Mil dot or Tmr? M1 or Target?

Im sending leupold in a vx3 4.5x14x40 scope Iv had for awhile having them change out the fine duplex reticle for either the mil dot or tmr reticle. Which one do you think is better for long range hunting?

Im also having them switch out the elevation turret for either an m1 or the target turret. Which one do you think is better for hunting situations?

Finally, if I dial my range on the elevation turret can I hold for windage with the reticle. I mean are the measurments beteen the mil dots or hash marks moa or mils. Im wanting to do the same thing as the Huskemaw/ Grey Bull Scopes?

Thanks

Re: Mil dot or Tmr? M1 or Target?

Go with the TMR and the M1 turrets. That's what I did....

My 280 - Updated!

Read the entire post, the optics on the rifle changed a couple of times. The final optic set up is a VX3 4.5-14x40 with TMR reticle and M1 knobs (not sure if I posted a pic of the VX3)

The TMR is nice because the cross hairs don't actually intersect at the center. This means tiny targets at long range are not covered up by the crosshairs. FYI...TMR=Tactical Milling Reticle - so it's in mils not MOA.

In terms of the knobs, I like the M1 because then you don't have a cover that you can lose or fumble with to remove in order to get a quick shot off.

Also, have a 308 with a Leupold MK4. it came from the factory with the TMR and M1. Love it!

Life is a lot easier if you go mil mil or moa moa. In other words match the turrets
to the reticle.

You could also consider a CDS turret, available with our without zero stop.

Functionally the same as the M1, but not a whole lot bigger than the factory standard turret.
