TMR 1/2 mil fine line to line as opposed to Mildot 1 mil dot to dot. A definite step forward .

Understood thanks. So this newer reticle should assist in precision shooting at long range.

Yes, however in all fairness if you'r shooting long range you would be dialing in your dope, the TMR's main role is more for accurate range finding.  Wink Having said that, if you run out of clicks and you'r using Kentucky Windage for hold overs the TMR's reticule helps big time.

simply put if you want to make use of the reticle the TMR needs to be in 1st focal plain and relatively high Mag. I have this reticle in my S&B (P4F) and in my 12-40 Spotting scope. They are virtually identical.  with a TMR reticle in 1st focal plain at 40x mag you can accurately Mil targets and work out their range +/- 60m at 1300m. the TMR is real fine.

If you are not shooting unknown distance, you don't really need such a reticle. Most F Class scopes for 1000 yards simply have a dot for a real precise aim. (1/8MOA target dot) meaning the dot covers a 1.25 Inches circle at 1000 yards.

If you are shooting a conventional target with circle rings, the windage hold offs are not important as you will most probably use the circles on the target it self for windage hold off. If you will be engaging metal plates/ unconventional targets/ hunting scenario the windage hold offs can be very useful as pointed out by Mildot.

Decide on the purpose then choose the scope.
