I guess I could have elaborated a little more as I'm familiar with FFP vs SPF issue and my intended point is that the intent of this BDC function is instant ranging and holdover, ie if the coyotes chest fits in the circle then that's the one you shoot, I agree a SFP reticle is useless for ranging unless you are the prescribed magnification, specified a 9x on the coyote special, or another SFP scope for that matter....I do a lot of calling and my scope is always turned to the lowest setting........now say I need to range a coyote hung up out there, I have to crank the scope up to use the BDC functions......it sounds fine in theory but doesn't work for me!
Like I said I ordered this scope cause it was cheap enough and the camo pattern matched a rifle that I won.......you get what you pay for and that's exactly what I got!!
