Got a newbie ? on scope reticle

If you use ballistic reticle LIke the mil-dot are you still able to dial in for your shots and use the other marks to take a secong shot if you need it and know how far out its gone to hit

Re: Got a newbie ? on scope reticle

the idea when dialing is to use the center crosshair for any distance. the other dots, as in a mil-dot set-up, can be used but you have to know what distance they are apart and on what power. the answer is yes, but i'm not going into all of the variables you have as it will probably make you feel more confused than when you asked the question!

Yes you can still dial for your shot. The point of Mil-dots/TMR/MP8 and other reticles is more of ranging, not so much giving you hold overs (though they work for that also). You have to understand that these reticles were devised for military purposes, not hunting. Do they work for hunting, yes, but they were not designed for this purpose.
