5. Mildot Enterprises


Mildot Master

Mildot Enterprises #ad - No entry of data or operations through a keypad is necessary, as the device is purely analog and only requires the alignment of figures on scales. No complex calculations for determination of telescopic sight adjustment or hold-over at various ranges are necessary, as the scales of the device convert drop/drift figures directly into both MOA and mils.

No memorization of formulae is necessary, as the correct formulae are built into the scales. No separate data sheet is necessary for bullet drop figures, as the reverse side of the device is designed to accommodate either commercially available data decals or user-produced data strips. No conversion of estimated target size from inches into decimal equivalent of yards is necessary, as the Target Size Scale is in increments of feet and inches.
