasing the “Mil-C” Reticle. Initially the reticle will be released with the ATACR 5×25 F1 (First Focal Plane) scope at SHOT 2017, for the same price as other reticles currently offered in the same model scope.

    The advantages of the Mil-C is that the reticle will offer .2 Mil-Radian increments of adjustment throughout the stadia lines, allowing for much more precise adjustments, hold overs, and range estimation using the reticle as compared to the Mil-R, which has Mil-Radian increments at .5 Mils. In order to avoid confusion, the additional Mil-Radian lines are inverted, with the first and last increments placed on the left/bottom of the elevation/windage stadia lines, and the middle Mil-Radian lines placed on the right/top of the elevation/windage stadia lines. The Inverted ranging T is however unchanged and still present in the Mil-C, as it was in the Mil-R reticle. There are also new Mil-Radians introduced on the windage posts left and right, with the lines extending up and down.
