Vortex 6x24x50 ffp MOA on its way!

Well my wife bought me the scope described above for fathers day. Just found out it is on it's way! I can't wait till it gets here. I have done alot of research over the last year, and have found that for the money, I don't think you can get a better scope,W/all the bells and whistles. I bought a cheap Barska 4-16 x 50 for my 270wsm. It is what you would expect for $100.00 only worse. I shot my first groups at 300(1st time at that distance) and know with a better scope the groups will shrink(1.487, extreme spread). Will post a reveiw and more pics.as the weeks go on.

No, the hash marks are 2 MOA separation at all power levels on the FFP.

I actually don't mind the 2 MOA separation for hunting, it keeps the reticle cleaner. Really though, using the reticle for holdover is secondary for me, I prefer to dial the turrets. However, I do like the quick shot capability of the MOA reticle for holdovers.

For the in between shots bracketing the animal between the 2 MOA hash marks shouldn't be an issue with big game, the smaller targets may be a problem.

For the really long shots you should have enough time to set up and dial the turret and hold dead on.
