All of the ballistic reticles work similar, you need the difference in inches between aim points/crosshairs, accurate MV and Exbal and you can figure for ANY power, not just the max or mftr listed power.

My Nikon monarch with mill dots came with a setting on the power ring that's says mil right in between the 14 and 16 power.

Bountyhunter, thanks for giving a good explanation for something I have been doing for years but have a hard time explaining to others.

Re: No Click LR carry gun

Any scope with dots/dashes/marks etc will work. You simply need the distance between marks in inches and exbal with the reticle tool..

You can make it work at any power, not just the max power.

I have set up a dozen or so rifle like this with a variety of scopes.

Simple, accurate and works great out to 600-800 or so depending on gun and scope combo

Re: No Click LR carry gun

I went the same route with my lupy 4.5 -14 b&c and varm. model. i can actually use the last mark on the varm. model for 600 yards with my 6mm x284 that is actually supposed to be for range finding. still like my nightforces though

Re: No Click LR carry gun

BH,

Good post. It should motivate some folks to take things to the next level.

I've worked up the same kind of setup for my carry gun. It's about a pound heavier than yours and a 338 RUM but still an easy carry.

My scope is a FFP Mil reticle. I think I'd like an MOA reticle better......

I kind of 'lucked out' when validating the drop chart that the rig is spot on with the chart out to 1177 yds. Kind of a 'cross over' rig.
