I found this article Introduction to High-End Long-Range Rifle Scopes
which was very helpful for long range competition shooting and providing what type of scopes are available for competition.
This article did not go into the type(s) of reticles most shooters use. Seems like I read where the Army is using a Fine Cross reticle or Fine Cross with a small center dot.
It would seem that some of the more sophisticated mil dot scopes or scopes with reticles designed to be used with ballastic calculators would be a lttile cluttered for competition.
I would appreciate advice on what reticle would be practical to use and should it be illuminated or not.
