“pretbek”FFP scopes do not change the relation of the mil dot reticle to the target when you change the magnification. 

So at ANY magnification “2 mil dots down for 85 yards” (for example) is true.

On a SFP scope this would be true at 20x, but if you had dialed down to 10x it is now “1 mil for down for 85 yards”.

So so on a FFP scope you never have to keep track of which magnification you are at, the mil dot relation is always correct. 


Correct.  While pricey, they do make shooting easier!  I have one on my wish list  8)

Here’s a video from Vortex that explains it:  http://www.vortexoptics.com/video/first_vs_second_focal_plane
