I understand your point of using a ranging reticle.

BTW: I prefer MOA to MIL hash marks as all my turrets are in MOA, my SIII had the LRMOA reticle. Also, my brain is now to fixed on MOA as 1000 yard wind calls from my shooting buddies/spotters are in mph and MOA. My brain works on the wind mirage in MOA.

Now if I could just get my Cow Elk hunt booked.... well that's where my head is today. Between now and then is pigs, in-state deer and ducks with falcons.
It's all what you get used to.

If you have a reticle with any kind of scale you can just use the holdover points instantly without fiddling and twidling if you know the approximate range.

On game animals I'm a hell of a lot more picky though but when it comes to predators and varmints I just want them dead.

If you ever get a chance look though an IOR with the MP-8 Reticle. It's my favorite reticle period and of course they have fantastic glass and features.

Wildrose I second that as regarding the IOR, I've had great results using the MP-8 reticle only using Holdover function out 800 yards.

It's the best reticle I've ever used. I buy IOR scopes literally just to get the reticle.

To him it is AND that is OK in my opinion. Personally I think LR is the shooters opinion of what they can do consistently and accurately. LR should not be measured by someone elses ability and equipment.

I think long range is 400 and out because that's where I take in consideration the wind

Re: What do you think long range is?

"Long Range' also is dependent on geographical location. Here in Michigan, long range can be considered anything past 150 yards because thats all the tree's will let you go. Probably why smoke poles and handguns are popular hunting alternatives.

Entirely depends on where you are at really.
