I have a custom shop tasco in 8-40x56 mil dot. 

At what power is the mil dot supposed to be correct?

 

Great scope so far.  I picked it up from SWFA 3 years ago and am just getting around to some serious shooting with it.

 

Thanks,

Tom

I don't know, but you can find out for yourself by taking a 2x2 or other similiar size piece of wood and painting a 4-inch checkerboard along it (say, putting white on first then using masking tape for the contrasting color (orange, red or blacks works fine).  I've also made a grid-paper pattern using MS Paint with four inch squares.  Place the 4-inch pattern at 104 yards and adjust your power ring, once you have a 4-inch interval centered perfectly between two mildots (that is the exact centers of the dots) you will know what power it is set up for.

I finally got to the range to test this scope.  The Mildot measures correctly at 10X.

Now I am ready to bust some bacon in south Texas!

There are many simple ways as noted above.  We use this mil dot assurance target.  Its a good idea for any 2nd focal plane scope.  Find out where your reticle is working and mark the power knob and body.  Some scopes say to put the scope on 10x but the marking on the knob may not be correct with the true optical 10x.

 

Download and print target

 

Besides being a nice target, this one allows you to check the accuracy of the dot spacing on your mil-dot reticle scope. To get an accurately sized printout with this .pdf format target, make sure that the "Fit to page" check-box is NOT checked in the Adobe Acrobat print dialog box.

 

One milliradian (the center-to-center distance between mil-dots) is equal to 3.6 inches at 100 yards. The distance from the center of the target to the edges of the large square is 3.6 inches in all four directions. The points of the diamonds are spaced at , , and milliradian intervals, assuming the target is at 100 yards. At 50 yards, the diamond points are at , 1, and 1 milliradian intervals, with the target edge at 2 milliradians. The grid is at intervals.

Thanks for the cool target.

I drew up one on CAD with lines for each mildot spaced for 104 yards (the 100 yard line at my range)  I printed it full size so I could verify 5 mildots and be able to see the detail well on the paper.  It was accurate right near 10X, so I marked the power ring with a paint pen.  I also made a mark around 20X to have another reference point for really distant targets.  I was able to range a target at 1400 yards and verify both ways on my trip to Texas.  Turns out the boar I shot was at only 42 yards!  Oh well, I am ready for anything now. 

 

Thanks,

Tom
