Easy as pie, if you get the MOAR reticle. Yardage judging is simple with the MOAR reticle....If you know about how tall an object is in inches, look at it through your scope and see how many mil-hashes it fits inbetween in height. Divide your items known height (inches), by the number of hash marks it fits inbetween, then multiply by 100, and you have your approximate yardage to dial up.
For example, say the vertical width of a whitetail's back is 16" in hight (average) from top to bottom... And in your scope it fits inside of 4 hashes.
16/4 = 4
4 x 100 = 400
Your approximate distance to your target is 400 yards. So, dial up the number of clicks your ballistics chart tells you to, from your zero'd yardage.
