That's a great tip, Chris.

On a 2.5-8 it's CDS for me. M1's look goofy on those. I'm ok with being "limited" to ~600 yds on my 2.5-8 equipped rifles.

(ok, dumb question. Does the zero stop physically prevent a guy from dialing past one revolution?)

Well thats what I did Jeff, ordered the 3.5-10 with the M1 and the 2.5-8 with the CDS and in MOA marked like chris84 showed. Thought it may fit better on the smaller scope and little Model 7. Just really don't plan on going past 600yds with it.. Plus if I don't like it for $89.99 I can change it out..

Ok, stupid question here. On the M1 like chris posted, what do the numbers stand for?

1= 1 moa? 1/4 inch at 100, yes?
2= 2 moa? 1/4 inch at 200, yes?
and so on?

1=1moa (~1" at 100yds, ~2" at 200yds, . . .)
2=2moa (~2" at 100yds, ~4" at 200yds, . . .)
. . .

first the basics, 1= 1 moa and then what does each of the 3 lines between 1 and 2 equal, 1/4" as in 1/4 inch per click?

If I needed to come up 3 inches, (3 moa) I would dial to #3, yes?

Your example is correct @ 100 yds.

Assuming you are zero'd at 100 yards. If you needed to come up 3":
At 200 yds, come up 1.5 MOA
At 300 yds, come up 1.0
At 400 yds, come up 0.75

Get the idea?

Or think about it like this -

Take how many inches you need to come up, and divide by the # of hundreds of yards. Remember though that MOA is not exactly 1" at 100yds, actually 1.047" if I remember right this early. So not a big deal 'til you start getting out there a bit.

Examples - need to come up 6" at 300yds, 6/3 = 2MOA up; 18" at 400yds, 18/4 = 4.5MOA up.

Make sense?

Was thinking of replacing my scope with a VX-3 CDS, but seeing how prices went back up I might just send in the VXII (suffix V) for a turret. Has the LR duplex, which is good for some loads, but not all and want to spin it when it calls for it. Hmmmm...
