You mixed the two. What scopes do you use on your hunting rifles? Tatical (exposed turrets) or regular hunting scopes?

Exactly!!!

Like ICANHITHIMMAN said, tacticool is just marketing hype.

Most of my scopes have exposed turrets and hunting reticles.

My main scope is a Leupold 6.5-20x56 VX3L Varmint Extreme. It's a regular hunting scope with a lot of tactical features.

And, I wouldn't hesitate to use a NF benchrest scope for LRH.

Happy hunting.

Thank you for clearing that up. I understand what you all mean by it's just a marketing hype. Just curious I guess on people's preferences
