To the OP…first Joe

I have tremendous respect for Joe Rhea's scope reviews and have viewed many of them a bunch of times.  They were very helpful to me when I was on a loooooong research escapade for buying a new scope for my DS Regal XL,  My wife would say, "what are you doing in the middle of the nigh looking at your iPAD?"  She didn't know I was looking at Joe's numerous scope reviews.  In fact, the Leupold 3-12X40 EFR was rated #1 in one of his You Tube reviews.  Different than yours I know, but it was a Leupold.

Seriously, I may have misspoken and been a bit too fast on my comment on the mil dots being a bit too big with the Leupold you are buying.  I have to say that all of those hash marks in fact may be more of a distraction than having fewer reference points, esp. when shooting small game.  On my duplex reticle, that is not an issue, but I would not trust it for long hold overs greater than 35 or 40 yards either. 

In any case, you have a couple diverse view points.  As Joe said, that's part of the fun in checking stuff out and seeing for yourself.
