Hi;
Been out of the scope loop for a while, too much going on in life..... and not much money...
Looking to buy a scope for a 6.5 Creedmoor. It will only be a hunting rifle, mainly for white tail deer.
I'm not certain that I'm going to use the Weaver, it is pretty heavy....
But I'm not educated enough to understand why Weaver used a .36" click value for the windage and elevation adjustments, will someone please enlighten me on this?
Thanks: John

.36" equates to 1/10 mil. as used in the tactical scopes with mildot reticles. Mildots are 3.6" moa apart. It takes a little thinking if you're "programmed" to think MOA.

Its allows for matching reticle to knobs. So basically if you shoot and your reticle says your .5 mil low, then you just turn 5 clicks, (each click being .1 mil)  and you should be on the mark. Its easier than saying well there is 3.6 minutes in a mil, so half of that would be  1.8 minutes, so if you hou had .25moa clicks then you have to dial 7 clicks.
Matching the reticle and knobs makes thing easier. if you got mil based reticle then you want mil knobs. MOa reticle then you want Moa knobs

Thanks for the answers. I should have guessed this myself.... 
I have a Nikon Tactical Scope with Mil dot reticle. As far as I know, it is incremented in 1/4 MOA...
Just wondering... I think the latest Monarchs with mil dot reticle, are also incremented in 1/4 MOA too?
Thanks: John

Yes. Both the standard Monarch and the "X" have 1/4 MOA clicks.

That's the way a lot of scopes used to be...and some still are. Any new (to you) scope that you acquire should have turrets that match the reticle. It really is a game changer, even on an SFP scope.

Thanks for the updated info....
I sure like the Weaver for the money, but I'm afraid that the person I'm setting the gun up for will not like the weight....

Not to my knowledge either.  I will have to double check in the morning.

Yes, I have one of the older Nikon Tactical scopes "prior to the Monarch X" and it too has Mil dot reticle with windage & elevation adjustments incremented at 1/4 MOA per click.
