The main lesson here is that it is hard to go wrong with a plain duplex reticle. Just sight in two or three inches high at 100 yards and, assuming you’re shooting something with .30-06 or .308 type ballistics, you’ll be good out to 300-plus yards. At anything approaching reasonable hunting distances you’ll never want to shoot when your crosshairs are not on the animal. If this sounds simple, that’s the point. The fewer things to think about when making a decision on whether to shoot, the better.
