    If you had two choices which scope would you pick and why?

    Either a 4-14x44mm FFP or a 5-25x50mm FFP?

    Since the reticule enlarges as the power increases but stays the same size in proportion to the target does this bother you? I heard someone say that with a FFP it is like looking down a tunnel. What does that mean? I've never looked through a FFP.

    Would be used mostly for long range hunting and some target shooting to a max of 600 yards with a 6mm Norma BR.

    For my old eyes and my style of hunting and shooting, I'd go with ...

    4-14x44mm FFP for up to 500 yards

    and

    5-25x50mm FFP for 500 yards and up.

    What distance do you consider long range?

    I'm sure others will chime in, esp on your FFP query.

    Good luck and happy safe shooting/hunting.
