Nightforce Velocity Reticles
In response to demand for additional designs of their Velocity series reticles, Nightforce is now offering new reticles engineered for precision shooting to 1000 yards. Virtually all modern rifle cartridges will adapt to one of the Nightforce V reticles, with minimal point-of-impact deviation from the reticle's markings. Once the range of the target is known, the shooter merely chooses the corresponding elevation mark and aims dead on.
Nightforce has instead created a vast range of extremely accurate and dedicated reticles designed to meet specific ballistic requirements for virtually all modern rifle cartridges. V series reticles were created for applications where maximum speed and accuracy is critical. To complement the reticles, Nightforce has created an online ballistic calculator that allows the shooter to enter their specific cartridge details. It then indicates the specific V reticle that most closely matches their ballistics.
