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.
