OK, I do not have any Mil scopes but this one intrigues me from Crimson Trace on sale at Midway.

Crimson Trace 5-Series Tactical Rifle Scope 34mm Tube 3-18x 50mm 1/10 MIL Adjustments First Focal Zero Stop Side Focus Illuminated MR1-Mil Reticle Matte​


LINK: Crimson Trace

So if I am use to MOA how difficult will be to have a Mil scope as well. I am very detail oriented so I am thinking should not be any issue but like to hear from LRH brain trust on you experience as well. I really don't want to go larger than 50MM objective so that rules out the 3x24 on sale.

Thoughts?

My dad shoots mil and I shoot MOA. In a ffp scope especially, it's not a big deal, your corrective data, whether it be applied ballistics on some device, a dope card you print out, or any other options will give you your holdover/off corrections, just follow your data and your gtg. Transition back and fourth is easy IMHO.

That’s a good scope. I wish the turrets were a little tighter, but overall a nice scope. 140 minutes of elevation travel!

Anybody know why they're blowing the Crimson Trace 5-Series out the door at these prices? They're marked normally at other vendor's sites.

Are they just not selling well?

At first I thought they were getting out of the scope business but it appears they are coming out with a whole new line. Maybe they are addressing some of the shortcomings on this live too.

You won’t have any trouble using MIL as well as MOA. Drop charts are avail in both, just print off the appropriate information for each setup.

Any feedback on the scopes? I just bought a 4-16 to throw on a truck gun. For 299 I fig couldn’t go wrong.

No experience with the scope you list but I have learned this - the only scopes I’ve ever regretted buying were the cheap ones... reliability is the most important feature to have in any scope.
