What happens with the mil dots? The reticle is cut differently for the different magnification. So they have a different reticle for the 10x, the 16x and the 20x right? If not this equation Target size in yards X 1,000 Divided by # of mil dots needed to cover target Would not work because the # of mil dots needed to cover ther target would change. If the magnification is greater obviously it would require less mil dots than usual to cover the target. So they have different reticles right? Please? haha I REALLY dont feel like adding another factor into the mathematic equation I just started into mil-dots a few days ago. Thanks! Dave __________________ Math>Grammar

Here is what I learned from when I got a mil dot scope a couple of years ago. http://www.alpharubicon.com/leo/mildot.htm http://www.remingtonmilitary.com/art...a%20mil-dot%22 Hope these articles help. I really like the mil dot system myself. I've done ome good long range shooting with my Rem 700 .308 using the mil dots. __________________ "No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms."- Thomas Jefferson ΜΟΛΩΝ ΛΑΒΕ(>_<)

In a first focal plane scope, the reticle will always accurately subtend the angle specified. In a fixed power, it always has to be on since you can't adjust it. __________________ Zak Smith .
