This is you rationalizing what doesn't pass tests..
THE problem: You can't hardly center bullet holes at 100yds with FFP set at 24x, because the reticle is too large. A groundhog at distance(like 500) is like a bullet hole at 100. So to center on the target area a GH provides at 500yds, you would need to turn the power down.
With SFP, NONE of this is an issue(just the opposite). SFP targeting resolution increases with power.
And what is the advantage of FFP scopes for a hunter? There may be something in a stretch.
But there does not exist, a FFP scope(even the $best of the $best), that is as precise an aiming instrument at distance as SFP scopes like NXS, Mk4, March, etc.
And whatever results you can produce at 700 with FFP, you could do better with SFP.
I think HUNTERS should consider this
