Re: Greybull Scope Question
Great explanation of the ranging bars. The first line is 3MOA down from the main crosshair (should have added that to the vid).
The concern about the reticle being too busy is a common question we get from folks who haven't looked through one. The size and thickness of the reticle is exaggerated in the videos and on the web graphics. The whole reticle is smaller and finer in real life, but can be hard to display clearly in video graphics at the real size.
Once guys get out to the range and look through the scope, those concerns aren't an issue. Even though the need for the bars is rare (it has saved the day in a few bad weather situations), we find ourselves using them to measure with pretty often. If you are out busting rocks and you know you are powdering a rock at 800 yards, you can quickly measure it with the wind and range bars (1 space = 8" (8.376) @ 800 yards) and see if its the size of a grape fruit or a hippo.
Sighting in is a breeze - take one shot and measure from the aim point to the hit and you can quickly see that you are 4 MOA left and 7.5 MOA low.
