Got it. 512 turned all the way down will work well for shorter ranges, usually around 50m and in. For instance, for CQB I'll use the non-NV setting, dimmed down just enough so I can see it under white light for lit/non-lit room transitions. At longer ranges the brighter reticle's bloom will begin to exceed the size of the target. The distance at which this will happen will vary based on whether your tubes are autogated, size of the target, illum conditions, etc.
So, to be clear- for close/short ranges a non-NV red dot is good to go. For longer ranges, the brightness will get in the way a bit. Hope that helps.
If you're in Texas, we can go swing by a range and I can show you.
