Johnnybar,

How much money you looking to spend on your scope purchase?

I have spotted own miss rock shooting at 1200-1500 and been able to read reticule and connect on #2
Agreed. MILS offer fewer clicks, smaller numbers to remember and work with, and about the perfect size of adjustment per click IMO. Add FFP to it and I really start to get giddy!

It is interesting, Greybull, BOTW, and the G7 boys all use, or used at one point, 1/3 MOA turrets which is almost exactly what a .1 MIL click is. I don't use the yardage turrets like they do but a lot of the other concepts are very similar. For shooting out to 800-1000 yards I think it is tough to beat for an easy, quick, and accurate system for big game. Change things up a bit, ie smaller targets or longer ranges, and my requirements change a bit but I think most guys would be surprised how simple and accurate a reticle can be.

I have one too. I also use the wet finger method.....

...but then, one of my hunting buds has taken lots of elk and mule deer using the wet finger/Kentucky windage methid and he always mounts a very affordable 6-9 scope too (Tasco fan).....

Leupold Optics.

For most of their scopes you can get it installed for 140.00.

True, but Shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!
Just go buy a nighrforce with a kick butt reticle, & donate your Leupy to me..... Ill take one for the team

I shoot with the same scope, Leupold VX-III 4.5-14X40 A/O that I sent to Leupold Custom shop for the B&C Varmint hunter reticle. $109.99 exact change. Has windage in the reticle. Super easy, & quick for those 600-yd shots. a different reticle for ranges past that would probably serve you better, but for 600 & in, I LOVE mine.
If you have a vx-III or better, a whole world of inexpensive upgrades are available thru the Leupold custom shop. Even if your are not the origional purchaser of the scope! Pretty cool......
But you want a nightforce (I'm ever so sneaky sending subliminal messages)......Leupolds should all be donated to winmag....... He will give them a good home......
