Hello,
I just joined and this is my first post.  I have my scope selection narrowed down to two.  First, the rifle;  Savage 10FP heavy 20" .308.  I have the scope narrowed down to the Zeiss 6.5-20x50 with reticle 43 (mil-dot) and the Zeiss 6.5-20x50 with Rapid Z1000.  This will be for punching holes in paper.  Thanks for any help.

If it is for paper I would go with the #43 between these 2 scopes. It will be more accurate to dial your dope than to shoot the BCD reticle. The Z1000 is more for fast follow up hunting shots. Once you get your ammunition dialed in you can use the Mil-dots for hold off in the same manor.

Thanks for the recomendation.  If the reticle 43 is zeroed at 100, what is the difference in elevation/range for each subsequent dot?
