Re: MOA/Mills???

If you have an IPhone or IPod touch there are a handful of ballistic applications that work pretty well also. If you are interested in reading a good write up on Mil/MOA http://www.usoptics.com/index.php?page=faq this link will give you a very good explanation...along with formulas for ranging.

Re: MOA/Mills???

Here is a real simple form. to figure out mil value at any range

Range x 36 = mil value in inches

ex. .300 x 36 = 10.8 .522 x 36 = 18.8 1.200 x 36 = 43.2

Medic--that dope u see is for my 65 SGK load out of my AR-15 using this TK Lee reticle--

It's a 3 MOA system between dots and 4 MOA windage. Just run the ballistics program and calculate the drop and windage in MOA. For example if say the drop for 450 yds. is 5.0 MOA then that's 2 MOA more than the 1st dot, and since there is 3 MOA between dots then 2/3=0.7. So the dope would be 1.7. Then calculate windage the same. See how it works?

I picked up a Palm Zire 72 off ebay for cheap and stuck the Pejsa program on there. It is unbelievable how accurate it is.

the whole setup cost me around \$65 or so.

I do the same this as you sscoyote, flip cap ballistics for quick adjustments.
