Re: .1 mil or .25 moa, which is best for long range precision shooting?

I guess the follow-up for LR would be ...1st FP or 2nd FP and why. My 300RUM sports a Sightron SIII 8-32X56 with the LRMOA reticle in 2nd FP. I REALLY like the set up of the reticle and the fact that the little dot in the middle does not change size through the power range. I do not have to make fast calculations to aquire targets so having a 24 power "sweetspot" doesn't matter on this set-up.......

Hey also guys my millett is 2nd. focal plane an it works great for me cuz I'm running a LRF so is there any actual justification for spending the extra money for a 1st. focal plane?

Read about both and find the one that fits your needs. Use the search at the upper right of page. This topic is worn out over and over. There really is nothing new to say.

I have used and owned both. I now only use SFP, I prefer a reticle that stays thin as the target gets bigger when magnification is increased, for long range work. I dial my shots, and hold over only for follow ups. The SFP will do this just as good or better for me.

An earlier post said 1 mil at a 1000 yards was 3.6 ". I know what you meant and I know ...il is 3.6"@100 yards and 36"@1000 yards.

As has been previously stated, choose whichever you're more comfortable with. Both systems get it done.
