    Hello all,

    I have a Zeiss Conquest 6.5 x 20 50mm mil dot reticle. This I know is a 2nd Focal Plane Scope and the mil dot really only works on 1 certain power. On another forum(found below) it stated, "10 power, from center of dot to the center of the next dot represents 3.6" at 100 yards."

    Does this mean that at 20x power the center to center is 7.2" @ 100 yards and like wise 5x power 1.8" @ 100 Yards?

    Also does it mean @ 200 yards for 10x power the mil dot is 7.2"?

    Is this worth the buy a Mil Dot Master? thankyou

    I am trying to understand better and there is not a lot of info for varying powers. If it can be explained or a general ratio that actually works for the distance and amount between the dots.

    Past forum:

    Thanks for any insight you can give me that will help me understand better!

    The first one you have backwards.
    The second is correct.
    And yes a mildot master is worth it.

    If you are trying to convert mils to moa or inches it is going to drive you nuts.

    Thanks for the reply!

    Just to clear it up @ 20x power at 100 yards the mils will be 1.8" and at 5x power it will be 7.2". Easy enough.

    I suggest that you try the following to make the learning curve a little easier. Turn the magnification to 18X. Then the sub tension between dot centers will be 2" at 100 yds (2 IPHY). That scope has IPHY turrets, so you end up with an IPHY reticle matched to IPHY turrets at a very useable long range magnification of 18X.

    This way, you won't need to fiddle with a mildot master to get started shooting long distance.
