Oh man, no question the TMR. .5 mil line stadia units, and .2 mil for the last mil. (allows for .02 mil. rangefinding accuracy interpolatively for excellent accuracy).

Re: TMR or mildot

definately TMR. I have in a 4.5X14 and love it. I like the 4.5 for walking and the 14 gives enough to reach out to 1000 pretty easly. Once you learn the TMR reticle you will see the mildot is obsolete. the TMR is much more precise and capable.

Re: TMR or mildot

tmr for sure!
just got back from eastern montana and did some shooting out to 1302yrds (leica geovid) rifle is a nesika 300wm that shoots very well, i wasn't impressed with the tmr initially when doing groups on paper at 200 yards, BUT the open center cross hair is the best when you start stretching out the distance and a conventional center would cover up the target. we were shooting it at 20 power...i would say that 14 is adequate to 1000, but after that the extra magnification is very nice.

Ditto on the TMR-Much more precise reticle.

I love it. I thought the MP-8 was the best... that is until I peered into the Leupy. View from 1332 yards away.

Re: TMR or mildot

I say TMR, because - if nothing else - the glass doesn't apear to be cluttered up.

I have nothing against MilDot either.

Because it's going on a long range rilfe, go 6.5-20 power.
