Some of the cool kids in USPSA seem to be gravitating to 6 MOA, FWIW. The Holosun circle dot has the advantage that if you have a bad presentation and can’t see the dot, you might still be able to see the circle and that would tell you where the dot is. The circle dot is certainly more busy. Reticle choice does seem to be a personal taste thing.On zeroing:
I do initial zero at 10.
Go to 25 and confirm and refine (mostly focusing on windage)
After thats done im usually good to 50.
If im feeling super analytical after that ill do a walkback in 10 yard increments to 100 yards holding the same point of aim on target and figure out my holds.
Im partial to the Trijicon RMR, i put 1 MOA dots on pretty much everything but im weird.

The two SROs that I just bought for game guns are supposedly 5 MOA, though they look pretty small to me. I figure bigger will be easier for me to see quickly.Yeah. I like the 1 because i like shooting small targets at distance. B8s a 50 are therapeutic for me lololol
I can tell from scopes I have - I like a small central dot better than a chevron.
Dunno, would be nice to try it somewhere first, how my astigmatism will react to it.
If your referring to my post above yours, I thought we were discussing zeroing the dot.It’s not about the homo rounds touching tips, it’s about how fast can you place the shots in proximity to eachother.
I see nerds at the range taking selfies with their targets after spending 10 min on one mag and still look like shit. 10 min is like an eternity for me.
i`ve zeroed my ruger irons today (as i got optics off it, waiting for new mount plate for DPP) , at 25yds, got in the end a 1.5-2inch groups shooting from the rest. several shots got in the half inch, but, not too consistent.I can see the big outer circle helping you learn how to find the dot (or in this case the chevron) when starting out, but you would probably be better served perfecting your presentation through dry practice drawing till the dot is in the window every time.
I guess I can see the logic in it, though, assuming bigger is better for some reason. 32 moa is about 2 1/3" at 7 yards, good enough for typical rapid-fire SD work. Probably not going to be hitting clays on the berm at 25 yards, though.the 32MOA circle is bullshit. the 2moa dot is ok. but, green - well, go figure.

an interesting thing - they got a coating on the sight that filters out most of the red. i tried to zero it using red barrel laser - had to turn off the light in the basement completely to be able to see that red dot, it was almost completely subdued. my prescription glasses with the sun-reactive coating reduce the halos caused by astigmatism, so, it will do, for now.
With astigmatism this 32moa crap looks like a solid green blob obstructing half of view of that small window.The 32 MOA has some merit. If you present the gun but don't see the dot (because your presentation was bad), you might still see the 32 MOA circle and that will tell you where the dot is. Also, in close range, center the 32 moa circle on the chest and fire away. Some folks like the 32 MOA circle, others don't. You can turn it off, so to each his own.
Green is reported to be easier to see than red and is also apparently better for those with astigmatism.
So china made dots = bad? What about china made lights like the Streamlight TLR series? Do you run Surefire only?
