Are you saying two reticles in one scope, or two scopes of the same configuration other than one is FFP and the other SFP?
Folks ain't got a sense of humor no more. They don't laugh they just get sore.

Need to follow the rules. Just hard to determine which set of rules to follow
Now the rules have changed again.

Unsure of a scope that could mechanically have both in the same scope.....Dark Lord care to chime in? 
I imagine saying the later, same configuration but different focal planes.

IIRC IOR had a scope that had both.   I will see if I can find with one.

Such scopes exist.  Shepherd was the first.  Burris has one. S&B has one.

The Zeiss Victory Varipoint had the reticle in FFP and center illuminated dot in SFP. I have one in 1.5-6X42. I like it a lot because I can keep the reticle subtension constant on the target while still maintaining a very fine dot at point of aim.

the Quigley guy, Randy, said he was the only optical engineer that ever figured out how to do both focal plane reticles in the same scope. said a few things that had me reaching for the flag to run up the bullsh*t pole. didn't agree with some of his long range shooting theories which i know a little about, but wasn't going to argue about optics which i don't even know enough to be dangerous. he said his glass was better than Swarovskis best...

Tell us how you really feel guys!Smile

They usually auction off a Quigley at my local NRA banquet.  I always have to laugh when they tell about before the bidding starts.  By the way they talk you'd think it would go out to the field and kill game while you stayed home.  I'm always amazed how much some unknowing bidder pays for it.
