    Will my MK 4 6.5-20 x 50 thats on the way only have 3.6" mil dots at 10x or will it be 3.6"right through the power range. I thought I read that the new leupold MK 4's worked from the bottom of the magnification rabge through to the top ??

    Regards Paul.

    PC,

    I believe they are calibrated for 20x and no they are not consistant through the entire power range. They have the reticle on the second focal plane.

    Leupold is offering a First Focal plane Mk4 in their 3.5-10 model. My distributors are listing them but do not have them in yet. This scope with the TMR would be an extremely impressive all around big game optical system for hunting out to 1000 yards on big game.

    Thanks Fifty Driver !!

    so how do I know what one mil represents at the other power settings if it's 3.6" at 20x

    [/ QUOTE ]SIMPLE MATHS. If it is 3,6" at 20 then it'll be 7,2" at 10x as an example.

    PC-- it's an inversely proportional equation since as magnification INCREASES, reticle subtension DECREASES, though this is often idealistic, since many manufacturers probably don't put a lot of time into calibrating their magnification rings perfectly. They aren't often used to recalculate a reticle subtension. They're very often close tho.
