Was recently looking over the Nikon catalog, and on their Tech. Specs. pg. they give mil-dot stadia subtensions (dot, and dot to dot subtension) at the calibrated magnification, lowest magnification and highest magnification. This is very helpful for the guy that owns a Nikon mil-dot scope, since it allows use of the mil-dot at either of the 3 magnifications, for reticle ranging, and horizontal and vertical trajectory reference, and can be calculated really for any magnification since their power rings follow the "inversely proportional second focal plane reticle subtension vs. power ring rule," if u will, that all scope's power rings should be calibrated correctly for, but unfortunately many are not.

Thanks, SS.

 

 

Making only FFP reticle scopes, especially "variable-tactical models", would solve a ton of problems.
