Hey all, I have recieved a lot of help from everyone on this forum and I really appreciate it. I have chosen my scope as a vortex viper 6-20x44. My budget is low so this will be a great starter scope. I believe the optical quality of these scopes compares to a conquest. Anyways, I need help choosing a reticle. My two choices are the mil dot or the dead hold BDC reticle. I am little worried the mil dot reticle is too busy?? I really dont plan on using the mil dots for elevation as I will install a custom turet or just use the target turets. I do think the mil dots would be nice for windage though. I plan on learning the mildot and using them for windage on long shots. Would I be better off going with the dead hold bdc reticle? Please give me your input. I have never used a mil do scope.
