What in the heck does this even mean? "smallest useful mil marks are 1/2 mil"....There are 3.4377 MOA per mil.
At 100 yards that 3.437 MOA is 3.599 inches or, rounded up to 3.6 inches per mil.
So, since the smallest useful mil marks on most scopes are 1/2 mil that means 1/2 mil is 1.8 inches which is a lot larger than the fine 1/4 MOA marks on target scopes. Want tiny scope marks for aming small? Use MOA scopes with 1/4 MOA hash marks.
Thanks for the tip!Adjust your zero so that your BDC lines up at the altitude you will be hunting at.
If you are aiming up or down slope, just use the BDC as normal and favor slightly low.
At ranges under 500 yards it takes a substantial amount of slope (say, 20+ degrees) to cause a miss.
The difference between flat dope and -20 degrees down slope at 500 yards is less than 1 moa.
