    With the Leupold® Boone and Crockett™ Big Game Reticle.

    Has anyone got the measured values between the center cross hair and the lower cross bars at 100 yards.

    I need these measurements to calculate a proper drop chart for a mate and his 7mm-08 using the Leupold aiming marks.

    What measurement are you looking for??? Actual shot placement while holding on either crosshair...or the visual spread between the two at 100 yds when viewing at 100 yds?

    Being a SFP the power setting impotant. Leupold gives 2 sets of values One for Large bullet drop(Big triangle)and one for small(small triangle) Align the desired trangle with the mark for the following in moa of elevation

    • ............................Big............................. small
    • Cross hair............ 0
    • First bar ..............2.19............................ 2.74
    • Second bar .........4.8 ...............................6.0
    • Third ...................6.26 ............................7.83
    • Top of post......... 7.82............................ 9.78
    So for example If your using the large triangle which IIRC is full magnification then holding on the third bar will give 6.26 moa of elevation

    What I am after is the visual spread between the marks at 100 yards at the maximum magnification or whatever the magnufication the ranging mark is set for.

    eg, on the Burris 3-9 scope with ballistic plex. At 9 power the distance between the marks is given at 100yards. I just need this information.
    Thanks.

    I use one for a 300 Win Mag. The cross hairs are 200, the next is 300, then 400, the small hash is 450, and the top of the post is 500. For a caliber such as the 300 Ultra, you would add 100 yards to all of the above and sight it in for 300 yards.

    Ok Thanks.
    I have got these bars sorted out. Now I can play with the figures and Exbal to come up with a good zero for the rifle and plots for each triangle marker.

    Its easy when you have good help.....Thanks.
