That makes more sense. According to TRA, using standard atmosheric conditions and your info, your drops should be as follows:

200 yards = 1.02 MOA 0.3 Mils

300 yards = 2.87 MOA 0.83 Mils

400 yards = 5.10 MOA 1.48 Mils

500 yards = 7.65 MOA 2.22 Mils

600 yards = 10.51 MOA 3.06 Mils

This could be done more accurate with the actual atmospheric data during your shooting test.

Hope that helps.

I think you're correct. But I assumed that where a milliradian reticle was used, the turret adjustments would be in mils also. Are adjustments in the military scopes graduated in mils?

Thanks for the calculations, the whole thing makes more since [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif[/img] This is the first mil reticle I've ever used. I've always thought in MOA. I'm kinda glad the adjustments are in MOA, means I won't have to go back to college to understand the math [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img].

The night force scope are all MOA adjustable even with milradian reticles.

There is one or 2 scopes that use mil value adjustments (.344 MOA) I think the USO "GAP" is one such scope, but dont quote me. Your scope will adjust itself .250 MOA per click provided it is the NXS and not the bench rest version in which case it will be .125 MOA per click.

Thanks to all, meichele, buffalobob and Wild Bill for your input. I think we've figured it out. I tried to call Nightforce today, but they are closed on Friday. No need now.
