why spend 30 buck when you can spend 30 min doing a little math and make your own drop chart and tape it to your stock?

Re: Mill Dot holdover

One more ? if im shooting 200 yrds at a 2 deg downhill angle
and did my math this way
11.27* .999=11.258
4.43-11.258=-6.82
3.6*200=7.2
-6.82/7.2=-.94
so that means i would aim .94 mills low at 200 yrds or am i doing this wrong?

Re: Mill Dot holdover

better yet, spend $75 for Exbal with the reticle calculator tool and you can figure drops for any scope first or second focal plane with any caliber.
