Re: 338 snipetac

Depends I guess on what you want to use it for, hunting or targer or both. Actually I guess this is one of those personal preference type questions

    For me SFP only for ELR work. I would think you will want the reticle to remain thin as possible and the target to grow in size as you crank up to max power. With the FFP the reticle grows in size along with the target as you increase power. I insist on the finest reticle I can get and a large target for the most precise point of aim.

    I should add I use the SFP's on all my hunting rigs as well as target, and that includes hunting in dark timber to open plains and across canyons. 20 yards to 2500 yards.
