Swarovski scope specs say the following about the Z6 scope. 

Max. elev./wind adjustment range (in/100 yds. / m/100 m)
for a 5 x 30 x 50mm = 0.18'/5'
for a 3 x 18 x 50mm = 0.18'/5'
for a 2.5 x 15 x 44 = 0.36/10
for a 2 x 12 x 50 = 0.36/10

What do the quantities to the right of the equals sign mean?
Excuse my ignorance. I need to be enlightened. Thanks. Al

I believe it means each click is .18 inches at 100 yards or 5mm at 100 meters.
