Re: Scope Reticle Question
I've got a couple duplex, one BDC, and a couple mil-based reticles (MLR). The rifle wearing the duplex is sighted in for max point blank range and never changed. I don't shoot long range with it, don't hold-over with it, and don't dial with it. I put the cross hairs on the vitals and anything within 250 dies. It's clean and simple, and I like it for what it does.
The MLR reticle rifle is for longer range, so the scope is dialed and the hashes used for hold-over. I prefer the MLR over mil-dots because I find them to be more precise.
The BDC reticle is alright, but it's not close enough to trust for much past 300 yards. And then only on larger targets. I won't get another BDC.
