Re: Using mil dots as a holdover
Using mils as a holdover is very reliable so long as YOU do the math right.
Bullet drop (at range) in inches / 3.6 / (range in yards / 100)
The below example is 253" of drop at 1000 yards.
253" / 3.6 = 70.27 / 10 = Mil holdover value.
Long range shooting is a process that ends with a result. Once you start to focus on the result (how bad your last shot was, how big the group is going to be, what your buck will score, what your match score is, what place you are in...) then you loose the capacity to focus on the process.
