I am having trouble telling much about the XR-BDC reticle from the photo of it.  I like the reticle, but can't tell if it would be usable for hunting in the woods.  I need a reticle for hunting AND target shooting.  And I need a reticle with multiple aiming points.
 
This reticle looks great, but is it visible enough for a hunting scope in the woods ?
 
Thanks
 
PS:  Most Mil Dots are ALWAYS too big and bulky for the target and hunting I do at airgun distances of under 125 yds.

I had a XR-BDC & thought it was to thin for my old eyes but had no problem with the standard BDC ret.I have 2 of them both Z5's & I like them alot.Everyones eyes see a little different,if I was you I would try to look through the XR-BDC before I purchased.

Aw damn ... I was afraid of that.  The standard BDC looks to be too bulky for what I do.

Minox seems to be making some VERY cool scopes ... and with ILya saying they are on par with the Conquest line, they have to be good .... But what in heck are they thinking only offering 3 reticles ???
 
This is making what would normally be a VERY simple buying decision on my part, VERY difficult.

You didn't mention a price you could live with so I'm going to say ,look at the Swaro deals that are going on at SWFA,great scopes & great glass,also they have more ret's than Minox.
