Due to the Leica ER sale I began looking at them at SWFA and noticed their #1 Reticle. I usually like a #4 best but that #1 intrigues me. Does anyone have experience with this (#1) reticle for general use hunting?
Thanks,
Sam

Brady and CFII have some experience with these scopes, I think they'll be able to offer sound advise.

I haven't seen the Leica version of the #1, but I've used post reticles like that before, and I personally like them.  They are usually very bold and therefore easy to see in low light conditions.  Yet, at the same time, you can aim with precision with the very tip of the point of the vertical post.  If I were buying one of these scopes, I would probably opt for the #1 as well for the types of hunting I do.

Thanks guys for the input. Although I've never seen a #1 in person I think I agree with Ted, it looks like it may be the right reticle for my aging eyes. BTW, that Leica ER sale sure looks good doesn't it!
