SBR LPVO… does “daylight bright” really matter?
So I want to put an LPVO on my suppressed 9″ 300blk for hunting and home defense. I have a Trijicon Credo 1-4x that seems perfect but I read ALOT of complaints about it not being daylight bright.
Ignoring the fact that I’ve never had an issue with the brightness, I got to thinking WHY does daylight bright matter so much with LPVOs? If your background is bright enough that you can’t see the illuminated part of your reticle, doesn’t that bright background provide the perfect contrast to be able to easily see the regular black cross hairs / lines?
I feel like the only time you really need illumination on a scope is with a dark background. We’re not talking about red dots that have no crosshairs and depend solely on illumination.
