Okay, after lots of good feedback here and elsewhere, I'm going to pull the trigger on a Kahles CL 3-9x42 for my 7-08.  I need to decide between a 4A without multizero (which I'm leaning towards), or the plex with multizero for $50 more.  Is the MultiZero feature reliable, and is it worthwhile for someone whose shots are routinely 250 yds or less, typically between 100-200, with a longest shot ever of 248 yds over 30 years?  Or would the Multizero make it easy to extend my range to a self-imposed maximum of 400yds?  So, 4A or Plex w/multizereo?

The MultiZero feature is a neat and well-thought-out design, but sounds like a take it or leave it thing for the type of shooting you are thinking of, even out to 400.

You would see much more benefit with the 4A extending your shooting time than the Multi-Zero will give you within a 250 yard range. Set your zero at 200 and you should be good for any shot in that range.

I have a two kahles Cls, one /w/ multizero one without.  I find the multzero to be to complicated for my taste.  I'm sure if you take the time to learn it, it will be just fine.  Either way the glass in the kahles scopes is fantastic.

I think either one will be fine.  Even if you get the MZ and dont' like it, just don't use that feature.  Do a 200yd zero and your set.

I'd get the 4a reticle without MZ.

I have all 4a reticles on my CLs.  Of those, 3 are MultiZero.  I like the MZ, but haven't had the chance to use it yet in the field on game.  I do like the 4a better than the plex.  If you'll be shooting a bit and can learn your particular bullet's trajectories, go with the 4a.  if you'll be using different weight bullets, that's where the MZ comes in handy.  You can set up different points for different weight bullets and then all you have to do is turn the dial.

My 0.02...

Think I'm going with the 4a.  For the gun it's going on and the type of shooting/hunting I do, that's probably the best for my use.  Once I find a good load/bullet combo that works well, I'll be set.  Appreciate the input.
