Re: What size are the dots in a Bushnell mil-dot scope?

I just measured the dot subtension relative to the full mil in that picture and it looks to me that they're using a .25 mil dot system for the dot sizes (.25x3.6=.9"). Can't be sure if that's exactly right, but if it is that means their using a bastardization of the old USMC oblong mil-dots that were designed to break the mil. unit down into eighths instead of tenths with the US Army round .2 mil-dot. Here's how it works--

FYI, I called Bushnell today as I had this question, and a knowedgeable guy told me they use the MC version...asst least for the scope I'm considering.

The dots dont look oblong, look like my Leupold which are .20. Think it would be easy to get info

Called Bushnell first thing to press them for more detailed info. They're suppose to be sending me an email with all of it. I'll keep you all posted if you'd like.

Re: What size are the dots in a Bushnell mil-dot scope?

Well...I'm not sure I got anywhere. This is what I finally got out of someone in there tech dept via an email:


He tells me in the email that this is what he was able to give me because of a "loophole" in their policy because he couldn't send me the actual document. I expected more, as may companies freely share their subtensions. I'm a little miffed, and not sure if it's even the right info. I requested info based on a specific scope I'm thinking of buying and this doesn't match up with what one looks like in a youtub video...I don't know...I'm a bit frusterated.

Round dots ARMY mils, foot balls are USMC, looks like ARMY mils to me. FWIW I ditched the mil dot for the TMR, no dots just lines, leupold, Nightforce, US Optics etc all offer the lines. Then I went to Horus grid, trying to ditch the TMR now.
