Read my post concerning the CDS turrets and how many MOA. I think youll find it very informative. I recived some great feedback, and have contacted the custom shop twice. In a round about way it leads into Target turrets and M-1 turrets.
As far as reticle goes, I think its a personal preferance issue. I prefer the B&C to get me to 500ish, and prefer to dial for the longer ranges where accuracy is paramount. Ive looked at both the target turrets and the M-1's and like em both. I here the M-1's are a tic "tougher", and theyre within $10 bucks of the target turrets if ordered from the custom shop, plus you can get calibrated Target turrets or calibrated M-1 turrets if you choose, so the cds is out of the picture for me.
Hope this helped, even if it was only a little...... Good luck
