Nightforce ATACR 4-16x50mm F2 Scope
A “bright, virtually perfect image…immune from recoil and just about anything else” is how experts describe the Nightforce ATACR 4-16x50mm F2 Scope. Its ED glass and virtually indestructible construction have distinguished the ATACR as the ultimate precision instrument for long range shooting among military, tactical professionals and civilian shooters alike. It will allow you to achieve the same kind of extreme performance from your hunting rifle.
Its resolution and clarity, in a second focal plane configuration, will fully realize the capability of the flattest shooting hunting cartridge. If the terms “high ballistic coefficient,” “low standard deviation” and “match grade” distinguish you from the ordinary hunter, then you’ll know why “extra low dispersion glass,” “repeatable adjustments” and “impact testing” distinguish the ATACR 4-16×50 from ordinary scopes. If you consider shooting to be the ultimate blend of art and science, and hunting for you is a way of life, the ATACR 4-16 x 50 is an absolutely brilliant idea.
Every possible advancement is standard with the ATACR 4-16 x 50, including an integrated Power Throw Lever, low profile ZeroStop elevation technology, DigIllum digital reticle illumination, faster diopter adjustment, and highly visible magnification markings. The windage adjustment is capped to prevent accidental adjustments in the field.
MIL-R – 10 Mils Reticle
.5 Mil and .10 Mil divisions allow for multiple zeroes, holdover, hold under and windage adjustments without touching elevation or windage knobs. Excellent for range estimation.
The Nightforce MIL-R reticle can provide you with an accurate distance to your target, when the size of the target is known, by utilizing one of the following Mil relation formulas:
Target Size in Inches ÷ Image Size Measured in Mils in Reticle x 27.77 = Distance in Yards
Target Size in Inches ÷ Image Size Measured in Mils in Reticle x 25.4 = Distance in Meters
Target Size in Centimeters ÷ Image Size Measured in Mils in Reticle x 10.93 = Distance in Yards
Target Size in Centimeters ÷ Image Size Measured in Mils in Reticle x 10 = Distance in Meters
For example, a standard stop sign measures 30” tall x 30” wide. Knowing the size of the target, in this case, a stop sign, and applying the correct formula above, you will be able to accurately calculate the distance to your target.
Known target size = 30”
Image size = 2.5 Mils. To measure image size of target in Mils, refer to the reticle diagram above.
Divide target size (30”) by image size in reticle (2.5) = 12
For distance in yards, multiply 12 x 27.77 (constant) = 333.24 yards to target.
For distance in meters, multiply 12 x 25.4 (constant) = 304.8 meters to target.
Your ability to accurately measure your target in your reticle does take some practice to become proficient.
The Nightforce MOAR reticle is a major advancement in precision shooting. A floating center crosshair two MOA wide and two MOA tall provides a precise aiming point— especially on smaller targets at longer ranges. One-MOA elevation and windage spacings provide for more accurate rangefinding and hold offs compared to ordinary reticles with coarser markings.
The Nightforce MOAR has thicker line subtensions than the traditional reticles, and is marked with 10, 20 and 30 MOA elevation indicators (10 and 20 MOA windage indicators), making it extremely fast and easy to view under field conditions.
The MOAR design is more intuitive, easier to see in low light and more visible against dark backgrounds and in shadows than other MOA reticles. Shooters will also find the 3, 6 and 9 o’clock posts to be an excellent asset for greater speed and target acquisition.
The MOAR has established new levels of precision and ease of use for the long range shooter.
