xphunter, now that is an interesting reticle. I assume they provide good information for how to use their reticle with the purchase of one of their scopes. What's FFP stand for?

My favorite reticle



The 2 MOA spacing is ideal IMHO and for my use works perfectly for hold over or dialing or a combination of both....

FFP=First Focal Plane
In a second focal plane scope (found in the majority of variables) the subtension (distance between the lines/dots) changes when you change magnification.
In a FFP scope the subtension does not change when you change power. the downside is the reticle gets thicker as you turn the power up. For hunting this is not a negative. For precision shooting at small targets like PD's, I would prefer the thinner reticle in the SFP variables where the reticle thickness remains the same.

Oh, I forgot to mention that Darrell gives all of the techical help you will need and you get some software to boot that includes some practical laminated range cards for use at the bench or in the field.

xphunter,
Thanks for the clarification. I've tried the Horus scopes, but was too much crap in the view to make it real practical. I'm liking that DH reticle. Any one else have any other suggestions? I tend to lean towards simple rather than complex.

Big Sky,
Your Welcome.
If you are ever in the Gillette area, I would let you see the scopes for yourself. Of course, they are on specialty handguns. I don't have any centerfire rifles.
