I've lost count. But it's interesting...


I really like the FireDot Duplex in the VXR 3-9x40. Perfect for a plex reticle. Heavy Duplex too. I don't understand why, regarding the Wide?


Critical thinking not needed.

There are several very useful reticles.

I can’t think of any advantage the Leupold wide duplex offers. Can’t use it for holdover, can’t see it at last light (not like Heavy Duplex).

Maybe acceptable for dialing/long range. Except Leupold scopes are notorious, and have been for pretty much forever, as terrible dialing scopes. Have you ever tried to sight in a 6x36? You kind of have to guess how many clicks it will take to move an inch. Sometimes 4. Sometimes 1. Sometimes 16. They do hold zero pretty well. Which is why the LRD is a good reticle.

I use both 6x36 and 6x42 scopes regularly. I have none with the wide duplex.

I don't use the reticle for ranging as most of my shots are 250 yards or less. I am able to see the crosshairs right up until about dark and have not felt handicapped by it to this point. I guess the reason I like it is because it is one of two reticles used in the Redfield Revolution scopes and I don't like the accurange reticle. I really like the Redfield as light, compact set and forget scope.


Always remember that you are unique, just like everyone else.
