Nightforce has long been one of the top tactical optics makers, with basically its entire line designed for professionals and those serious about long-range precision accuracy. The company's newest reticle, the 1,000 Yard Velocity, is designed to let anyone, no matter their experience, achieve precise shot placement out to 1,000 yards for five ballistic profiles (no word yet as to the exact profiles, but it's safe to assume .308 Win. and .338 Lapua Mag. will be included). The reticle has holdover points for every 100 yards from 400 to 1,000 and windage bars, along with a 2 mil ranging bar above the crosshair. Here's a better explanation from Nightforce's Mark Bonnalie.

High-Tech Handloading

I now keep all my ammunition-creation data on a computer. Sure, I’ll make notes when working up a new load or tweaking an existing one, but ultimately my data is stored digitally. Since my loading room is only steps from my computer, the transition from written to digital data has been easy for me. Now that I’m using the handloading app from RCBS, it’s even easier, and it also makes recreating my favorite loads when I’m at the loading bench more convenient.
