Maybe this has been asked before so please be patient. I am anticipating my 308 Howa M1500 heavy barrel 24" in a few months and need to finalise scope choice. Rifle will be used for hunting (0 - 400m approx) and target shooting (to about 300m officially but will shoot further for fun). This is what I want to do and need advice on: I want to zero at ONE range (say 100m), then (for hunting and target shooting), range find using rangefinder, then consult range drop card (in MIL), use scopes MIL reticle to adjust holdover (let's ignore windage for now), hold over using reticle and shoot. I do not want to fiddle with adjustments/dialing in/out etc as after a few shots at varying distances (as hunting is) I will be so confused (or hire someone to keep track of all the up/down changes) that I will have to spend half the day re-zeroing my rifle after every session. Call me stupid or lazy, take your pick. So my question is: If I want to do the above, do I need a FFP or SFP scope? ie will the (as the majority of scopes are SFP) SFP reticle change the MIL distance as I change magnification? (assume I will in the hunting field as prey is closer or further) So if I shoot at 10x and 100m (zero) - all fine. Next shot is at 200m and I change mag to 16x, now I need to hold over (say) 1 MIL. Is the SFP scope's reticle still 1 MIL at the 1 MIL point (assume a multiple MIL reticle like the enhanced mil dot marked in half MIL increments) at a different mag or is 1 MIL sitting somewhere else on the reticle than where it should be? I know a FFP scope's gradients stay the same for all maginfications so this should be fine for the above? (Did I just anwer my own question?) Thinking of the Falcon Menace 5-25x50 for FFP or MTC Viper 6-24x56 (you do not get this scope in the US). Thanks for sorting me out.
