I recall you saying that you had a self imposed range of 750 yards.
That would warrent the rangefinder scale at that distance and I see why you like that one.
I can't remember a shot less then 1050 yds that we have taken to kill our game while LR hunting.
We are talking different yardages here and the norm is 1250 "plus" and usually out to 1500 or more for us.
Like I mentioned, the spotter round first works best for us at the range we shoot.
Some have stated they don't like the additional ranging grids in the view finder & some do not.
I happen to be on the side of the one's who don't.
That certainly does not make me right and someone else wrong.
It's just something that has worked for many of the Longrange hunters I have been around for 25 or 30 yrs now.
I guess we can all "agree to disagree" with the others point of view and let the newbie make his choice in the field and at the yardage he wants to shoot.
It's real hard to argue with "actual fire" when seeing the bullet impact with the spotter first system at extended range.
As you know, most if not all ballsitics charts are not dead on from day to day and at different altitudes.
Actual fire now comes into play
