Re: Help! Got Schmit Bender! Dont know how to use

Why try to convert it to MOA? He has a very expensive piece of equipment (one of the best) that is in mils. It's a system, adjustments and reticle are in mils. Learn to use mils... Why try to add confusion? All you hear about is how guys want everything to match, and when they do even that isn't good enough. I've got an idea, lets complicate things.

If you don't like it, sell it to me for what it's worth to you...next to nothing.

Re: Help! Got Schmit Bender! Dont know how to use

a centimeter is a unit of measurement where as a mil is an angle, Run your dope in mils and your distance in yards or meters and you will have no problems, it doesnt matter what scope you have, a mil is a miland an moa is an moa, with both your dealing with angle just using a different scale. forget inches and centimeters. I have a 4-16x42 pm 2 with moa adjustments and a mil reticle, I run the drop moa and the windage with the reticle in mils they are both doing the same thing just going about it differently.

I want to thank everyone foe their input but I think a simple comment just brought me to light. It is a scope that measures in mils! I didnt know that. Once I realized that, it only means that I need to check my shooter app and voila, I have my dope! thank you all

Me, I'd toss it in the garbage and get an MOA scope.

Just tell me where and when you put out the garbage..............

Because that's what he asked for ! If he had of asked how to use it in mils then he would have got that answer .
