Re: Beyond 2500 yds

Not sure how the MILL DOT system works, or which focal (sp) plane that it is on, but, my 5.5-22NF with an NP R2 retical...



Ten 2 MOA hashmarks for a total of 20 MOA at 22X

Ten 4 MOA hashmarks for a total of 40 MOA at 11X.

Ten 8 MOA hashmarks for a total of 80 MOA at 5.5x.

80 (reticle) plus 40 ( rail) plus say 80% of the available dial up, or 80 MOA(scope) = a total of 200 MOA.

It can be done!!

I would think you could but not to good sure not going to pin point any thing. I can see my 12 X 14" steel @ 2100 at my range but that's far as i can get. i would think you would want to on a lot high mag than 5 far a shot like that.

Weather or not you can see a man sized target was not the question. question was simply "HOW" with limited adjustment.

Asked and answered.

Besides, the origonal posts says it would take 148 MOA. I could use 11X (40 MOA) to get the job done.

Not that it is relavent, but can you see a man at 2700 yards on 11X?? My guess is yes. I think even at 5.5 you can see good enough to make the shot...rely on the spotter for imput.
