Discuss Leupold, Bushnell, Swarovski, Weaver & more. Need advice on a scope for your firearm? We can help!
I have a Nikon Prostaff Target EFR 3-9x40AO scope.
On the Nikon Spot On page, the reticule of that scope shows a distance measurement at various magnifications next to the bottom vertical post.
What distance does this number reflect?
I e-mailed Nikon support with this question and the answer I got back from Ed was, "This would be the distance for the top of post."
I have know idea what he's talking about. Distance is the measurement between two points isn't it?
Can anyone shed any light on this?
That measurement is the yards from the top of the post of the reticle for your hold over. Say your zero is 100 yards and you are shooting Game_shok Copper plated HP 22 LR's, the first choice listed, that top of post measuremnet is 149 yards. That means if you wanted to shoot at 149 yards(ish), you just need to hold over the top of the post on your target at 149 yards.
Hope this helps.
