My new Mark 4

I just purchased a new Leupold Mark 4 6.5-20x50mm LR/T M1 with the TMR

This is my first scope with any type of tactical milling, and Im gathering data.

Can anyone who is familiar with this reticle point me in the right direction please.

Thanks.

Re: My new Mark 4

The manual that came with your scope would be an excellent place to start.

For a more exhaustive dissertation, read The Ultimate Sniper by John Plaster.

Re: My new Mark 4

I have the M5 version what type of info do you want to know? The manual is pretty extensive.

Re: My new Mark 4

The reticule is pretty basic, small hash 1/2 mil, large 1 mil, divided into 5. Bottom of main is 1/5 mils, can be used for more accurated ranging. I am using mine and ranging w/notes and animals ,laser back up and see how close I CAN GET. mINE IS m5, with a 200 zero and using reticle my holds are 275,350,412,475,537,600,663,712,that is 1/2 mils too #4 mil,then 825 #5 mil,dial offs the same since I am m5. 7.2 mil gets me 1000. I also made mine a zero stop.

I dont have the scope it's in the mail.

I will read the manual and glad to hear it comes with instructions specific to the reticle. I did not know that and it puts me at ease. Thanks.

I should have known better than to ass-u-me (assume) that it would come with leupolds generic manual that my rifleman scopes came with.

Re: My new Mark 4

I also have the TMR reticle and it's a great rangefinding reticle. It has the capability of ~.02 mil interpolation accuracy (guessing bracketing of target between lines) between the .2 mil stadia lines (.1 of .2 mil=.02 mil).
