Without spending almost $4000 on the best scope in the world IMO, the US Optics 5-25x58mm, 34mm tube w/H37 reticle, I went with what I consider the next best rifle scope out there... the Horus Falcon 5-20x50mm, 30mm STEEL tube with the H-37 reticle.
With any Horus reticle, you zero at 100m/yds then use the reticle for all other uses. That simple. Horus has MOA and MIL reticles. No dial ups, no dialing for wind or movers. Use your ballistic program if you have one or a whiz wheel / cheat sheet/ range card for your holds.
The glass is crystal clear and the scope is practically indestructible. The turrets have caps so they will not be bumped by accident or fouled in anyway.
I use the H-37 reticle with an internal 17.5 moa (4 mils) offset and Burris Signature Z rings with the .010 posi-align inserts for an additional 19.5 MOA on a flat picatinny rail. So I can actually use the reticle, without dial ups, out to 1500m +. The reticle is easy to use once you spend a bit of time learning how shoot it. Although it is a fine reticle, it is easy to see in practically all lighting conditions. The reticle is also illuminated if you find yourself shooting into shadows or bright backgrounds.
Horus backs all of their products 100% of the time and the staff is great to work with.
But rifles and riflescopes are an individual choice according to your use and taste. I prefer Jack Daniels... you might be a Manhattan person. It's all about choice and one shot... one kill.
Good Luck Pardner! Happy and Successful Shooting!!
