What are your thoughts on this? I hunt groundhogs, and I've used mil dots pretty effectively to range my shots from my 223 with 55gr bullets within the range they are commonly used for (350 yds and under) I just bought myself a savage model 12 lrp in .243 to dramatically increase that distance. I posted a topic before, but after a lot of thinking and internet research on different reticle and price options for good optics at a reasonable price for doing what I plan to do, I honestly can't make up my mind. Mil dots are not as easy to do as far as hold over off the top of your head as MOA is, but 3.6" between the dots typically at 10x is what they are. I've been stuck on this because that 3.6" is roughly the size of a groundhogs head, and it has worked out quite well for me. stretch that out to 600 or so, you need 1/2 dots, or a smaller measurement. I've considered just getting a range finder, but one that could range a woodchuck at 500+ yards probably won't come cheap seeing as how they advertise 1000+ yards on reflective targets, 500-600 on deer. I've considered the hawke sidewinder, but it's true at 20x, so I can't up the magnification to shrink the dots in half like I can with a 10x mil dot at longer ranges. I've seen vortex makes the 6-24 HS-T, true at 18x, offered in MOA or MRAD. What do you think guys????
