FFP Tactical Scope???

I am having a hard time finding a FFP Tactical scope which is "about" 4-20x50mm for around $8oo or less. Is there such a scope with Mil-dot or something similar?

I almost went for a Wonder, Falcon or a Leupold VX III, but I'm told they are all SFP.

Weaver is supposed to have one out about now.

They told me that it is better than the older discontinued tactical. I have one of the older ones and think its worth its weight in gold!

Check with SWFA price was to be less than 800???

The Falcons are most definitely FFP... The Falcon 5-25 is probably your best bet in that price range (with that much magnification).

Note: Just make sure you box test the scope you end up with -- lots of folks have had no problems; but I had a 4-14 whose click adjustments were about 20% too small.

FFP=First Focal Plane

SFP=Second Focal Plane

FFP reticles change in size with the magnification allowing for ranging at any magnification setting.

SFP reticles are calibrated for ranging at specific magnification settings.

I don't want to hijack this thread but which of the 2 (SFP and FFP) is preferred and why?
