Just got one of these with the P4FL reticle. Anyone know where I can get a diagram that describes each of the lines and what they measure? The ones at the bottom are the ones that I am referring to.
Thanks in advance.
Thank you both for your reply. Maybe I can ask for some more advice. I am about to have 2 RPR's. One in 6.5 and 1 in 5.56. I am keeping the 5.56 in fl for training/fun shooting and taking the 6.5 to my daughters house in Colorado and leaving it there. I am going to use the 6.5 when I am out there to fun shoot with my son at long range. I am sure he will use it from time to time between visits.
Here is my question. Right now, I have a Leupold V3LRP 8.5-25 on the 6.5 and the S&B 5-25 is (I think) awaiting installation on the new 5.56 when it arrives. My thought is that I should put it on the rifle I will shoot the most. Does this sound like it is the way to go or should I swap the scopes? As the S&B is a helluva expensive scope, I thought using it more than a few weeks a year made sense. Your thoughts??
I would definitely put the S&B on the rifle you will shoot the most. I have one with Gen2 XR reticle and love it. You could always just take the S&B with you to Colorado and use it on the 6.5. Would just take a quick sight in.
I would put the S&B on the 6.5, but thats me. I would also not hesitate to swap between the rifles. if you need more help on the reticle i would reach out to @Lowlight i know he likes the P4 Fine reticle.
I would throw the S&B in a Spuhr Mount and take it with me. Swap it between rifles. S&B is at the very top tier in glass/scope quality. Why not use it always, and get maximum return on your investment? It won’t take more than 10minutes to adjust zero. Once you do, make a note in your dope book, and “whammy”, your gtg .
As the owner of 2 S&B scopes, I say USE EM. Just my 2 cents.
Thanks Vegas. Believe it or not, I really don't mind the Leupold. I learned to shoot with it. It seems balls on accurate. The main difference between the two to me from limited comparison is the amount of light that gets through the S&B. It's really a lot brighter. I really like both reticles as they are quite similar. The other difference seems to be the clarity and (not sure what to call it) the ability to sit my eye on the cheekpiece a lot easier with the S&B. Seems to have more "focus room".
