Son just bought me a Bushnell Banner Dusk&Dawn 4 Plex, Mil-dot, 3-9x50E. Just looking for an explanation on all the marking on the reticle (inside of the scope) I understand the cross hairs and how to...


Simply put, the Mil-Dot is a way to estimate range with the scopes reticle. This type of reticle was developed for military applications. The space between the dot centers is equal to one milliradian (Mil). hence the name mil-dot. One Mil equals 3.6" inches at 100 yards, or 36" at 1,000 yards. To use this system effectively you must know the size of the target. For instance most people are an average of 6 feet tall or 2 yards. The formula used for determining range to the target is (size of target x 1000 divided by number of mils the target covers). Hope this helps FixYa up.

Cross hair broken on my B S A mil dot 4-16 x 40 scope will any gun shop be able to repair


Yes, more than likely.
The scope just needs to be disassembled and the crosshair flange repaired or replaced.
A dealer should be able to order the part or at least fit one similar enough to work.
The trick is not to allow any moisture into the scope's internal cavity during the repair.

At what power is the 6x24 banner set up for the mil-dot?


The cross hairs don't change with magnification. No matter what you set the power on, the mil dot doesn't change, until you move the cross hairs or dot. Unless they got something new out there I don't know about.

The mil dot - dots do not agree with what they should be according to the detailed info that BSA sent me , nor does it agree with what i have read on the internet about mil-dot ranging.


the mil dot settings are only a guide there not the rule, its all down to what rifle your using and what bullet your fireing the only way to check the mill dot ranging is to test fire at targets till you get the feel of the scope after all if your using a .22 rim fire and get the mil dot ranges then change the rifle to a 308 the mil dot will be well out, i have mil dot scopes but never use the mil dot i gess the hold over/hold under but then i have been shooting for over 50 years now

When you zoom your scope does the impact point change on the target? is that when you use mil dot?


No, the cross hairs remain fixed. The zoom serves only to magnify the field of view.

Here's what you need to know about Mil Dots and rangefinding.

When you look through the scope you should see 5 mil dots on each axis, your scope may have broad lines taking place of the 5th mil dot if it is a "modified" mil dot scope. For measuring purposes, 1 mil is the distance from the center of one dot to the center of the one directly above or below it. 3/4 of a mil is the distance from the top of one dot to the bottom of the one above it, or the "space in between dots". 1/4 mil comprises a single dot, the space between the top of one dot and the bottom of that same dot.

A quick calculation is Size of Target (In Yards) x 1000 / Size of target in mils = Range in Yards

Miliradian or "Mil" is an angular unit of measure, so if you were shooting at 1000 yards and moved up 1 miliradian that would be one inch impact moved up.


Anyway lets say you have a 30" target and we need to find the range... using your scope you place the bottom of the target at the CENTER of a mil dot and count how many mils up, good estimation is key... I'll draw a little text diagram, an asterisk * will be the target top and bottom, and parentheses () will be a mill dot
( * )--------(  )-----*---(  )
Now lets assume the asterisk on the left is the bottom of your target and the one on the right is the top, I put Ten Hyphens in between each dot so if you count from the left you should get about 1.6 Mils. Its real easy to do it in your head, you already know two whole dots is one mil so you just have to estimate whats to the right (or top if you were looking down a scope).

So we know the target is 30" and we have a Mil Reading of 1.6
30/36= .833 so 30" is .833 Yards

So now we can use the equation .833 x 1000 / 1.6 = 520.6 Yards is the distance of the target


Now you can also use Mil dots to do hold over for when the target moves or for wind and elevation but that gets extremely complicated.

There are many books and websites to confirm what I've said here, but the best way is to go out to your range and talk to some long range shooters and show them your rifle/scope etc and get hands on help.
