Thanks for all the input!

 

Tommyb – thanks for the first hand experience.  I really like my 6.5-20 as well but to be honest if I kept it I’d change the reticle.  Of course, by the time I spend $200 to change the reticle I could have likely sold what I have and ordered a new custom one.  Ah, decisions!

Joe – that’s a good one “Too many references!” ?.  I think my mind works similarly in that too much going on in my reticle could be a distraction.  I think the mil-dot might be my best choice but I’m concerned about how large the dots might appear.  I do wish Leupold offered “hollow” mil dots like Nightforce does.

PS – I’ve watched many of your videos and always found them to be very professional and informative.  So, from the peanut gallery, thanks!

Stoti– thanks for the input and specifically opinion on the mil dot.  I keep coming back to it and really like that I can get it in a FFP.

 

All in all, I’m leaning towards a FFP illuminated mil-dot I think since it will keep things simple (both to my eye and in my mind) + I’ve always wanted to try FFP. 

I’ll definitely post back once I  1) make a decision & 2) get the scope mounted and tested.
