What is the factory MD power setting on the 6-18x40 Nikon Buckmaster scope?
As far as i know all the Nikon's are 12x--
No matter what it's listed at you need to check it yourself.
I was looking at buying one, i was not sure what the MD setting was. Has anyone 'done the math' with thus scope and use the 18x power setting?
Absolutely. I never apply a scope for rangefinding at a lower than highest power. Mine calcs out , AND MEASURES 2.4 IPHY @ 18x (dots become ~1/2" instead of 3/4's at cald. power). Mine is used for rangefinding and windage (turret for elevation) at this power for prairie dogs out to ~500 yds. on this 17 Fireball XP--
I gave up trying to use mine for rangefinding on Pdogs. Them critters are just too small.
I've only used mine once to try and range them, but conditions were hot and i was in an uncomfortable prone position laying on rocks. Was still able to get within ~10 % of lasered out to about 300 yds. or so most of the time. IMO, it's still considerably better than guessing.
