Good information here.

I have several FFP scopes and like them. The reticle size change is a little weird. Mostly I have mine zoomed enough that the size is fine.

I've been looking at exactly these two scopes for my new AR blasters.

Would be very interested to hear your thoughts, price paid, and supplier.

However, I'm also looking towards more advanced reticles... as I suspect that mil-dot FFP will be less useful @1x

The 1st reticle is explained here https://www.ebay.com/itm/SKWoptics-1-25-5x26A-Tactical-riflescopes-Hunting-for-3gun-CQB-RIFLESCOPE/324011386298

Oh that is nice to hear.

I'd found this on AMZ, but wasn't trying to spend quuuuuite that much... but still after a 30mm+ tube ideally... https://www.amazon.com/Sniper-1-6X28-Optics-Illuminated-Reticle/dp/B082RC7G3H

He lists it at $218 (TPO site), $187 (AMZ) I wonder $? with the hit-em-up discount? 🙂

VT1 6X24FPL 09 min 540x

@gratewhitehuntr. The 1 I have is the vt 1×6-24. I like the Cross reticle with Mildots better than Christmas tree reticle or the half moon reticle like this You Are showing me. The Vortex strike eagle had a half moon upper like this one and I did not like that 1 at all. The vt 1x6-24 has a better reticle and is also 30mm tube. Plus they throw in a free long throw lever for the magnification and it also has real metal screw in flip cap covers that are great and actually screw in over the lenses on both sides of the scope. Much better than the cheap slide over flip caps most other manufacturers use. I fuckin love this scope it is awesome with some real neat features and locking turrets You just push down or pull up to lock or unlock
