Here we go again.
With the Vortex 6-24x50mm PST FFP MOA scope the reticule at 6x is very fine and as you increase the power the reticule gets larger all the way up to 24x. While the reticule is getting "THICKER" your TARGET ALSO GETS THICKER BY THE SAME AMOUNT as the RETICULE. ( AS AN EXAMPLE ) If you are sighting at a prairie dog at 100 yds at 6x the reticulate is about the same as the prairie dogs eye. If you increase the power to 24x the reticule becomes 24 times as thick AND so does the prairie dogs EYE. You don't realize that you still are covering only the eye at 6x and at 24x.
I think that shooters that get used to shooting with the FFP usually like it better then the SFP scopes. The SFP reticule is slightly thinner then the FFP.
If I can shoot three 5 shot groups in competition at 1,000 yards with my PST 6-24x50mm MOA scope set at 24 power that measured 11+1/4" and 8+1/8" and 10+3/16" I'd say I can hold the reticule pretty accurate. I have also shot a 3+1/4" three shot group at the same target to find where I was hitting to adjust the scope so my groups would be centered in the target. This was done with my hunting rifle I had built for antelopes in Wyoming.

No matter what you use you need to have confidence in your equipment.
PS: All 15 shots plus the 3 sighters would have hit the boiler room of an antelope.
