Re: SFP or FFP

I chose using SFP and sometimes using reticle subtensions for hold.
My opinion is if it is a "fast" shot, all you are going to be doing is holding center out to 300 yards or whatever your maximum point blank range is. If its farther than that, you shouldn't be doing any fast shooting--IMO. After that, you should have time to dial and if you are shooting long and have to make a fast follow up you can use your reticle marks especially if you can spot your shots. This works for me but I always get them with the first shot......

Re: SFP or FFP

Are you in the market for a new scope?

I sometimes hold on game using reticle sub tensions LR hunting situations. I prefer FFP.


^^^My vote. For both of my critters last year, I used holdover on a FFP (TMR) scope. So far so good; can that change down the road? Sure. Then again, my last aquisition was another FFP (USO).

I have & use both, I am honestly still open to using both. Neither have left me needing or wanting more.

As of now it's FFP.

If you decide you made a mistake I think you should be able to sell the scope pretty quickly.
