I think the fixed 10 is a bit more versatile than the 12X, unless strictly punching targets on the range, and the milquad reticle is a bit easier to use at distance than the mil-dot.

The SS Mil-Quad Reticle is what I meant to say, not the mildot. Thanks for your recommendation on the 10X vs. 12X, as I was not sure which would be better.

What are the pros/cons of a chassis? Other that the obvious LOP and cheek adjustments? I am not sure I like a pistol grip on a precision rifle. Is there a downside to the RPR? They seem very popular.

Another question as to barrel length, the Tikka is available in 20" and 24". For only target shooting, which would you prefer?
