Re: Ranging type reticles, do we realy need them??
soon as i get the cd from my mate who took a digi cam with him, i'll get some photos out, i'd say i'm in the middle of the road as far as gadgets and equipment, i use what is usefull and easily portable. mildots in a scope, a lazer rangefinder, an angle cosine indicator, a trajectory table, a harris bipod. I do have a mildot master but i hardly ever use it as ranging in meters and adjusting in miliradians of fractions there of is so easy. other items are a whistle, a compas and a flare, small medical pack.
ive got mates that carry a damn palm computer, spotting scopes, tripods, emergency rations, a full cammelback, and go off for a 4 hour stalk carrying enough kit for a week..
