Lot of personal preference on this one. A good portion of the guys here will dial first of all.

My personal favorite is Holland's ART

Holland's also advertises on LRH too.

I like the leupold TMR. Its a Millradian reticle and there is some debate about having a mil reticle and dialing MOA but I mainly use it for windage. Whatever you choose just learn to use it or it will be just something cool to look at while you miss

I like MP-8 Reticle. I owned before a mildot scope, and i'm wonder how the Hell I did use that type of reticle. It works great but now with MP-8 (new generation of 1/2 mildot hash line) is BETTER.
Lots of view and better holdings.

IORs MP-8 set to MOA instead of 1/2 mill works for me.
