Question about Sport & Outdoor - Others

# Hi, I have a Kurt Muller 3x-9x40 rifle scope on a 300 savage model 99. The problem is it is blurry and I cannot figure out how to adjust the power. Thanks in advance for any help thanks. Jim.

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.

Go to this link & you will be able to zero it. If you lower the angle of telescope you will be targetting farther. vice versa. aqeelhafeez@hotmail.com

There should be a set screw or screw that you can loosen to make that adjustment. Once you have it where you like it, just tighten it back up and enjoy you ability to make those quick adjustments when needed.
