Re: Do you use an illuminated reticle on your riflescope?
Not usually. Only night hunting coyotes and for that the intensity needs to be at a minimum to get rid of that awful glare.
On long range rigs it is not something that important to me. But if there is a chance the scope will be used for night calling then yes, it is a good thing. We did do some long range shooting at night once (glow sticks taped to steel targets) for this the Ill. ret. was a good deal. That stuff is fun, try it.
