Anyone own a scope with this feature? Would like some feedback. Found a deal on a VX-3 2.5-10x50 w/ illuminated B&C. Thanks.

I have had 2 Leupold scopes with illuminated B&C reticles. The merits of illuminated reticles, like most socpe features, depend on the individual and the circumstances.  Assuming you already have determined that some type of an illuminated reticle will be useful to you in your situations, then my experiences suggest that the B&C reticle helps with long distance shots under poor light because the lower cross hairs used for hold over are easy to see.  On the down side, there is more "wire" illuminated with a B&C reticle than with an illuminated duplex or dot.  This additional illumination can "wash out" the target making it harder to see.  Given my shooting abilities, I can take either long shots or shots in poor light.  But I can not shoot acceptably well at long range in poor light.  Hence, for me a reticle with an illuminated dot or illuminated std duplex is better than an illuminated B&C.
