With this set up most middle range targets are cross hair top, middle or bottom of kill then with targets 10 yards or closer or 38 yards or further use the mil dot in top, middle or bottom of kill! Seems to work for me ?
Cheers for that, much appreciated.

I was getting there with my testing last week. My rough figures were very similar to yours -

Nothing outside a mildot of holdover and most just aiming at middle or above of kill zone and everything was going down (off the bench obviously). - thanks for the 20 - 24 bit. I had missed that as I was just doing short and long and then zero distance and further out always forget about that ballistic curve bit for the lower middle ranges.

Kind Regards
