The eyebox on the SS's is uber forgiving too.

Folks denigrate the mil-quad reticle because of the diamonds. I don't think those folks even took the time to try to understand how that particular reticle works. When it is studied, and the reticle's subtensions are understood, those diamonds create excellent points of aim.

I feel like I am talking myself into keeping them...
And the diamonds on the 5-20 are hollow giving a more see through picture. It is a really good reticle. I have it on my 3-9 and like it a lot. Now better than the EBR-2B, nope. That is one of my favorite reticles.

Re: SWFA SSHD's 5-20x50

What is advantage of Mil on Mil ? If I was to buy one where could I learn to operate one ?

The benefit with MIL/MIL, or MOA/MOA for that matter, is that the turrets and the reticle work together because they are using the same angled measurement. So the math is the same, you can range with the reticle and dial with the turrets with no formulas to convert MOA to MIL or visa versa.

There are a ton of good reads here about the differences between MIL and MOA. For the most part is has to do with whether your brain works better with 1/4's or 1/10's.

The most important point IMO is to remember that both MIL and MOA are angular measurements and we do a disservice to ourselves when we get all caught up in the math part of it and try to turn angular concepts into linear ones. If you wrap your mind around the concept of using angular measurements both are very easy to use. The math is pretty easy for both as well but guys are typically more comfortable with one or the other.

Re: SWFA SSHD's 5-20x50

thanks for answering that one Scott!

Generally speaking, if your reticle and turrets match, your corrections are easier to make...not a whole lot of thinking to do.

If your shot is 1.5mils low, make the correction to either dial or hold 1.5 mils higher, and theoretically, you should get a hit.

Next is the non-illuminated that is currently residing on my .223. As of today, I have 240 rounds with it. I am reticent to take it off because I like to try racing coyotes with the bullets from this rifle! I will peel it all apart if someone is truly interested.
