The Burris FullField II scopes with a Ballistic Plex have drop marked reticles too.

The Pulsar Digisight D550 has reticles that have drop markings and the reticle can be moved electronically as well. Is a different approach to NV. Seems to be good to 200+ yards. Not as good as Gen III+ but a rationally priced and useful alternative.

The combination of suppressor and NV is ideal for the night hunting of piggies.

If I find 50 $20 bills, I will trade them for this scope.

Yeah, I don't have one large laying around for that scope.
Although I got to look thru a pre-release model at Buckarama & it was nice.

I went with the Leatherwood 1-4 instead.
At least it has a balistic drop reticle.
When my upper comes in from DCA, I'll have a chance to try it.

I will be hog hunting in brush area and do not anticipate more than 200 yards. does anyone have any thoughts on how the LEUPOLD VX-R 1.25-4X20 would do with the 300? or the Burris 1-4x24 Fullfield TAC30? initially i will be using a 16" carbine supersonic but once the paperwork goes through, I will be using subs with a suppressor on an sbr. thanks
