That's the key. I think people think different things equal long range. I often use a reticle hold to >1000yrds but I don't like to because wind holds are not as precise off of the main x-axis of the crosshair and I'm usually shooting for points instead of giggles. For up to 600yrds though, no point in spending the extra hundreds on a scope with great turrets. The turrets don't need to be fantastic to dial a zero (but it helps) if the reticle is accurate which it seems to be. That PA 4-14x is a FFP optic isn't it?
