I have just ordered a 2-12x50 Z6i and read that the TDS reticle will only calibrate for a certain magnification.  What magnification is the TDS reticle set for on the 2-12X ?

Most of these need to be on the highest setting.

This is what I found on their website.........after some searching!

Although the zero on the main horizontal crosshair will

not change regardless of power setting, you must select

the highest power setting for each range marker

bar to correspond to its distance on the decal. This

is due to the fact that the reticle is mounted in the

second image focal plane. As the power is turned

down the marker bars will indicate further distances

away.

swaro and the zeiss and exbal with nightforce offer a service on line that allows you to "calibrate" your load with the bars. after putting in the information in the on line computer program it will "select" a power that will give the closet fit to the ballistic data. the power may seem weird like 8.6,  you need a code to get into the swaro program the zeiss one is free also read the pdf file from swaro on the tds and their new ballistic reticle, This should give you more insight into the many options of the Z6 set up.
