It's getting warm in here, isn't it?
Back to topic.
I prefer the FFP in higher powered scopes (>10), because the mirage at 20x or 24x can be too distracting, so I'd rather leave it at a lower power and still have the mildots calibrated. At the lower powers and shorter ranges, I don't really need the calibration and/or the mirage isn't an issue, so I don't see much advantage FFP vs SFP.
I've never had a problem with the reticle covering the target at longer range, but I understand there are different reticles that might.
So, some advantage, but not much.
That said, most of my hunting rifles have SFP, and those rifles are used in spot and stalk. SFP, because I just don't see many FFP/mildot arrangements that I can afford. I'd LOVE to have all S&Bs with Holland's ART... but that ain't gonna happen.
