Most will use a range finder, but one can use the reticles in the scope with pretty good accuracy http://www.8541tacti...ng_formulas.php One does need to know the target size or have a pretty good estimate, also, one needs to know if your reticles are based on milradians or minute of angle or inches per hundred yds. Also, turn your scope to the power it was calibrated at. Try it, it does work, and one can get pretty quick at it

I use my bushnell 1500 rangefinder but am slowing switching out scopes to all mildot. They are so multipurpose without having the confusion of a lot of diff numbers and charts and graphs cluttering up the second focal plane. I wanna try ranging with it an comparing to my rf, I hadnt done tha t yet.
