Re: Nikon m223 mounted on .243...will this work
Vette, Thanks for the great try, my answer exactly until d said nikoplex reticle. What will you use the .243 for,coyote,deer,plinking,all three? I agree that going to Spot On and checking out what .243 loads are most closely related to the .223,55 gr. bullet at 3240 fps that the plex is calculated for.
I love shooting my Win. Model 70 Coyote in .243 with 55. gr projectiles, they scream out of the barrel and do great out in West Texas.
You can also just disregard the numbers completely and just treat it like a regular scope with .25 in. clicks at 100 yards. I would still put the zero at 100 yards.
I hope this info helps, the M-223 is built on the MONARCH platform and has very crisp clear glass.
