    I use a 1600B but not the pre set ballistic curves. In the US set nothing was close enough to the load I use so just use the Lecia for ranging and degree of slope. Once you know the ballistic curve of the load you are using then you can see if any of the pre set EU curves fit close enough for you to use.

    Basically the answer is no. If using the EU system the holdover is in centimeters. Using the US system the holdovers are in inches.

    But isn't 1 cm@100 m = 0.1 mrad? That is in mildot units. What am I missing?
