Re: Scope questions
Mil-dot reticles were designed to range fixed items, like windows, door frames, oil drums, truck tyres, etc.
For targets that you don't know the size, they are worthless. If the hight of the animal (chest on big game, or hight on a coyote) is 24" @ 500yds, and you guess 18", you get a range of 666 yds - clearly a BIG miss.
For hunters (non-snipers), the best use of the Mil-dots is to use them as hold over points, and windage hold off points... and use a pocket laser for ranging.
