Re: FFP or SFP Please vote
Second focal all the way, with a FFP on low power in low light I have to turn on the reticle light to find it then during good light and I want turn up the magnification the reticle is thick compared to what I want it to be, FFP is completely backward for the me in a hunting situation.
I've also found with holding over or holding of with windage the SFP is much more versatile if you do a little research, my scope right now has the substentions marked on the power ring so I can look at what I need to hold over and if I'm not on a hash mark I can turn it down till it matches very close and let it have it. I can also get more direct hold point if I us two different powers.
I really dig my Vortex HS LR, with my 270 WSM at 7000ft elevation I'm one turn to 1100 yards and I can reach 2000 yards dialing but you have to start being aware of needing to adjust your hold just a bit at some point. For a hunting optic for the average hunter who has extended his hunting range out to 800-1000 yards max it seems ideal to me!
