    Nope. Because it says varmitter its ilegal to shoot a deer using it. It also stops the gun from firing anyway so you're screwed sorry.

    Yes you can use it to hunt deer despite what Toby says.

    Basically this reticle is used to assist you with range estimation.

    Check out this Leupold website start on page 18 explains it nicely.

    No, you could but generally two fine in my opinion at last light/dawn you'll never find the cross hairs on a deer.
    You really need two come for a drive Drew.

    Yeah as Brads said, Varmint rets are quiet fine ( as they are designed for little critters ) and also made to work with flat shooting light / high speed ammo. For bigger beasties something like a Luepy B&C or big game holdover reticle ( most scope manufactures make em now ) will be more user friendly.

    Hold over reticles work well out to 500 odd yards, but you need to put in a little time & shooting practice working out where your POI ( point of impact ) is for each hold over bar / dot to where your rifle is shooting for them to work to full potential.
    Shoot it, root it & then BBQ it !!!
