All depends on the range you expect to shoot. Lots of people use the 3-9 CDS with the dial set up for the factory load. This allows shooting out to 300 yards, some claim. But, if you are shooting shorter distances, a lower power scope without turret dial would be fine. You could even use a dot or reflex sight if magnification was not needed
In not taking hunting shots beyond 150 yards, Actually 99 .99% are under 100. However I opened up a new lane where 150 could be fairly common. I can do that with these scopes and not worry about changing a turret for said distance. No need for Kentucky elevation as thats built it.
Secondly the circle radical in the center focuses my eye much faster and better the the fine calibrated tactical dots most other scope feature for the round. It also stands out much better in low light.
