I have had one, but sold it because of a upgrade. Mighthy fine scopes for sure.

The MH reticle has got half mil hashes, so twice as many as a regular mil dot reticle.

But because it is a second focal plane scope calibrated at 24x, it all depends on which power you are going to use it.

At 12x, a half mil hash will represent a mil

At 48x, a half mil hash wil represent a quarter mil, so 4 hashes will represent a mil at that power.

I only use mil/mil scopes these days, it makes life a lot easier. 

10-50x60LRIRMH is THE way to go for the big S3?

Good luck with your choice, you can't go wrong with a S3 IMO.

P.s. the LRIRMH and FT use the same reticle, the silhouette reticle is also the same, but the target dot is 3cm/100m i.s.o. 7.3mm/100m at 24x.

Attached is a handy sheet to see the spacing of all powers of the S3 mil hash reticle.
