    Black Diamond,

    I really like my IOR scopes. The hash marks are mil-dots without the dots. The distance between two larger hash marks is equal to one mil or 3.6 inches at 100 yards. The distance between a large hash mark and the smaller hash mark between the two larger ones is 1/2 mil or 1.8 inches at a 100 yards.

    I like the MP8 reticle much better than mil-dots. Even though they are the same in theory, I find using the hash marks makes it much easier to range targets.

    Let me know if you would like the mil-dot formula for ranging targets.

    Hope it helps [img]images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    Distance is not an issue, but the wind will make it interesting!

    This is just close ----dont know if its exact
    1 mil equals approx. 3.39285714285 MOA
    Got it off my traj chart running both MOA and Mil values
    Someone tell me how close I am
    If you have 1/2 mil spacing that would be--1.69642857142

    Jeff,

    I was going to use these for mostly hold over on known targets 300 to 1000yds. So one mil=3.6 MOA 100yds. is that correct? or can this be done with this scope. does it have to be set on a certain power to remain the same, like the nightforce on 22 power for the rangeing system to work.

    I may be wrong but I think what your asking and what your wanting is 2 differant things.
    1 Mil = 3.6 " at 100 yards --Thats correct ,but 1 inch and 1 MOA is not exactly the same
    My apoligy if I misunderstood
