    I am a bit of an outlaw here, I use an Optisan VIE 1-6x24 GEi for HFT on an AA ProSport. So no mildots what so ever, just a German4 cross. I use 5x magnification. Basically it is a driving hunting scope, but it has crystal clear glass and with 5x mag I see everything very clear. Parallax is fixed on 100 meter, the scope itself is a 0.2 MRAD scope and it works for me. Even in the night shoot of last Friday at the Air Arms Memorial (the first time I used this one in a night shoot) it was proven that it work very well, no problems with the limited light.
