I like a 2 minute LEE dot, most of my recreational shooting/sighting in is done @ 100yds. I use a 2" flourescent orange dot on my targets. Place the scopes dot so no orange is seen in the sight picture and you're dead on target.

My longer range reticle preferences are prefaced with my requirement that it work well for hunting at shorter range, in broken/busy backgrounds, and low light as well. If it was ONLY long range there are a lot more I could live with...that premise stated:

1. Tangent Theta's LRH Milrad
2. SWFA's milquad
3. S&B's P3/mildot
4. NF's F1 MLR2.0

Based just on what I've seen from posted pictures and studying sub-tensions/layout, the THLR reticle would be an all around reticle. ...again, that's without the experience of using it.

My favorite reticle is a #4.

2nd place is a plex.

Hadn't seen that version. I think I prefer the basic WindPlex as it has 1 MOA tics on the horizontal vs. 2 MOA on the LR version. For dialing for elevation and holding for wind I don't think you can beat the basic WINDPLEX

But I haven't tried the WindPlex LR version you linked.

I've had little experience with most of the reticles others have posted - that said, I really do like the MQ reticle in my SWFA 6X and 3X9 MQ.

With it's uncluttered view, I scarcely even notice the hash marks until I actually need/want to use them.

All my hunting rifles have Leupold B&C reticles. Fast and easy. Dead hold point at multiple yardage without taking your eye out of the scope. Only downside is usually have to be on max power to be correct moa. They work for me

My hunting rifles are Duplex SFPs but I'm looking at building a long range target rifle that would have a first focal plane so considering other reticles that work best with FFP.

Wish someone offered the old NF IHR reticle.

Not a whole lot of experience with it, but loved it when used.

I think the THLR reticle in the minox zp5 5-25x56 might be the perfect reticle. Hefty price tag though

Pretty much hunting rifles, duplex with fine hairs center. Nothing else, I can do my own hold over and wind adjustments.
Getting older I’m looking to try out the above with the small illuminated dot center.

I second your choice. All my NF 5-20x56 scopes have the MOAR
[Linked Image from i.imgur.com]

However, the MOAR is different on various rifle scopes for some reason. I don't like that they change them. Like Jeff said, too thin on some scopes. Perfect on the 5-20x56 SHV. I even prefer it over the MOAR-T on my ATACR. If you ask me though, I much prefer to have a dependable scope that weighs a little more, than pay for something that is going to fail you in the field or even at the range. There's a reason they are a little heavier: They are made with better internals.

Tangent Theta's LRH Milrad appears to me to be an excellent long range hunting reticle, although I have never looked through one let alone hunted with one. I don't see me ever paying what it takes to own one.

I'm very fond of the reticle and it's well designed for hunting. Here's a few pic's that I took a while back and posted here.

For reference the cow is 125 yards.

JCMCUBIC,

Thanks for the pictures of the Theta's LRH Milrad reticle. I like it a lot. Reminds me of a S&B P3 Mildot I had in a Precision Hunter 3-12x42 but with those 1/2 mil ticks providing a little more precision.
