Nice one Brian, any chance of putting all the mill dot zeroing targets up in pdf please mate. I can't get on the old website any more!

Ooops sorry Si, didn't see your post until this morning.

I've put a new page up on the Anston site with all the ranged targets on it from 8 yards to 55 yards just for you mate.

HFT zeroing and practice targets

Hi Brian
I have just finished reading your fascinating and incredibly informative article on range finding in HFT.
I'm old in years , but a complete novice in HFT having just joined a local club (NASGARC) (scotland).
Is there a format for printing out a data free copy of the butler creek insert you use , into which i could input my data as i have an air arms sl510 which is .22 calibre .
Would it be difficult to transcribe the data format from a mildot scope to a sr6 reticle scope my scope is a hawke tactical ir 4.5-14x38
Thank you
Bill

Hi Chaps

Sorry I haven't updated this series for a while, I haven't shot an HFT comp for a while now and due to a recent back injury I haven't been doing a lot of shooting at all lately.

On the plus side, I have had a bit of time to sit down and write some more stuff - I've just added a new article on how to use my ranged mildot targets :-

> Zeroing your scope for all ranges <

and I'm currently working on the next article which will be all about how to range find in HFT using your parallax.

Dunno how relavant this is now days as I haven't shot in an UKAHFT events for a while, but I've got some time on my hands and I noticed that the range finding manual I wrote years ago still seems to get plenty of downloads - it's about time I updated it with some better methods and a bit more explanation.

If I've missed out something or made any mistakes, please let me know

Thanks
Brian

To be fair, this is the best guide I have ever read regarding how to set up a scope, time for a new printer cartridge methinks...........

There's a new article covering range finding using your scope's parallax and the mk1 eyeball.

Please let me know if I've got anything wrong or left something important out.

You're very welcome, I think I'm long overdue for another article actually - I think it was due to be advanced prone.
