Re: Schmidt & Bender PMII scopes

Center Punch,

If you think imperial is simpler than metric, presumably you're also lamenting decimalisation? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] Bring back the sixpence! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

The mil (the 6400 one) is an entirely metric concept. 1 mil subtends 1 metre at 1000m. What could be simpler!?

Just reset your LRF to read in metres and throw away all the complicated mathematics! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Re: Schmidt & Bender PMII scopes

believe me I am giving this A LOT of thought!!!!

I thin my toughest challenge is when I look down range...

I say ok I need about 5 ft of wind but that is how many meters... my mind ain't programed right

Re: Schmidt & Bender PMII scopes

Ric,

I'm of the Brit generation that grew up when both systems were still in use here so I'm 'bilingual'!

This might help (or might not!):

An easy way to visualise 5ft in metres is to think of your basic 12 inch ruler.

If you have a 'bilingual' ruler, the other side is 30cm. So...think in rulers! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img].

5ft is five 12 inch rulers;

...so 5ft is five 30cm rulers;

5 x 30 is 150cm or 1.5m .....close enough for government work!

Re: Schmidt & Bender PMII scopes

I range in meters, use the mildot for that too. adjust the scope in clicks. I have my balistic cards set up in number of clicks, it wouldn't realy matter if scopes adjusted in inches, centimeters or cabbages, so long as you knew how many to adjust fop whatever range.
But it makes absolutely no sence to me what so ever to have a scope reticle set in Miliradians and then use a totaly different unit of measurement for the adjustment. it just adds another step to the process.
Funnily enough i still judge wind speed in MPH. , but again, ive already pre converted likely required values into clicks, and the clicks corresponding nicely to the ranges just makes it all so easy.
Pete

Brown Dog,
Whats a sixpence? [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

I too grew up with both systems,but did my apprenticeship in imperial and worked for an old fashioned engineering company that converted all its metric drawings to imperial.

Of course metric is an easier system,but feet and inches is what i know.
Its a sad fact though that my daughters are being taught ONLY metric.

Centre Punch.

Re: Schmidt & Bender PMII scopes

Centre punch, forget metric or imperial, it has nothing to do with either. Where you or where you not, taught your ten times table? well then, thats all you need to know. Its probably one of the easiest. its all 1s and 10s.
