I am leaning in this direction as well.
Might need to contact you to help speed up the learning curve.

Good point, I use the ffp mil system myself in comps and hunting. You may want to look into getting a mil-dot master if you dont have one, lots of information in a small, light package.

Well to each his own, I do find it strange why most people shooting precision rifle matches seem to lean towards ffp, there must be a reason for that.
