Hi MSU Marksman,
I use MilDot for ranging up to 800yrds on big games. I love to use MilDot for ranging, especially when your Rangefinder is out of battery or is TO COLD to operate.
Usually I'm out with 20-30yards at 800yards, because the size of animals can vary from one to another.
When you are using this techniques you have to see how old is your target (young or old game), because the size is always different, and after that you have to apply the MilDot technique for ranging.
YOU NEED LOTS OF PRACTICE, PRACTICE AND PRACTICE...
I USED MILDOT FOR RANGING IN CONJUNCTION WITH MILDOT-MASTER
