I don't know what the reticule options are, but the one I looked through at the weekend was so fine that I was glad the owner had put IR on it. That was 2nd focal. Guess it depends on what you like and are comfortable with. These days I prefer something bombproof visually. I haven't heard any similar thoughts to mine though from s&b owners...
