Anyone running the horseshoe reticle?  How do you like it?  What magnification do you like for standard type builds? 1.5x, 3x?  Thanks.

Just got the 6.8 variation, red dot with red ghost ring & B&C.  I like the acog, but expected the ghost ring to be bigger I guess.   It will be the ticket for shooting caribou off snowmachine.  Mine is a 4X32.

Shot that 6.8 acog in off my back porch bench yesterday.  Bolted on, was high to the left about 14 inches.  After 4 three shot groups, had 1.5 inch pattern around bullseye.  The ghost ring almost super imposes (touch bigger in size than 8 inch black circle) on those 100 yard small bore targets at 100 yards. I was using one of those green Caldwell tack driver X sand bags and I'm sure will improve with practice. 

Ammo for 6.8 is tough to find in Alaska, waiting on reloading supplies and then will shoot her some more.  I'm happy enough to finally have an acog on one of our AR's.  Should be great when the caribou arrive this fall.
