MOA-XT: Nightforce’s Newest Tree Style Long Range Reticle

When it comes to long-range shooting, precision and accuracy are paramount. Every serious shooter knows that having a reliable reticle can make all the difference in hitting targets at extended distances. That’s why Nightforce, a renowned name in the optics industry, has introduced their latest innovation – the MOA-XT reticle. In this blog post, we’ll explore the features and benefits of this cutting-edge reticle and how it can enhance your shooting experience.

The Reticle

The MOA-XT reticle is designed to provide unparalleled precision for long-range shooting. It is based on the popular Minute of Angle (MOA) system, which is a standard unit of measurement used in long-range shooting. Although many shooters have transitioned to use of the Mil for measurement, Nightforce wanted to provide a modern reticle for the needs of today’s long range shooters while still catering to those who prefer MOA. The MOA-XT reticle takes their riflescopes to the next level with its advanced features that offer shooters increased accuracy and versatility.

One of the key features of the MOA-XT reticle is its extended range capabilities. With additional holdover points and windage marks, this reticle allows for precise adjustments at longer distances. This is especially useful for shooters who engage targets beyond 1000 yards, where precise holdovers and windage corrections are critical. The MOA-XT reticle provides multiple aiming points, making it easier to compensate for bullet drop and wind drift, resulting in more accurate shots.

Another notable feature of the MOA-XT reticle is its intuitive design. The reticle features clear and easy-to-read markings, allowing for quick and efficient target acquisition. The well-defined hash marks and reference points make it easy to estimate distances, holdovers, and windage adjustments without any confusion or guesswork, while not cluttering the reticle with too much information This ensures that shooters can make fast and accurate adjustments on the fly, even in high-pressure shooting scenarios.

Furthermore, the MOA-XT reticle offers versatility for various shooting conditions. It features standard illumination, allowing for easy target acquisition in low-light conditions. The illuminated reticle enhances contrast and visibility, making it easier to see the reticle against dark backgrounds. This is particularly beneficial during early morning or late evening shoots when lighting conditions can be challenging.

The durability and reliability of the MOA-XT reticle are also worth mentioning. Nightforce is known for its high-quality optics, and the MOA-XT reticle is no exception. Like Nightforce’s other reticles, this is etched onto precision glass, which makes it shockproof, fog proof, and waterproof. It can withstand harsh weather conditions and rough handling without losing its accuracy. This ensures that the reticle remains reliable and functional, even in extreme shooting environments.

In addition to its performance features, the MOA-XT reticle is also available in Nightforce’s wide range of rifle scopes. It is offered in the Nightforce NX8 and ATACR riflescopes, providing shooters with a wide array of options to suit their shooting needs. This flexibility allows shooters to choose the best scope for their needs and budget.


In conclusion, the MOA-XT reticle from Nightforce is a game-changer for long-range shooters familiar with MOA. Its extended range capabilities, intuitive design, versatility, durability, and compatibility with Nightforce riflescopes make it an ideal choice for precision shooters. Whether you’re a professional sniper, a competitive shooter, or a hunting enthusiast, the MOA-XT reticle can help you take your shooting to the next level. With its advanced features and performance, the MOA-XT reticle is a top choice for those who demand the utmost accuracy and reliability in their optics. Upgrade your shooting game with the new Nightforce MOA-XT reticle and experience enhanced precision like never before.
