Left at 1X (zero magnification), the bright picture and bold reticule make them very fast to acquire, but the ability to zoom instantly to 4X makes them useable a lot farther out (for me at least) than a non-magnified red dot does.
That sounds like a good way to do it Quake. Where I live it's hard to find a 200 yard shot if your not at a range or on a boat so my red dot works ok here.
