    I am going to be replacing the cross hairs in my Leupold 3 x 9 x 50mm VXII. Currently I have a heavy duplex reticle. This reticle is fine for big game hunting, but I am finding that the crosshairs are just to heavy to shoot at the range.
    I am also going to be buying a Zeiss Conquest 4.5 x 14 x 50mm.
    In your guy's experience what reticles do you like/dislike the best. At this moment in time I would not consider myself a long range hunter/shooter.

    See Darell website from Holland Shooting - he just got for Leupold a special new reticles in MOA and Mils.

    I like the MP-8 reticle and also I used Mils for hunting. Are more easy for quick shoots/wind corection than a plain reticle.

    I like the Leupold's TMR and Boone and Crockett, IOR's MP8, USO's PC-MOA. These are all ones that I own or have used. I hear good things about the NF RR-2 and Zeiss Rapid Z reticles too.
