My 280ai is about to be finished and i'm looking for a new scope. I will be using it for long range hunting and local 100-300 yard competitions. I'm looking for a 30mm scope with a fine reticle, up to 30 power but no lower than 25 power. I have around $1000 to spend on the optics. I was pretty interested in the Athlon Ares BTR 4.5-27x50FFP but I looked through a friends and the reticle is too big for my liking. The glass was very clear, but at 300yds the reticle was just too big for targets. I'm wondering if I should just stick with SFP rather than FFP because of the reticle. I'm thinking the Vortex PST Gen 2 5-25x50SFP would be great for my application. Any input would be great.
