As  I have  mentioned before I am going to buy a new scope, probably a Kahles CL 3-9X42.  I am having a hard time deciding whether I should buy one with the Multi Zero option. Right now my thinking is, it's just another thing that can break, it's heavier and will I ever actually use it anyway? What say all you Kahles Pros?
Thanks,
Sam

Well, I would say that if you can swing it, it can't hurt.  I have read an article that used one on a 12 ga slug gun.  I happen to have two of them in the 2-7x36 with a 4a reticle.  Unfortunately, I can't offer my two cents on how well it works as they are on rifles that I am developing loads for and just recently started mounting them.  I will definitely be chiming in once I have some experience with them...

SamC -

I agree with you, no real need for it if the primary use is hunting with shots inside of 300 yards +/-, depending on the game animal.  Now, if you are into long-range shooting for varmints and things like that, then it becomes a different story.

I think it's a nice feature, if you have a use for it.  However, it sounds like you kinda answered your own question.  If you don't plan to use the same rifle with widely varying loads for different species, or you don't plan to do a lot of long range shooting, then I wouldn't personally spend the extra money for it.  I can envision a situation where you might forget that the last time you shot the rifle, you had the turret set for 500 yds and forgot to move it back to your shortest distance zero, potentially causing you to miss a huge buck that steps out at 100 yds.  For a big game hunting scope where in the excitement of the moment, I might not have the presence of mind to adjust dials prior to a shot, I prefer to keep it simple.
 
So, I guess the important question to consider is what kind of rifle is this scope going on, and what is the intended use?
