Re: Using mil dots as a holdover

I just bought a Falcon FFP 4-14 mil/mil and was thinking about mounting it on my Edge to test it. The Edge killed three $1500 3-18 FFP IOR's and has sent my $1200 Leupold packing a couple times. I wanna see how this $400 scope compairs.

    I have Darrell Holland's Ultimate Mil Reticle on an XP-100 6.5 WSM handgun. Shooting the 140 A-Max the 1st shot out of this rig with new scope (on a game animal) was a 435-yd. coyote calcd. at 1.5 mil holdover. At the bullet's impact the dog stood up spun a couple times and fell over dead.

    Those Holland reticle are nice, but $450 buys alot of practice ammo!

    Fireroad,

    here is some good info on mil-dot based system, (great for hold overs), and also a review of the Falcon Menace (if you havent read it yet)..
    I dont have a Horus or Falcon, but I am seriously considering either of them for my 10FP.

    Thanks Lever-hed, I'll give them a read. The Falcon seems like a great deal on a FFP scope, a little too heavy for my taste, but still a great deal. Who has them in stock regularly? Ever vendor I found on the net is out.
