Re: Building a drop table off mil dots
If you are gonna punch your stuff into exbal to get a drop for mils you do need to know what power setting your scope needs to be set for mils. If you were just gonna go shoot to make your own drop chart then the setting doesn't matter, as stated above just make sure the power ring is on the same setting whenever you are gonna use the drop chart. I have never used the 6.5-20 so I can't tell you what power it SHOULD mil at. What you need to do is place a 36" target at exactly 100 yards and adjust the power setting till the 36" is on the 10 mil. Then mark that setting on the power ring, it may fall between the numbers. You can do smaller targets but it is more precise on a bigger target.
1mil = 3.6" @ 100yards
5mil = 18" @ 100yards
10mil = 36" @100yards
