Between the two, the MPR gets my vote. It seems "busy" at first glance but the finer graduations really pays off when shooting holdovers only and for ranging. My ONLY minor peeve is I wish the center line weight was a bit thinner (only matters for paper).
I have MPR, its exactly everything I was wishing for, as I find it hard to be precise with 0.2mil~0.4mil, and 0.6mil~0.8mil. But if you don't have the same issue as I have, GAP reticle will work fine for you.
the only difference that I know if is the MPR has added a .2 mark. looks like a .25 mark but not. So what you end up getting is a .2, .3, .4, .5, .6, .7, .8 and 1.0 mil intervals to mill out a target... just handy as hell.

I though IT would be too busy when I first saw it, but it works fine for everything I do. </div></div>
I hope with more practice, I could do better with finer measurements using reticle, but 0.05mil is really impressive.

MPR is only busy until you use it. Once you learn the reticle it is nice to have finer milling. I like the GAP reticle too though, could seriously give me one or the other and I would be equally happy.
The nice thing about the MPR is that if you do any type of holdovers or wind holds, it will really come in handy. It's not too busy in my opinion and its real easy to frame targets with. That being said, the GAP is my second choice.

I've got 5 with the GAP reticle and will order more. You can do no harm standardizing on either one since you are starting out from scratch - but the key to my statement is - STANDARDIZE.
Go ahead and stick your toe in the mil/mil USO waters. If you like it, then stick with the one brand and the one reticle. I have them in the 3.2-17 and the fixed 10. The JNP (I think that is what it is called) in the 1.5-6 is the same reticle with a circle around it. Got one of those also.
I'd also recommend you standardize right up front with mil/mil knobs with an EREK.
