Rangefinding reticles

Since it seems that mil-dot reticles are currently a prize pain in the backside to export from the USA does anyone know if the following will or won't upset the state department. Burris ballistic plex or ballistic mildot? Since neither is a true mil-dot reticle.
I would prefer a Gen 2 mildot from Premier reticles but that appears to not be a opyion until the post sept 11 paranoia settles down.

Re: Rangefinding reticles

A Nightforce with the R2 reticle is superior for holdovers and also rangfinding, least that's my opinion and I'm stickin to it. [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img] Rangefinding with the R2 is much more simplified as well. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img] I won't mention how much better I think the scope is than a Burris either.

Maybe consider an IOR with mildot or MP8 rangefinding reticle.

I can give you the contact details so you can deal directly with the manufacturers in Romania. It should work out as cheap as ordering from a US supplier, but without the red tape.

You can view the scopes on the US site

Re: Rangefinding reticles

Hi Drawn,
Premier will not export mildot or gen 2 mildot scopes.
Hi 700 Can you cotact me on craig.z.v@paradise.net.nz please.
Hi Brent I can get nightforce easily but for this particular job I was looking for a smaller lighter scope than the nightforce and a 1st focal plane reticle so I can use holdovers on any power.
Cheers guy's
