MOAR Reticle

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 range finding and hold offs compared to ordinary reticles with coarser markings.

The Nightforce MOAR has thicker line subtensions than 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 Nightforce SHV scopes for sale.


The Nightforce Forceplex reticle was created by and for hunters. Designed with direct customer feedback, it is simple and uncomplicated, with a clean, unobstructed field of view. The fourplex design has long been prized by hunters around the world for the way the heavier lines center your eye quickly on the target…yet we’ve made no compromises on precision, with 0.125 MOA center crosshairs that allow precise shot placement on the smallest target—even at extended distances.

The Nightforce Forceplex is available in illuminated and non-illuminated versions, depending upon the SHV riflescope you choose. It is superb in low-light environments, and will serve you well on any game, from the dense forests of North America to the vast plains of Africa.
