I got to see my first FFP scope in person the other day at the gun counter at Sportsmans Warehouse. It was a 6 X 24 Viper PST. When I first looked through the scope I could barely see the reticle and when I zoomed up the power it got fat. I was looking for an SFP scope so handed it back to the guy at the counter. In thinking about it later I got to wondering why a long range hunter would buy such a scope but I know there are guys on this site that use them. So forgive the dumb question but why do you use them? I know that the value of the reticle tick marks stay the same with zoom to make holdover and range estimation less complicated than with an SFP scope however that can’t begin to compete with a laser range finder. And dialing up is never going to be less accurate than a holdover using a reticle. And even worse, it looks to me like the fat crosshair at high power could hide a small target at long range. On top of that, the FFP version of that scope costs $200 more than the SFP version. So I have not been able to come up with an answer to my own question. Why do some hunters use these? Thanks in advance for educating me.
