i used my leupold mk4 mildot scope last year to take a couple of deer. nothing mystical about mildots that make them any better or worse than a generic deer scope reticle. deer are typically under 200yds which with a typical deer round sighted for 100yds. it doesnt matter if the deer is 25 yards or 200yds a center hold on the vitals = dead deer.
mil dots are handy for compairing deer size from one deer to the next but thats the only real advantage i can see
