Good guide and illustration Brian, though I'd be more interested in the top of lower post to the kill as a measurement as I find trying to bracket the kill is not as accurate as using a bigger target.

I never understand people that dismiss bracketing as an accurate ranging method, like anything it's as accurate as you want it to be except that you don't have temperature or light considerations.

Tank gunners have used the bracketing method of ranging since WW2 and even today with laser ranging they still have a reticle to allow bracketing in case all the electronics go West.
Snipers/artillery have a nasty habit of disabling tank targeting systems, so to have a fool-proof manual back up is essential.
