The ideal of different retilces has been discussed before and one problem with it is  that many of the good ones are patented so you just cant use someone elses design without cost.  Still there are some ideas that may eventually show up if there is sufficent market for them.

So if I have an idea on a reticle I assume that SWFA would at least look at it? J

As much as all of us use our computers for OT maybe a reticle that has the mouses' arrow pointer as the POI? lol

Multiple hold overs = Less knob turning. A good thing in my mind. Big Smile

Its not that many.  The IOR 3-18x FFP has 15 mils of holdover available.  It actually makes them dang nice.

I don't like plain reticles but I dont' like too busy of ones either.  ITs kinda like everything else, everyone has their personal preferance.

4.5-18x42 Tasco SS. Yeah that would be nice. But I guess im difficult. Im just looking for a rifle scope in that power range FFP or not. As long as the mill dots are correct on 14 power. And it must have 1/2 moa click value. Call me stubborn but thats what I want. Im even willing to spent a grand if I get what I want. Leupold makes a 2.5-10x 40 with 1/2moa click value for $1500. A little high for such low power. Then Burris makes a really nice 4-16x50 XTR for $800. And the mill dots are correct on 14 power. But same prob with the click value. 1/4 inch. I have a SS 10x42m on my 260. I like it but wish it had 1/2 moa click value. 14 power would be great too. Any stronger than that you pick up to much haze from the sun. To each his own I guess. Leupold special built a rifle scope for Grey Bull Precision with 1/3 moa click value and the power range is good too. 4-16x50. I just hate the range finder thats on it. Bares? Guess I dont get that. Stay with the regular mill dots. They work just fine. I poped a ground hog at 435 yrds with my 260 and my 10x42 SS M. Yep I even juged the range with my mill dot scope and mill dot master.  Worked just fine on a 9-10" target. Even the wind was good at 6mph.  Leupold or Burris please help!!! You both make this power scope. What's the big deal about just adding 1/2 moa click value for elevation. Howdy

a mildot reticle with a tic in between the  the dots would be all I woudl want.  Its not overly bulky but very useful. You still got the mildot and all the advatanges that come witht that plus a thing mark that just easliy catches a 1.5 mils for holds or measuring. I think sightrons Modified mildots is pretty much what I would want.
