    I just bought a new scope with mil reticle and mil knobs and want to make sure this is right, it seems right to me from what I have learned about mils. But just asking, the windage is far the drift.

    That didn't post right, here is some of the data
    100 yards zero
    300 yards -0.6 mil
    500 yards -1.8 mil
    700 yards -3.3 mil
    1000 yards -6 mil

    Just wondering if that sounds about right, he thinks I made a mistake on the jbm calculator

    just wondering, -216 inches at 1000 would be correct I think even though I won't be shooting that far I'm just wondering if we did it right. Any links to pages with info on mils would be great also.

    Thanks

    Seems to me that it might drop more than that, but I could be wrong.
