scopes with the mil-dot...question

I've been looking at a couple scopes with the mil-dot cross hair and I have a question..." what power setting do you use to determine the mil-dot reading?" Don't know if the question makes any sense.

Re: scopes with the mil-dot...question

If its FFP(first focal plane)then its the same at any power setting ,if its a SFP (second focal plane) then it should be stated in the owners manual.A lot are based on full power. I have a bushnell 6500 2.5x16 thats true at 10x.
What scopes are you looking at?

SFP or FFP reticle, you need to check it. Don't just take the manufacture's word either way.
