Slope, temp, altitude are all changes to the bullet drop. You could have a chart for 30 degrees up and 30 degree down, etc., etc. [ QUOTE ]


To cover all of the possiable angles your going to need to carry a prety thick Note Book....... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

Cam,

Good suggestions to add the columns for drop, clicks just as a backup!

I am not looking for this as an exact science, as we say in the computer world, it is "I hope it works" science! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

K.I.S.S I'm all for useing dots,hashes or whatever for figureing out holdovers but adjusting the power [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]
Now if your setting the power to have the mill.dots set to MOA than it might be easy enough to use ...but still limited in the range.For me much past 750 yards,dialing is more consistant.
The big advantage to mill-dots or other reticles is their fast target acquisition,if you have to turn a knob it may as well be the elivation knob and leave the power setting fixed!
But hey if it works for you have at it,by the way it sounds like your system is a lot like the Hawk system??

If you use the Mil Dots and fine tune your agjustments with turrets,in cojunction with an ACI then you have the best method of useing the mill dots for small targets and you want need a Billion charts for differrent angles.......... [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Mach v,
Yes I think my concept is very similar to the Hawk system, the Leupold B & C and the Burris Mil-Dot Ballistic Plex. I think my concept is more adaptable to your individual rifle though. The problem I see with the Leupold and the Burris is that the dot or hash spacing is not equal so that makes it not adaptable??
