Just for everyones information. I had the opportunity to test my rifle and load at 300 and 500 yards. The Boone and Crockett reticle's aiming points for these distances were dead on. I was shooting a six inch steel target. I was using Remington 180gr pointed soft point core lock. Caliber is 300 win-mag. Scope is Leupold VXIII, 4.5~14 x 40mm.
I was very pleased with the accuracy of the B&C reticle.

Does the German #6 offer a bullet drop compensating reticle? Just curious.

No, the 3 post (german recticle) imho prevents alot of clutter in the view. I havd a Nikon BDC scope that works darn great, but at far distance the BDC line can distract and get in the way.

Even worst in low lights, this becomes a bigger issues.
