Good point, but if I go with a varmint reticle, there is no dialing up is there? I thought as long as my ballistics match the scope, all I have to do is hold over at yardage.

    Walker1 ,i think the varmint reticle would be great for prairie dogs but a little too busy for quick shots. thats most likely why your friend hardly uses his! if a coyote takes off and you have to take a running shotwell just think about it.
