Help! Got Schmit Bender! Dont know how to use

Hello,

I recently acquired a schmit bender scope. its the 4-16x50 PMII LP P4F. The scope indicates that each click is 1cm, but I do not know how to use this system.

I am very familiar with MOA systems, but this scope uses a system that applies meters for distance and centimeters for adjustments.

I dont know how to determine an adjustment if I will do a shot at 700 meters when the scope is zeroed at 100 meters.

can someone explain me how to use it? please

Ah the metric system simple yet confusing, every measurement can be directly converted. cm="centi" or 100 and there are 2.54 centimeters in one inch, one hundred centimeters equals one meter. = My advice is to erase the English system from your mind in order to use the optic.

Maybe stupid but try this

Ballistics - Norma

First try the us and then metric and enter your BC / speed?

If you make a ballistic table/chart it is simple. I make one in MOA for a friend who is metric only - he shoots great now

Forget the cm, your turrets match your reticle. They are both in mils.

1 millimeter is .0397 ( about .040)
1 centimeter is .397 ( or just a tad less that .40 inches)

I always refer to them as ".040" and "4 tenths"

a click is a centimeter at 100 METERS, the same click is 1/10th of a mil at 100 YARDS.

1 MOA at 100 yards = 2.5 cm , 2.5 clicks
so if you wanted to move 8 MOA on the scope . 8 x 2.5 = 20 clicks .
Just multiply all your MOA requirments by 2.5 and round out.
