First Post here.  I'm a 3 Gun shooter and I'm looking for some optic wisdom.

I'm looking for a new optic for my 3 Gun rifle (AR in 5.56) and I really like the Steiner 1-4x24.

It's been discontinued and replaced by a 1-5 model.   The 1-4 is at discount pricing at a number of retailers.  

I'm really confused on the reticle offerings.

For this optic, I've found the following options:

1) Rapid Dot 5.56

2) Rapid Dot 7.62

3) DM1 Reticle (no picture found . . . there is one listed in the Sample List)

4) Rapid Dot 308  (it is listed as a separate product code from the 7.62 model)

What gives here?   The 5.56 and the 7.62 have the exact same milirad measurements.  Are they the same reticle?  What is the DM1?  And the Rapid Dot 308?

(Also, please don't try to sell me on a Vortex, Swaro, etc....   I'm really settled on this scope as it has the features and pricing that fit me.  I just can't figure out the difference in the available reticles.)

One shop has the "Rapid Dot 308" model super discounted.   If the milirads are the same, I may just buying and write up a dope sheet for my 5.56 load.
