So when you have marked all the ranges on the wheel you can then focus on any target and the mark on the parallax ring/wheel will indicate the correct distance. You can then work out your aimpoint/dialling.
The higher the mag, the better this works.
Hope this helps.
All the best
hello Alec! of course, we do the same way with any of our scopes, all of us use the parallax as a virtual "telemeter". my question goes more to the magnifing range at every target distance.
Just as an example, with my EdGun Matador or my Talon SS ToGo both .22 and almost 960ft/sec with 15,9 JSBīs i use no more than 12x up to 20Mt and 24x from 20 to 50 Mt.
Again this ONLY in HFT and our promotional category... (iīm thinking about our silluettes... all of them seem be build to Powder Guns! hahaha to thick for long lasting use.
Now waiting for a couple of 16 joule rifles here, is like a new start for all of us, imagine that, there are ONLY 6 to 10 A EV2 in our country! and a couple of Daystate, FX and Theoben.
Some "fellas" ask me to get some more rifles for us. all of them are charmed whit the "new" category
