there's only two places on our property that even offer shots over 200 yds. the longest shot i've ever taken on a deer was 125-130 yds and i've made kills as close as 50 yds. so while not specifically related to the 450 i've never adjusted a scope turret while hunting for deer. Point, squeeze, game over.
personally i'm NOT a fan of mildots. their size precludes the type of accuracy i'm used to being able to squeeze out of my crosshairs.
most folks will say "dial for elevation, hold for wind". i have recently taken a shine to the 'varmint' type reticles though, and if i needed a in-field solution that would be my go to. they're fun on the bench to not have to click for making quick adjustments between known distance targets when i'm out shooting with my buddies. i dont shoot it far enough to utilized the dots (i'm just not that good off-hand!
i have a vx1 with the leupold LR reticle and the dots are smaller than a typical "mil" dot so its easier, but i'm still not a huge fan. i put this on my 204 originally. these days i've got it on my 16" 223 upper that i'm using to train myself to be a better off hand shooter since its only a 3-9x40.
i'm a fan of the vortex dead hold "bdc" reticle . its not too busy to be distracting and once you calculate your holds it should allow for respectable accuracy
the leupold varmint hunters reticle is kind of the same idea, except the cross hashes are a bit wider. i've not had the pleasure of shooting behind one of these, but looking through them at the store gives me the same "not overly busy" feel as the vortex bdc above
i cant get myself past the "holes" in the nikon BDC 600 reticle. this is what i mean by TOO busy.
and their Coyote "special" sure is special. LIke "special Ed" special. to me this is probably one of the WORST bdc type reticles on the shelves today.
