Thanks for that Rich.
The reason I've gone down this route is that even with a £1000 Leupold competition 40x I couldn't range-find as my eyes took a turn for the worse a couple of years ago.
I could take six different readings at the same target and they would be radically different to each other, net result I was back to guessing how far away the target was.
I had a lot of time on my hands (actually on my back) two years ago when I broke my neck (in three places), my back (in three places) & 12 ribs. I got down to designing a reticle that was designed specifically for ranging field targets. I took a little maths & some research. I found a company that specialises in this sort of work & had a glass etched reticle produced. I put it in my scope a fixed 16x Falcon Menace.
I used it last year to come 5th in B Grade for the GP's & 3rd in A Grade for the SWEFTA league.
I hasten to add that this may not seem like top results, but my Steyr failed four times during competition & had to go back for repair four times & I had to use my Weihrauch HW100K for a number of different competitions. I used the same scope all season.
