Looks very similar to the concept of the Horus reticle but not as busy, I like it.

I think (weaver?) had a recticle with a similar concept back in the day. As i recall it had a darker duplex with multiple fine lines horizontal and verticle that formed boxes. Its been ten years since I looked through that scope, but as I recall it only had a few lines, maybe 3 each way. those that used it really liked it.
Bullets have well documented performance specifications.

Min Velocity info is available, and describes the performance floor of the bullet... DON'T allow yourself to reference F.P.E. as an accurate descriptor of killing power.. You are smarter than a copy editor, and you understand that you can determine maximum (reliable) effective range by comparing your drop chart to published bullet data....... And, dog-on-it, people like you!

Nice, but too many tics. Any more than 5 in each of the 4 directions will confuse the eye and the hunter. Probably ok for those who dont venture off the bench.

I thought with every 5th mark (if I had made it correctly) clearly visible it would be fairly simple to use. Although this is all hypothetical.

Unless I am mistaken, it looks like they have a Chemical Engineering program. With a ChemE degree you should have no problem getting into the petroleum engineering field. Nearly all of the petroleum engineers that I work with are chemical engineers. I know there are specialty programs that give a degree in 'petroleum engineering', but I also know that chemical engineers working in the petroleum industry are referred to as petroleum engineers. If you decide to go into the ChemE program you had better be excellent at math and chemistry, and you better give up any plans of actually having a life while in school.

Wow that looks confusing. I like the concept (I guess I made about the same thing) but it would cover up alot of the target it looks like.
