I have sighted on game till the last minutes of legal shooting here. Never had an issue seeing the R1 even at 1500 yards. But when I put the crosshairs on a coyote at 1500 I sure do not want a thicker reticle than the R1. If the MOAR "thin" ever comes about I will probably try one. But it really offers me nothing for my prefered type of hunting or shooting over the R1.
