lit reticle makes thin hashes easy to pick up in low light. fresh batteries before the hunt and dont carry extras. 30mm tube means more elevation adjustment and greater light transmission.

Amen! My eyes are getting old, and they are doing so faster than the rest of me. A lit reticle wasn't something necessary when I was 23, but 30 years later it really matters. Actually I got my first scope with a lit reticle about 30 years ago, only because that was what the gunsmith had in stock to mount on my slug-gun. I was amazed how much faster I was to get on target when light was "less than perfect". It made me a better shot.
