Re: Mill Dot holdover

Just remember that 1 mil represents 3.6" at 100 yards.
So lets say that drops are:
300 yards = 7"
400 yards =22"
500 yards = 45"

For 300 yards 3.6 x 3 = 10.8 (this is what 1 mil represents at 300 yards) Now take your 7" of drop for 300 and divide it 10.8 and you come up with .648 mils for your hold over.

400 yards 3.6 x 4 = 14.4 (22 divided by 14.4) = 1.529 mil hold over

500 yards 3.6 x 5 = 18 (45 divided by 18) = 2.5 mil hold over

I hope this helps

David

Re: Mill Dot holdover

nate this will work for any caliber. If you have your drops just substitute them for the ones for the corresponding yardage. Do you have your drop chart?
