Are these recticles exceptable for long range hunting, or should I look at picking up a basic fine duplex and sending it off the the custom shop for a TMR. The 4.5x14x50mm in B&C I found is a pretty good deal.
The long range with side focus and 30mm tubes are fine scopes. I like the 50mm objectives
but on some rifles I use the 40mm objectives.
The B&C reticles are good and if you are going to dedicate a scope to 1 rifle and load the
custom reticle is nice and they are good to 500yrds.
For small targets/game in good light I would go with the fine duplex to get a much better
hold.( With the fine reticle you see more of the game with out covering it up ).
I don't know if this helps but maybe it will .
