Once you learn to use these dots, however, and realize that short of a laser, there's no more accurate range estimation device—and that these dots help you precisely lead moving targets, hold off for wind, and compensate for uphill and downhill targets— well, you'll agree that these dots are just plain marvelous. And the simple beauty is that you can do all these things without ever taking your eye from your scope or your sight picture off your target. Fast, simple, and no moving parts.
