Unfortunately the subtensions aren't wide enough to use at extended distances probably, although u could get a rough interpolation by applying the entire windage line at 4 and 6 MOA respectively. I've done this myself as long as there's a reference point in the background of the FOV to go off of. It can work though it's definitely an improvisation of sorts.
The Varmint Hunters reticle is much better for this since they put 6 1.77 MOA units right along the horizontal axis, and works great for this app.
Yeah believe me I know its improvising.
I do have the whole reticle mapped out for my load and it works well as someone already said for what it was designed to do... I thought I might just take it a little further and use the second cross hair only for all dialed shots. That in turn would give me a hold for up to two minutes on all dialed shots. Then in turn if I was walkin through trees or found myself in a situation where I needed to get off a quick shot my first cross hair would be zeroed at 180. Like I said I know 2 moa aint alot of hold but shooter says I should be able to get out to around 700 in a full value 5-7 mph 90° wind. Any more than that and ill just dial windage and hold right on like ive been doin. I just thought for huntin purposes I could dial elevation and hold wind on one cross hair out to around 700 if it aint blowin too hard.
Ill give it a go and test it out on some rocks and such and just keep waitin for the day I can get into a NXS.
Thank you very much for your link thats what I was lookin for...
And thanks to everyone else for the replies
