Just been reading the excellent thread on Range finding for HFT but I'm a little confused (Very easy, believe me) What is a true mildot?
I thought ( and read) that a mildot is a representation of 36"@1000yds, The military say the average man is 6ft (below average for me, again
) so if a man covers exactly 2mildots, then he's exactly 1000yds away.
I use a computor program called Mil-Dot RangeFinder, you input a target size and the scope mag (10x in my case) and then drag the bottom of a circle (representing the target size) down a Mildot reticle, the top of the circle being fixed at the crosshair centre, watching the range window at the side, you can read what range the circle is covering in mildots.
You can also input the MOA/DOT @10mag, I've always put in 3.6 but there's a button underneith saying "true Mildot", when pushed it changes the 3.6 to 3.438? So which is it 3.6 or 3.438??????
If it matters any, im using a Falcon menace 10x42 MP20
