It's a matter of personal preference, really. My favorite is the German #4 absehen. ( Kahles, Zeiss, Swarovski , S&B) For a tighter budget, I think Bushnell Elite series scopes have this reticle as well as Leupold.
+1. In addition to a reticle with thick outer posts like the #4, #1, etc, I like first focal plane reticles for low light, because as you turn up magnification, the reticle gets thicker and bolder. A well-designed lit reticle is great for low light as well, and if you have a lit reticle, you can get by with a thin reticle so you have the best of both worlds -- thin lines for super precise aiming and very visible aiming point in low light. There are many scopes that have ample light transmission for low light use. The best low light scopes have exit pupils of 5mm and greater at whatever magnification you're using, in addition to good glass and coatings optimized for light transmission in the blue spectrum.
