    i'm reading about FFP VS SFP. i think i'd prefer having the crosshair keeping it's size at any magnification VS a crosshair kind of enlarging at the same rate as the magnification increase. i'm guessing that at higher magnification , the SFP let you fine tune you shot better maybe , because THE dot isn't covering a larger part of the target like a FFP does ,henjce the kind of consensus about trying to keep the magnifying as lowest as possible with a FFP.......of course i'm no expert,i'm learning the ropes of the many different reticles available ,and i try to understand how to choose . i see i'm a long way to go........

    ......as for nightforce, it,s really my 1st choice. however, along my research , i learned that the thing to keep in check is litterally the glass themself; seems like NF don't provide the same exact quality glass from batch to batch.it's been discussed in lenght on sniperhide and sniper central ; while nothing that would cold shower my decision because what really count to me is the exact repeatability,and reliability . however, with the price asked for the one i want, i think that i ow to myself at least giving some thoughts about a slll....as of right now, there's more chances than not i will end up with a NXS 5.5X25X56 illuminated ....

    honestly,if i was 100% set on the reticle i need,the purchase would already be a done deal.


    edit: after looking at the vid couple times, the MOA-H is really growing on me.instead of turning the knobs, you just use the different dots nwich allows you to keep the '''standard''' zero@100 at all time.

    I have nothing bad to say about Nightforce and I am definitely not a brand loyal fanboy.

    Sfp is only true at a certain magnification. So a 24x scope is only 1 MOA per hash mark on 24 power. It is 2 moa at 12x and 4moa ar 6x and 8moa at 3x and a lot 9f math at 5.465x.

    A ffp is true at any magnification. The hash Mark's are always at 1 moa. The downside is your reticle gets smaller and the reticle design is generally thicker so u can see it at the lower magnification.

    FFp is good for shooting multiple shots at different distances and magnification. Sfp is more of an every man's deal.
