I need a couple of suggestions for reticle scopes for prices less than $1000 and I need a couple of suggestions for scopes more than $1000. Reasons for the recommendations?
It is FFP.rbjem said:Is the hawk first focal plane? If it isn't wouldnt it be useless at anything but 12x?
It looks busy until you try it.jamesb74 said:Wow that is a busy reticle. Pretty cool though. I like the 1x4 they have listed.

Your right they do look pretty cool and I remember what John had to say about them. I really like the look of the Talon and after reading moe on their website. I will seriously be considering one of these for the future. After reading about the reticle's they don't look that busy anymore.paulosantos said:I've had the 1x4 talon and the Hawk.
This was one of my favorite scopes I ever had and regret selling it. I sold because they were supposed to be coming out with a new model but they cancelled it so I got something else. The reticle is non caliber specific which is great for any caliber.
I tried the hawk for a couple of weeks just to try it out. I really like it but on the lower magnification, it was hard to use because the reticle was small.
The hours reticles appear busy, but if you use it right and look through the reticle to the target, you won't notice it. If you sit there and stare at the reticle it will look busy. If you learn how to use them properly, you will like them. Just like anything else, you just need to train with it.
The issue I am finding is that if you try to buy a less expensive scope...under $250..It's HARD to find one with repeatable elevation and windage adjustments that would allow you to use come ups to dial in your target. Or...the cheaper scopes only have mushy imprecise .5 mil clicks which make fine adjustment impossible.You are nearly forced to use "holds" be it a BDC, Mil Dot or duplex reticle.J.Boyette said:Do you hold or dial? Do you know what you do?
