I just order a 2.5x10 x56 with green triangle and post. This is the first time in my life I havent had cross hairs. How does it work at a stationairy target and 300 plus yards, and does it really make the difference on a moving target. I have had a hard time holding both eyes open while shooting for forever. Any thoughts,comments or tips are appreciated

I don't think you're expected to use a rifle scope that way. AFAIK, the "Bindon Aiming Concept" has always been associated with the ACOG. I also think that 2.5X is about the highest magnification that I would want to try it with. 10X is out of the question.

On the other hand, I don't really worry about the Bindon stuff. My eyes are cross-dominant.

The BAC is kind of funky to get used to.  The scope you have will work with according to trijicon.  Now with that scope on say 2.5x to 5x for snap shooting, you don't really shoot two eyes open per say.  At least thats not how I used the ACOG in the Army.  You have the rifle shouldered in say a low ready then as you come up on target you close your off eye and you dominate eye will be almost center mass.  Its kind of like playing with Binos - your tricking your brain sort of.  For a quick snap shot on a moving target it works.  If your settling in for a longer shot its not really applicable.  When I do it I don't close my left eye per say but kind of squint with and your focus shifts to your right and bingo ... your pretty close to center mass.   The ACOGs I used it on were 4x and it worked fine.  I bet you could get it to work on 5x with some practice.

So a deer broad side sitting still at 200 or 250 will be tough to kill? I definately will keep it on 2.5 for moving target. I had a hard time with my old leupold 4.5 x16 while moving so 2.5 should be alot better but the triangle is a whole new concept for me.

A deer standing still and broadside at 200 won't be any harder to kill.  The BAC is for getting your crosshairs on target fast, like a 75 yard mover, swing up, shift to dominant eye, lead target, shoot.
 
A little range work with it and you will be off and running

I hit a caribou 2 out of 5 quick shots a few weeks back at a little over 600 yards with my 6.8 & 4X32 acog red dot/ghost ring.  He went down and the ravens were circlin him before I even got to him.  That bull is only thing I've killed with this stag 15 but I don't think I'd have any probs dropping a deer at 200 yards with this acog.  I wasn't using the B&C lines, just raised up over his back.  Actually, all 5 shots were off in about 10-15 seconds and he didn't have time to go anywhere.

I'm picking up an armalite 338 federal when it comes in nx month and either getting another acog, an eotec, or aimpoint; and the gun will be for roadhunting & off 4 wheeler; close stuff that moves right at dark.

I have an old aimpoint on a folding stock mini-14, have had it since early 90's but never hunted much with it. I'm real impressed with the acog and luv the ghost ring.  I only have one AR with leupold crosshairs and it would now be awful hard to put a traditional scope on any new AR I get.
