You can go through the custom shop and get some more choices.  I'd do the wide duplex, because I like the 4a reticule normally.  We have brushy areas and you end up being closer than you think at times.  That favors a more open reticule.  The more open reticule also gives you a better hold over point.

If you are hunting in heavy and mixed cover in poor light, the heavy duplex is nice.
I hunt in areas where there is a large mix of pine and cedar along with hardwoods. When it is near dark it is easier to see this reticle against the dark body of a game animal.
It is also suitable for long range shots on big game.

I was always a standard duplex guy, but I have to agree that I really like the 4a.

I have always also been a standard duplex guy but can see uses for the wide duplex and heavy duplex also.  For hunting in the northeast or northwest, the heavy duplex would be nice.

  Don't think so Ed.  Those eyes would be distracting on a moving target and the purple would get lost in low light situations.  GOOD try though!

Laugh Above

I too would choose the heavy duplex among those 3.  It will be much more visible in low light and dark timber.
