...or if u just wanted to use that particular scope's highest power, then it's 3.12 IPHY / 1.047 = 2.98 MOA

11.75 / 2.98 = 3.9 "mil-dots"

Something to think about.

And dont forget - if all else fails you creep up VERY carefully on your intended prey and clout it one with the scope too,

If things ever get "ultra nasty" here and we are not concerned about MOD ( minute of deer) but are concerned about MOM ( minute of [evil] man) and have a mil dot scope, from 'Nam, set your rifle to a 400 yard zero. At target distinces of 100-300 yards, hold center of mass.( belt buckle) 300-400 yds center of shirt. 400-500 just under the armpit. 500-600 top of hairline plus windage. Quick and effective if you do your release properly. Overbore [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shocked.gif[/img]

Re: How do you use a Mil-Dot scope?

I have an Excel sheet, I made a while back for 6.5-20 and 8.5-25 scopes. It uses a yardage range of 100 to 1000 and mils from .2 to 10. This gives one an idea, how many mils for a given object at the differing ranges. I would be happy to attach, if someone could help me to post it.
