Do yourself a favor and go with a Nikon rangefinder and forget sheperd scopes the reticle idea is good but the scopes are not as good as other scopes in their price range.  A Zeiss Conquest with rapid Z reticle will be a far better scope for you.  I suggest you look at several scopes before deciding what you want.  Bushnell  4200,  Leupold  VX3 & FX3 and Zeiss Conquest.  I know you would want the Zeiss.  If illumination would help look at Trijicon Accupoint also.  Almost eveyone I know uses either Nikon or Lelica rangefinders.

I also like having a seperate range finder and a scope,  If you bow hunt, golf or use other scopes its great having a stand alone range finder.  Their also usefull for just practicing range estimation.

Concur about the Shepherd.
Haven't been mentioned much around here lately, but they aren't worth the trouble, IMO.
