I am getting a Kollmorgen Bear Cub 4x32(?) with a parkerized finish that has a reticle I have not seen before but thought was interesting and had to have to fill some 26mm mounts I have on a Sako.  It is a single verticle post from the bottom to middle with two circles, one inside the other, in the center.  Any info would help, even if it is to tell me I am a noob and these were once common.  How could I figure out the MOA of them?  I am only used to typical crosshairs, and I could not find anything searching.

Looks like the vertical line is there so you can see whether you missed to the left or to the right. Big Smile

To check the MOA of the circles I would set out a measuring tape at 100 yds and see what the diameters are. 1" would equal one MOA. (Well, 1.047" to be more exact).

Thanks for the tip, now I have another use for the freebie wooden rulers I have.
