Determining the Range: 
In the example below, the distance between the top and bottom of the elk's chest is estimated to be 36 inches. Note that in this case 36" measures 2.5 mils.

To determine the range to the elk, align the 36" mark of the Target Size Scale with the measured number of mils (2.5), and then read the range directly opposite the Target Range index mark. In this example, the range is determined to be approximately 400 yards. 

As easy as 1-2-3:

  1. Align target size with measured number of mildots in left window.
  2. Read range to target at arrow. 
  3. Determine bullet drop for rifle and load being used for that range and read sight adjustment in MOA or mils at that bullet drop in right window.
