I kinda like to shoot ground squirrels at longer ranges and often in a 5~10 MPH wind. I use a SFP scope. My app gives me the windage in inches. A ground squirrel averages about 4 inches in width. At 300 yards with a 5 MPH crosswind wind drift is 4.39 inches. So I just hold 1 squirrel into the wind. I do this cause I like to shoot at lower zoom ranges to spot hits and misses so I can correct if I need to.So what about wind holds?
Can NOT be said any better.SFP vs FFP
No Right or Wrong answer.
Boils down to intended use, personal preference, & scope features, operations, & utilization.
I prefer SFP for my hunting scopes. I prefer the reticle to remain constant in size & only the target/animal size to change with magnification. This provides a familiar & fast sight picture for me throughout the scopes magnification range.
I have developed a system for utilizing SFP subtension adjustments on my 4-32 NX8 with dual scaled reticle & location of the power throw lever for follow up shots that is fast & accurate on the rare occasion I need to.
In conjunction with my rangefinder, I primarily dial for distance & hold for wind, & make corrections either by dialing or holding for correction without changing power setting.
Utilize what works for each individual, the required use & become familiar with the scopes features, & operations.
