You guys might want to check out the March F 3-24 42mm or the March FX 5-40 56mm scopes. Both FFP, mil/mil with great reticles. Solidly built and much smaller and lighter than other premium scopes. Parallex focus to 10 meters. Nonilluminated versions are $2260 and $3200, respectively. Illuminated versions a few hundred more. The FX 5-40 has centrally open reticle with 0.05 mil dot. Only distributed by Kelby Rifles here in the US.

Thanks Sir! Stay Warm!

I would definitely stay away from MOA/MIL. Go with either MIL/MIL or MOA/MOA.

Also, I forgot probably my favorite FFP reticle which is the HMDR G2 from Bushnell. It is very well designed. .05 MIL line thickness everywhere except in the crosshairs section where it is .03 MIL thickness. The scopes with that reticle are just hitting markets or will soon be so they are a big hard to find but their tactical line has a very solid reputation in all departments and they should be fantastic.

Re: FFP or SFP Please vote

I really appreciate all the guidance. I'm going to keep looking for a mil/mil G2XR type reticle. I found a Falcon 5.5-25x50 FFL illum with that reticle at SWFA for a very reasonable price. Hey Riley, unfortunately over here in Afghanistan, my internet server restricts some types of files and https so unfortunately I can't get pics from photobucket.. But I did find the Vortex site and checked the reticle. It looks like it would be very useful. I've been trained on mil/mil and ranging with reticles so it'll be an easy switch.

Thanks for the help!

Doc
