Yes, you can read the reticle and apply a hold, but that data is only useful on the power your reticle subtends correctly.
Earlier, you said your new POA is the first shot's POI. What you are saying now makes more sense. ;)
Ya my words come out about like my numbers, scrambled
I'm not worried when I'm hunting about data collecting till the animal is down, then I can go back and collect data on the shot, I've gone back to the original shot and shoot a rock or something at the same point the animal was standing just to figure out what went on.
If I need to back of for some reason I simply back of the the spot marked on my optic that says 2x and then it's doubled, which I do often if I'm using my BDC reticle optic to change the value of the hold to be more accurate to what I need. I find it very handy to have an optic that the reticle changes in, sometime I run out of windage on the reticle and need to dial it back to gain more MOA on the hold.
