    Meopta MeoPro 3-9x42 BDC thoughts?

    Looking for a scope for the 308 bush pig to enable more calculated longer range shots (max 350yrds). The old 308 has a trajectory best described as a rainbow once the distance starts getting out there... So I have come to the conclusion a holdover reticle is probably the best solution rather than dialing (close range shots are the norm with this rifle).

    Come across the Meopta MeoPro 3-9x42 BDC but don't know anything about them.. Any thoughts? The reticle looks ideal.

    Would be replacing a Kahles KX which I love but has a duplex reticle which makes any holdover a bit of guess work. However the optics are obviously great. Would the Meopta be a big downgrade?

    Any other recommendations I should be looking at?

    Iv got a Meopta Meopro on my 85.
    Love it.
    Its endured 8 days of hellish weather in gnarly South Westland mountain scrub and swamp country. Didn't miss a beat.
    Mates got a Kahles on his 75 (same trip). His scope was a little better at dragging in light in the gloom.
    His cost $4000 mine was $1400.
    I shot 5 deer, he shot none.

    Im considering putting something special on as a replacement, but only out of stupidity as its a bloody good scope for the money. And will likely be replaced by something that costs 3-4 times as much.
