If you are going to use the reticle for hold over reference points, the TMR is the best by a large margin simply because it offers all the advantages of the Mil Dot system but wuth the added advantages of no dots to cover up alot of the target, plus, it has the 1/2 mil hash marks as well.
Basically there are 1.8 moa between each hash on the TMR instead of the 3.6 moa for the conventional mil dot. Much less guessing involved when your using the reticle for reference hold points at long range.
If you are dialing up for the each long range shot, I recommend the Plex or as it is the simplest and least cluttered. If your dialing up for the shot, no need for the other reference points unless you want some windage reference points but usually those that dial up for each shot also dial in the windage as well.
The scope is a very quality scope by the way, good choice.

I will echo what Fifty said, If you are dialing then there really isnt a need for the TMR or Mil dot reticle. YOu can obviously use them still but your knobs do the same job. I know some people who dial for elevation and use the reticle for windage holds but my mind is too simple for all of that.
One great feature of the TMR is a very small gap where the crosshairs would join. A pdog at 1500yds fits right in there!!! To bad I cant kill the little sucker!!!!!!! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
YOu wont be disapointed in the scope, great glass for a decent cost

As for the hold over points, I will be dialing the elevation and most likely the windage.
However a quick shot at 300 might be better with a hold over.
The little gap in the crosshair is what drew me to this reticle the most. All the scopes I currently use block out the center of the target which makes precise aiming more difficult.
Is the gap too small to be beneficial on anything larger than PD's?
I would like to look through one, but cant find one in this part of the world to do so with.
I don't really like the idea of spending that much on a scope that I haven't even had my hands on, but I haven't been anywhere that has high end optics.

Are mils 3.6 MOA or 3.6"? I go by 3.6" or 3.44 MOA. Am I wrong on that?
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
