Mb, The best thing to do is look down a few tubes, think what you are going to use the scope for and buy which ever one you think will serve your purposes the best. I hunt with a rangefinder so I know how far I am going to shoot which makes using the BDC reticle easy. Does it work ? Over 1,000,000 registered user's can't all be wrong. Is it for everyone, absolutely not. Check one out and see what you think. My longest shot using the BDC reticle and Spot On is a 427 yard one shot stop,not 30 sec. before I harvested a doe at 50 yards. For hunting it is tough to beat.
