Reticle question

Any way to get a reticle that is just a "dot". No visible lines. Just a dot.

Problem has to do with the ol' right eye.

Left eye is good as far as seeing 'straight' goes but vision is worse than right eye but the right eye sees crooked. That is, lines of any length look like snakes.

Leuy makes a dot but has very light lines supporting it.

The center or dot is good with either eye but the crookedness is a bit worrysome.

There isn't a fix for the eye but may be compensated for with the reticle.

Re: Reticle question

The only reticle I know of that isnt an elctric dot is the NF NP-2DD.It still has lines but they taper to a point and are 2MOA away from the dot.
If lines appear to be crooked wouldnt the dot dance a little too?

They do a DOT ONLY - It's black when unlit THE DOT SPECS

I've only seen hunting Nickels - they're NOT S&B's - but they're not BAD scopes. You can only buy direct.

I love the 2DD, I am thinking of switching my other NF to it also....

Re: Reticle question

Mach V

The center of the ret. is ok as the retina is messed up around the exact center and when you are sighting you are looking right at the center of the ret.

With the mil dot scope which is all I have, as focus shifts to other dots they move about 0.3 mils to the right then go back to the proper alignment as I look up at the next one.

Hold over and under went by the wayside. I now click for both elevation and windage, thus don't need all that clutter.

I also shoot lefty as that eye is good.

Re: Reticle question

Chris,

Thanks for the links. The dot is called the Isodot and the scope I'd be interested in, 4-16, doesn't have it. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

Re: Reticle question

Sendero,

With my right eye the inner points of the horizonal stadia would be about half way down to to the vertical point.

The distortion is at least one mil or just over 3 MOA. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/frown.gif[/img]

However the ol' left eye is still good.

Gettin old really sux. All the good body parts head south and leave the rest of the body up here in the cold. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
