Did the laser RF killed the MilDot ??

I wonder if the laser RF killed or not the MilDot or other type of reticle used to aid in distance determination.

I guess out there are many experienced users who can give some insight on this.

tks!

I use them for holdovers when time restraints don't allow dialing.

The mildot reticle can be used for many things in addition to ranging (as can any calibrated and marked reticle).

The mildot (or other calibrated reticle) is great for movers and hold-offs.

It is also cool to have a mil dot when all the other guys in the group are using duplex rets. I love to get the question "what are those bumps for?" Then a new long range shooter sprouts from the ground.

My experience was that I was not consistently accurate when ranging w/the mil dot. LRF solved that (when you get a reading).

However, the mil dot is the cats meow for hold over w/o clicking. Really like it.
