For proper trajectory compensation does the mil-dot system on the new Nikon Monarch's have to be used at a certain magnification?

Or can it be used at any magnification range?

I have a Burris Ballistic plex and I have to use it at a specific magnification for it to work properly and I'd like

to find out if the mil-dot system works on the same principle.

Welcome to The OT!!

 

Not sure if this helps, but my 6.5-20x Monarch "milled" properly @ 12x.

The new Monarch scopes have a setting on the magnification ring that says "MIL" (I believe this is where 12x should be) so that there isn't any guesswork.

ballistic compensation systems are progressive, while mildot or moa systems have fixed distance between them , what mag. they work for ranging is another question. FFP any mag, SFP will be marked on the ring. trajectory compensation with either mildot or ballastic compensation is still another question. SFP will cause poi changes increasing with decreasing mag, and vice versa. usually these errors are only observable with large range variables and gun/load combinations showing wide variances at long range. SFP can easily be recalibrated by simple usually any object on known ht. and measuring the subtension of the mil or ballistic and marking it on the ring. ranging then can be be done on that magnification for any known ht. Not having to do This is touted advantage to FFP range systems, but not that big of a deal once you practice and use the other.
