Funny you should say that. I was thinking the same thing. I'll be using this scope at are local 100 yard range a lot, developing loads, etc.
Next most frequent use will be in an elevated shooting house overlooking a cut over that we hunt.
And once, maybe twice a year, it'll go down to shoot a long range match at 800, 900 and 1000 yards.
I've discovered this scope>
And here is the reticle>
Comes in 10x50 and 15x50, which is fine for my hunting needs and the 15x will allow me to see .22 caliber hole at 100 yards. But it also has the option of a 2x Doubler. I contacted the fine folks at Vortex today and the guy gave it a try and said it works "surprisingly well" (his words). Normally I wouldn't take a lot of stock in what someone from a company tells me but I've dealt with Vortex on several occasions and they are straight shooters. I may give this one a try.
