Re: Reticle/Turret Dial.....how bout both
I've shot the HS LR a lot and ran and hunted three methods with it, using the turret for MOA dial, using the BDC reticle and then having a turret tape made and running a ballistic turret.
Using the reticle became just a pain in the hind end, the idea is great but in practical use you have to still remember where each hash is at then adjust for never being at just the right range.
Dialing MOA works perfectly for long ranges where you have time to bring up a solution and dial it in but the reality of using it in closer ranges where you really only have time to range and shoot it's just slow but the best for straight up long range shooting.
The ideal solution I think is the ballistic turret but I get mine made with the MOA marks at the bottom so I retain the usability for long range precision dialing while adding a very good fast solution for shooting out to 600 or so yards. I found I can range dial and shoot very, very fast with a ballistic turret but then revert to dialing a precision solution when the time is available or range dictate it. This works very well the HS LR because you have 24 MOA in one rev which make is super fast with the ballistic turret!!
