Well if your laser range finder stops working or it is snowing you can range your game (deer, elk or antelope) with the hash marks because you know the distance between them. From what I have read you can do this fairly accurately out to about 700 yds.
I shoot a 6mm Norma BR. with 105 gr. Berger VLDs. My zero is 200 yds. at 300 yds. it drops 8 1/5" and 21 1/5" at 400 yds. It drops like a rock, but with the custom turret all I need to know the distance then turn the turret to the yardage and shoot. I was able to do this and hit the gongs all the way out to 1,200 yards the very first time I tried to shoot at those distances. I have to qualify this by saying I did not hit the gongs every time because of the wind mostly. This custom turret is right on the money for elevation. I hold for the wind.

PS: My rifle is extremely accurate by the way.
