Decided to get a Leupold vx-6 2-12x42 but now I need to figure out what reticle to get for it.

Duplex or #4 reticle. The #4 could be nice for fast target acquisition and are really popular here in the EU, but the plex doesn't cover so much of the target.

#4 would be better for low-light but that doesen't really matter when I got illumination..

Hmm would you recommend one over the other?

I was pretty sure to get the #4 until I saw this picture of the Plex, which seems pretty nice.
