With 1 MOA elevation and windage markings, more accurate range finding and hold-offs are possible on smaller targets at longer ranges. Combined with a floating center crosshair, this makes for a reticle extremely fast and easy to use in the field. MOAR™ reticles in Nightforce 5.5-22x and 8-32x NXS models have a 20 MOA scale below centerline (at left). Reticles in 3.5-15x models have an additional 10 MOA scale below center.
The elevation and windage marks can be used for ranging objects when the size of the target is known. Bracket the target from top to bottom or side to side within the marks. Distance to target can then be determined using this formula:
- Target size in inches ÷ Image size (moa) x 95.5 = range in yards.
For field expedient ranging inside of 500 yards, a constant of 100 can be used in place of 95.5.
Please note that accurate rangefinding with the MOAR™ reticle can only be accomplished at the power settings shown above.
