Thread: illuminated recticle or not

    illuminated recticle or not

    How often would you say it was worth having,have heard some recticles glow too much and a illum dot is best,usually when you lose the crosshairs you usually cant see your target too good anyway, am talking foxes not red stags,advice please, regards swaro

    I've turned on my illum dot the last 4 times I was out... The deer seem to be coming out right at last knockings and it gives me another couple of minutes to get off a safe shot. It's got me my first muntie, and first 2 fallow and a roe doe over 4 weeks, so can't imagine buying a scope without

    I use the illumination on my nxs quite a lot and I think its brilliant, otherwise early morning /evening ithink I would struggle with the fine dot reticle

    If you have a chance take a look through a Trijicon Accupoint - the illumination helped late and early in the day, and with the Trijicon there's no battery since it's a combination of fiber optics and tritium giving the illumination.

    +1 on these... I've shot the 5-20x50 orange mil-dot at range and it's very good. Not cheap though as only one UK source because they are hard to get out of the US with the tritium that is used on the ret.

    I have a Sightron SIIISS LRIRMOA 6-24x50 ready for the target rifle, and it's a great reticule. Not shot it at more than 100 yards, and only on the BSRC range as it was on the .22-250 which is too quick for MOD ranges, but it was very very nice. I only bought the IR as I was going to knock over some munties with it, but not being able to play on the range brought forward the rebuild, so IR is unnecessary and overkill for target work.

    I have a leupold mk4 with lit reticle and personally think its unnecessary. Wouldn't miss it if I didn't have it but seeing as I do have one I do use it rarely.
