Bushnell DOA reticle?

Hello,

Im in the market for a cheap rifle scope. Im looking at the Bushnell 3200 3-9x40mm DOA reticle. I had a question about the reticle itself. How can a reticle suck as that be calibrated for multiple popular calibers? Will this reticle work for a .30-06 lobbing a 180 gr bullet? Or is this reticle calibrated for flatter cartridges?

400 yards is about max range for a 30-06 to be effective as a game hunting cartridge. That is where the cartridge ballistics/retained energy,average rifle and shooter with a typical scope and factory ammo abilities start degrading RAPIDLY-actually most shouldn't even think 400 yard shots. I handload for my 30-06 and 300 WSM and they both have a 400 yard limit for ethical and humane shots that have to be near perfect presentation, and both of are Sub MOA. You start putting factory ammo out those distances and you don't know what you'll get. There is a link below for a ballistics table.
I have 3x9 40mm and 2.5x10 50mm on my rifles, and I sight in all my centerfire hunting rifles to have a 200 yard ZERO,that way a 300 yard shot is 9 inches hold-over and 400 is about 23 inches. I've only had to take one long shot ever, most are well within 250 yards. I've been close enough to slap cow elk on their way past. Anyway, you don't need gimmicks, you need to learn your rifle's abilities (and your own) with practice. I suggest getting a very simple Duplex reticle, like the Nikon Nikoplex or the Leupold Fine Duplex-whatever Bushnell uses (if you stay with the Bushnell) in a duplex. You get all that Bullet Drop Compensation and Mil-Dot clutter in front of you and you get information overload-trust in the rifle and your practiced skills. If you sight in for a 200 yard ZERO (about 2 inches high at 100-see chart) then anything within a realistic ballistic envelope is going to be easy enough to hit. Again,unless you are shooting near Minute of Arc for groups you are not making 400 yard shots with any consistency-and those "Long Shots" are rare anyway. There are a lot of decent scopes, get what you can afford, but don't waste time with the DOA style scopes. Those type scopes are designed for varmint shooting where a small target is easier to spot to with the Mil-Dots or BDC.
