You most certainly are entitled to your opinion. But the above quote was what I called you on. It is wrong. It implies that you can't shoot well farther than "4 or 500 yards" with a MOA scope. So maybe you can re-read it and see why when I hunt with SFP / MOA only, and we take game with one shot kills regularly past 1000 yards, practice past 2000 yards often, that I disagree with what you posted. It is wrong and could confuse a beginner that may not know the difference yet.
I hear a lot that people use the FFP's so the sub-tensions are the same on all powers. So they can turn them down and still use the reticle for holdover. Well the fact is that many,
especially lower cost FFp's when you turn the reticle down past 1/2 power you cant even see the tiny reticle. And if you can, buy the time you figure out what tiny line to use, this fleeing fast shot you need to take, is long gone or you missed from using the wrong line.
Every scope has it's place. But if you come on here, a site fulled with long range and ELR shooter saying you should not use a MOA SFP for shots past 500,,,, well that is just ridiculous. For crying out loud, the most popular long range scope you can get is a Nightforce 5.5~22 NXS in SFP / MOA.
Nobody is picking on you. Just keeping things in perspective.
