Go with the standard stadia lines (cross hairs) and never look back.

ACOGs are awesome, but at a fixed four power like mine (TA01), it is kinda weird looking at something in a close up CQB setting.

Use the ACOG for that longer range shooting, and mount a red dot on top of it for CQB use.

Oh and make sure that what you get is calibrated for your barrel and bullet weight.

Some are made for 16" 62 grain, or 20" 62 grain, or 20" 55 grain etc .etc.

I hope this helps.

The donut is the best general purpose reticle on a general purpose optic. Everything you need and nothing you don't.

Reticle choice is a personal preference, I like BAC ACOGs. Even the brightly lit reticle is harder to use for CQB, there's a learning curve and requires frequent familiarity practice and training, it's still not as fast as 1x optics for many of us.

I'll get an H reticle soon, hopefully in green and 4x32 if Trijicon ever makes one

LOL different strokes...I dug this thread up looking for some reticle pics of TA31F-G..didnt find em but I'll give my worthless opinion...you really need to play with various...

Chevron for me. I find it easiest in CQB to find, just put it on target and shoot very fast every time. The tip is 100 m, 200 bottom of chevron and chevron helps better with range finding.
