Does anyone have experience with the circle x reticle? I am looking (because it is cost effective) at this scope for my omega ML. I checked one out at a local store a while back and tried to find the darkest item in the store. At approx. 35 yards I looked at some dark clothing and the x in the circle completely disappeared. The circle was visible but I have no idea the MOA of the circle (lthinking similar to a red dot which is usually 4-5 moa @ 100), must be waaay up there and at moderate yardage seems you could miss small car. Just as a bright store can give you a false sense about the light gathering ability of a scope I am trying to figure out if I just had bad light or something. I know the deer is brown and not black like the clothing but they wouldn't let me move the stuffed deer around the showroom floor, turn off some lights and such, so I got what I got. Just thinking about shooting from light into shadows.
