methinks that the ML16 will be better suited IMO. FFP scopes are not really used or well know in South Africa, most average hunters just buy a scope (which is invariably SFP) and shoot with guestimate holdover, only your serious target/hunters who reload and have custom guns are aware of such differences. Again price is a big factor here, for example a NF NXS 5.5-22X56 NP-R2 FFP is approx $2 280 in South Africa. I can get the Menace in the UK and a buddy there will mail it to me a la gift wrap birthday special, no US or UK dealers may send a scope to (most) foreign countries without export license.
Reson why I want to go this route is to give myself max advantage when hunting, wounded animals cost money! And some of the animals (like Springbuck and Impala) are pretty small at 250m so you need to be accurate.
I am not ware of any custom drop turret guys in SA, will have a check. I am sure if I want to go that route sometime I can send my specifics to a US dealers and they can make it there? That would sure be another way to go and be convenient. MIL's is easy for me since it is 1cm at 100m, there's no time for math in the field! Keen on getting a Leupold rangefinder TBR 600 so will range in m and give drops in MIL, easy enough, so now all I need to do is est wind and shoot properly (that's the easy part isn't it ! ;-))
The Vortex scopes are nice, but again the PST's are in NF price range here, $2 200 and up. Madness.
thanks for all the comments gents,
