Re: FFP or SFP Please vote
It is very subjective and the reality is that 90% of guys haven't used both so they really don't have much experience to compare them properly. I use both but for big game I like FFP scopes.
The more you use a reticle for any reason, drop, drift, range, calling shots, etc., the more you will like FFP scopes. FFP also eliminates the potential for error as the reticle subtends the same across the entire magnification range. If you don't use the reticle the advantages lessen.
Just an FYI, because you will hear a lot of misinformation on FFP, despite what many say the reticle does not grow in size as you increase power. It stays exactly the same size in relation to the target throughout the entire magnification range. So if it is precise enough at low power it will be just as precise at high power. It is more accurate to say that with SFP scopes the target grows in relationship to the reticle as power is increased.
*I like using the reticle
*I like reducing the chance for error
*I find a reticle that covers 2% of the vitals of a typical whitetail to be more than precise enough to ensure proper shot placement.
Practice is the key for either options so get one that best suits your needs then get out and use it!
