Please compare the Bushnell Multi-X reticle vs the Mil Dot reticle for varmint/target shooting out to 400-500 yards. Which is better?

i have and use both. The multi-X requires more guessing, where the mil dot can give you more accurate distances.

1 mil = 3.6" or 1 mil = 3.438 Minutes of Angle = 3.6" @ 100 yards.

The calculation is:

Height of target (yards) X 1,000 = Range (yards)
Height of target (mils)

Therefore you can calculate the distance.

I'll probably go with the Multi-X then. Guessing is more fun than math. :)

I have a 4X24 mil dot set up on a 24" barrel AR15.
I need a ballistic card or a calculator to get the right setting.
Being a big fan of technology, my preference is to use a laser rangefinder and set the turret accordingly.
This is even more accurate than trying to guess the height of a coyote or fox and then do the calculations and then decide which mil dot to center on the dog while he is casually ambling away.

I never wanted a Mil Dot reticule until I bought a Bushnell 10X 3200. I see this as the bargain of the century and I have three at the present time. It does work well, I see this as a non issue........Essex
