, Michael Eichele and royinidaho for kind detailed comments. To be truthful, I've 3x12 56 Swarovski on two of my rifles. One big flaw I find with variable is that frequently I use the highest mag to study things, and leave it there, only to find real target popping up closer and moving. I'll be using laser range finder. I'm glad to hear that Sightron tracks very well. It's one of my considerations, particularly for its huge elevation adjustment range, which may allow for 0 moa scope base. I always hunt guided. This would be a learning scope for LR. If it doesn't work well, I'd change it before I actually hunt LR. What do you guys think?
The way I've hunted was to get to a high point, and glass. Once a good trophy is located, the guide and I put up a stalk. The way I figure, for LR, once the quarry is spotted, at most it would be is to get into a better shooting spot. BTW the furthest stalk I had was a brown about 4 miles, in Alaska Peninsular. My guide had exceptional sight.
Oh! I checked my original post, and realize my error. I don't mean using mil dot for ranging, but for reference aiming point, if I don't want to dial up, once the distance is lasered
