have charts made up so I'm not all that stuck on iphy I just prefer it. As well I do a small
amount of surveying and degrees, minutes and seconds are familiar to me.
I deal with degrees and levels of degrees all day at work too. IPHY is so easy and quick.........night and day compared to mils.
Example: Assuming a big Muley buck is 20" back to belly, and he covers 4 minutes in the scope........20/4 = 5, or 500 yds. Then minus the 5% and he is 475 yds away. Very simple, very intuitive and very quick
. He's really 477 yds away, but 475 does the trick.
Try to range various size targets (small hunting size targets) with a mil dot scope and
in your head.........not nearly as easy.
