    I see that each of these scopes come in MOA reticles which I think I could get very used to but my question is why does the 2.5-10x44 go up to 30 MOA on the reticle and the 4-16x50 only to 20 MOA on the reticle? To get out to longer ranges the 30 MOA reticle on the 2.5-10 would obviously be the smarter choice right? Does anyone have any mounted pics of either 1 of these particular scopes? and if so how do you like them?

    The diagrams that are on their website show all of the reticles hash marks at 30. The 2.5-10 is marked to 30 but the higher power scopes are marked to 20 with the hash marks continuing to 30.

    the higher the magnification, the less field of view you have. the less field of view means less moa available.
