Well, after many hours of reading and pondering I decided to go with the SS 10x.  I ordered last week and judging by the tracking number, I should be getting it tomorrow! I'm getting pretty hyped up for that big brown truck to come! So, now that I'm going to have this optic, are their any tips or tricks for using the reticle? Anything I should be careful of? Any must have accessories? Thanks much! Will post more when I get it!

Congrats on a fine purchase.
I'd recommend a Mildot Master and a good set of rings.
Our friends @ SWFA can help with both.

What stick is it going on?

If at first you don't secede...try..try again.

http://www.shooterready.com/ is a good place to learn mil dot use as well as practice.  But CheapTrick has the right idea, Mildot Master is a great item for any mil dot scope user.

I'll be putting it on my Savage 10FCP with the McMillan stock, I also picked up a set of Burris XTR LOW rings to compliment the SS10x. I've been looking at the Mildot Master seems like it would prove to be a valuable accessory.  I am assuming it will help with converting MOA adjustments to work with the Mildot reticle? 

As soon as I get it mounted on there, I'll post of some pics * I know people have prob seen about a million of these, but I'll be a million and one Big Grin* Thanks everybody for all of your knowledge and support!

McMillan makes a damn fine stock, and the 10X will go very well with the setup.

And you've obviously not heard the old adage:  once you seen one set of breasts, you pretty much want to see all the others too.

For gun nuts, the same holds true, but with a very different ending.
