I've got a 3-12x50IL PA PM2, p3 reticule on my stalking rifle at the moment which I like a lot.
I had hoped to acquire another PM2 in the same format to replace the scope I have on my AR (mainly used for civillian service rifle and a few charlies) is a Nikon M223 which I bought from the USA last year and just haven't got on with (you get what you pay for etc etc).
Haven't been able to find a used PM2 with the right reticule for sensible money and it got me thinking that perhaps I should switch the scope of my deer rifle for something else and put the PM2 on the AR.
Z6 2.5-15x56 looks good bet. FOV, twilight factor and exit diameter are all good. Glass on the PM2 is great, this will be at least as good with the advantage of a 56mm OBj.
I probably wont bother with ballistic turrets as eal my shooting is <150 yards.
The question in my mind is whether the illuminated version is worthwhile. My PM2 is illuminated. I couldn't honestly event tell you whether the battery is any good though - I never use it. That should answer the question for me I guess. On the other hand, from a resale point of view I wonder whether it illuminated reticules are considered important (will I ever sell it? who knows, just worth throwing into the mix I think).
Reticule will be a 4A-I or 4A-300-I (I like the clearer site picture on the latter I think)
Anyone bought an 'I' and regretted it? how about the other way around?
