I have a Simmons 44 mag mildot rifle scope.  6-24x44 SF model (447703).  Anyone know the proper power setting that would be synchronized with the mildot reticle?

Deadon-
 
With sot SFP the subtensions are accurate on the highest mag.
 
Take for instance the Vortex Viper PST 2.5-10x44.
In order to use it correctly, you have to subtend on 10X.
 
I went to look in the manual, but it is not listed.
I would suggest calling Bushnell and speak with one of their techs about which mag will allow you to subtend correctly.
 
Bushnell's telephone number is 1(800)423-3537.

Skylar,
Thank you for the reply.  I called Bushnell and they told me the correct power setting is 12.  They said most variable scopes now being manufactured have a different color number so people will know that is the power setting it needs to be on in order to be in sync with the mildot reticle.

Another thing they will go is put a red mark on the chassis to indicate the correct power as well.
Thanks for sharing

I have this scope but mine is just 6-21 power. Today I was able to set up and this is where mine is set as close as I can get it to true mil. I set up 2 pre-measured targets and checked the scope. Doing the math a 36" tall target is 10 mil at 100 yards and 2 mil at 500 yards. I sand bagged the rifle and  by "eye balling" it through the scope this is where mine was set after adjusting the zoom.
