A friend noted that his M 98 8X57 Mauser with 196 gr ammunition is for practical purposes ballistically identical to a 6.8 SPC.  He asked me if there is a scope with a ballistic reticle that "matches" the 6.8 ballistics.  If so he could use it on the Mauser.  I'm a scope novice so I'm not sure his quesiton even makes sense.  It was understanding that any sclope with a ballistic reticle could be used on any rifle, but I don't know if that is the case.   Could someone please illuminate us on this one?

this is a confusing issue. a ballistic reticle can be used with any caliber, but the bars won't necessarily coincide with 100 yds, 200 yds etc.  a "calibrated reticle" will have the impacts at these ranges for that load. 6.8 is very close to 308 and most of these should work, or have turrets made by kenton or leo for the ballistics of the one you want. If you want to play with the entire project get a ballistic program and one can substitue values (simulations) in the program to determine the sight in range on any ballistic reticle that will provide pretty close approx to 1st bar=200, 2nd 300 etc.

might add-- the hit zone can extend as many inches up and down for the target as you wish thus extending the usefulness of this type of approach. two ways to think of this -- imagine the hit zone as a circular area moving along the distance axis from the high point of the trag. to the low point or imagine it as an ellpsoid (a continous arguement) covering all the surface area with one end on the high point and the other on the low.

If the ballistics closely match the ballistics of the .308, the Zeiss Rapiz-z1000 may be a pretty good match. If I remember correctly the -Z1000 was designed for the ballistics of the .308, but don't hold me to it.
