I have had seriously good results with the Burris LER's with BP reticles. Don't use as much as I used to, but they work

The Burris 3x12's are great scopes. I have 4 ballistic plex's and 3 non BP's
on XP's that I shoot metallic silhouette with.

Being fairly new to the world of handgun hunting and having no experience with scoped pistols I'm curious what the pros and cons are of the standard plex reticle and ballistic plex reticle. It would be mounted on a raging bull 454 with an 8 inch barrel

Standard plex reticle is fine for a revolver. B-Plex is an aid for long distance shooting.

With them being priced the same is there a downfall to having the b plex on a revolver? I like the idea of being able to move it to a longer range gun in the future as long as the b plex reticle isn't too busy

Maybe a 2-7X BPlex on a revolver. The 3-12 is not needed. Very few revolvers able to shoot far enough to make the 3-12 usable. Even fewer shooters to take advantage of the 3-12 on a revolver. Not a lot of revolvers accurate enough at very long ranges to make a 3-12 useful.
3-12 on a single shot is a whole different story. It's the best.
The Plexes on either of these would be tough to line up to make them useable on revolvers. The revolver rounds just don't shoot flat enough to make the plexes very useful. However, on singles shots, most of them shoot flat enough to make the plexes usable from 400-500 yds.
I still think the best revolver scope is the 2-6X Bushnell Elite. I've used mine on game out to 200 yds.

I was looking at the 2x7 but the Bushnell elite looks good as well. I haven't been able to find it online anywhere but on the Bushnell website though. I even called Cabelas and they said they didn't offer it. The Bushnell Trophy pistol scope is everywhere but not the elite. Thanks to everyone for the advice. I'll take any that I can get
