How does the Rapid Z work? Is it like a lot of other scopes that are preset for the .308 cartridge and a specific load?
The different Rapid-Z reticles are designed for different cartriges. The Rapid-Z 1000 was designed specifically for the .308. The rapid-z 600 for most non magnum rounds, and rapid-z 800 for magnums. The varmint reticle works with the smaller 22-250, .220 swift. ect. You can check out your load, and how it will work with Zeiss's Rapid-Z calculator. You can adjust where the marks correspond to yardage by adjusting the magnification. It's a pretty slick system. I shoot from 300-700 yards at a 10" steel gong and never touch a thing, and if I miss, it is my fault. I know, my gong is bigger than your clay pigeons, but trial and error, any you could figure it out quickly.
Look for the link to the calculator, and plug in your load. Hit optimize.
