This is a set of targets calibrated for MIL or MOA at 100 meters.
This digital file is designed to be printed (we have used Warehouse Stationaries Duraprint in the past) with no scaling – this is imperative!
There is two versions of MIL and MOA – one inverted.
Which one you use depends on whether you want to put the scope into a ransom rest type situation and not actually shoot at the target, or, if you prefer to actually dial and shoot the target.
If you are using a ransom rest and not shooting, use the version that starts at the top. As you dial, the reticle will move down.
If you plan on shooting the target, use the more ‘standard’ orientation and your projectile will land higher as you dial out.
The target has two elements two it – the ‘tall target’ test – where you can check that the dials on your scope match real-world measurements, and account for that in your ballistic software (how they account for this differs) as well as a ‘box’ test. Start on the main aim point, then dial left, up, right, down and back to the centre. This is a good way to check the scope dials repeatably and accurately. Do a couple of rounds and check you end up where you started!
