    Any opinions out there for preferred reticles, such as duplex or German # 4, for dangerous game scopes?

    Can't decide which one for Leupold VX 3, 1.5 x 5

    I really like the German # 4! But can also shoot the traditional duplex.

    German #4. Closest thing they have to the Nightforce NP-1 (which happens to be my favorite reticle)
