I should have checked that out before i bought it, but the price was right. I've been trying to sell it but cant hardly give it away.

    I take it you dont like the TMR reticle. Any specific reason why. I just put one on my FN TSR 223.
    I like the TMR reticle ok, but my clicks are 1/4 minute.
    When shooting prarie dogs, if I miss the first shot I can kinda tell using the reticle how far off the miss was and dial the correction in MOA without having to convert it from Mils (seen in the scope) to Minutes needed (on the dial).

    I also like Moa reticles better because my mind works very well with minutes, especially shooters minute or IPHY. I used mil scopes in the early 90's, but ever since buying my first NightForce scope with moa reticle in mid 90's, I've prefered moa ever since.

    I just got my MK4 TMR, so it's only been used for load devolopment. I bought my second 223 for P Dogging next year. What i really like about the TMR reticle is that the cross hairs don't connect. The FN with the 20" barrel only wieghs 8.5 lbs. Nice little throw behind the seat rifle.

    The last video clip (4th one) is where I go back to 900 yards, and then I shoot from 200-600 with just using the reticle (no dialing whatsoever).
    It is also the shortest video clip.

    That's how I like to shoot too usually. I don't care to be dialing knobs when I can use the reticle. Especially when it's 500 and under. Over the last 20 years I've shot alot of coyotes in the 300-500 yd range and never dialed a knob for any of them.

    Thanks for posting this Ernie.
