Mark 4- How do I use it?

Hey Guys, Ive got a Mark4 with Illuminated TMR reticle.

How ever, ive read a bit about the reticle but cant work out how to use it with out
having to dial for elevation. Apparently you can do this with out a rangefinder just by using the reticle.

Can someone please briefly describe how? I will only be shooting gongs at long range until I figure out how to use
it properly.


Also, does anyone know if/where I can get a 20moa Rail for my T3 lite?

Thanks

on its highest setting each mark is 1/2 mil, or 1.8" per 100 yards of range, so an 18" gong will be 1 mil or 2 1/2 mil marks at 500 yards, or 1/2 mil at 1k.
get yourself a mil dot master and play with it, the TMR is the same as a mil-dot only graduated into 1/2 mils.

a slide rule calibrated to mils, go to SWFA Accessories Mil-Dot Master and do a search, it'll explain it.

Here is one of the better articles I have found discribing (teaching) the use of the Mil Dot reticle.
Excalibur Enterprises Survival Catalog\Web Site\how to use a mil-dot scope

I apoligize to the mods for linking to another site, hopefully I won't get booted for this.

Thanks for your help guys!

I havent picked up the scope yet, tho the mildot is the same price as the TMR reticle. Which one is better? easier to use? Pro's and Con's?

Thanks guys

the TMR is just a mildot with 1/2 mil graduations instead of 1 mil, I believe....which should allow for more precise estimating on range and hold-overs.
