Re: Honest opinions please!

I have a Swarovski 4-16X50 with the 4A Reticle on a Sako Grey Wolf 7RM which is very visable even in low light and 400yds is no problem. I would be concerned that the BDC might get hard to see in low light with adark back ground. But I'm no expert.

    Re: Honest opinions please!

    BDC reticles are only accurate to a specific bullet/velocity combination. There is no comparison for long range accuracy, turrets are the only way to go. I own both Leupold Mk IV 4.5-14X50 and Vortex PST 6-24x50 scopes. Both are excellent. The Vortex is a better value but quality are both about equal.

    I hear you jammer, but I don't plan on shooting further than 450 yards, and yeah I know about shooting bdc reticles.

    OK. I didnt see anything about 450 yd limitation. Given that caveat, a BDC can be made to work.

    Not so, they can be customized. Use the Spot on program enter your specific info and their you go.

    The bad side is 1 cheat sheet for 1 power setting unless you get one in the first focal plane.
