    I have some useful info for you:

    There are two ARC (Angle Range Compensation) modes and one REGULAR mode. The two ARC modes are BOW mode and RIFLE mode.
    To select between these modes, first turn the unit “ON” by pressing and releasing the POWER button.
    Next, press and hold the MODE button for five seconds. The “SETUP” display icon will light and the current compensation mode will be identified by either the “BOW” symbol ( ), the “RIFLE symbol ( ) lit with one of the ballistic groups (A thru J) displayed and flashing, or no indicators lit and the message ( ) flashing in the bottom of the LCD.
    The modes can be cycled through in a circular fashion by pressing and releasing the mode button. The order of modes is a follows: BOW, RIFLE A, RIFLE B, RIFLE C, RIFLE D, RIFLE E, RIFLE F, RIFLE G, RIFLE H,RIFLE I, RIFLE J, REG, etc. When the bow selection is displayed, the “BOW” icon will flash and when a “RIFLE: selection is displayed, the “RIFLE” icon will be steady, but the ballistic group will be flashing toward the bottom of the LCD. When the ( ) is displayed, the message ( ) will flash near the bottom of the LCD. Once the desired distance compensation mode is displayed, select it by pressing and releasing the POWER button. Following this selection, the current unit of measure, “Y” for yards or “M” for meters will
    flash in the LCD and the SETUP icon is still lit. Pressing the MODE button will toggle the unit of measure.
    When the desired unit of measure is displayed, press the POWER button to accept the unit of measure and to return to the normal operating menu. Upon returning to the normal operating menu, the current compensation mode and unit of measure will be identified in the LCD.

    If in RIFLE mode, the ballistic group will be displayed in the bullet drop numeric field anytime that the primary numeric display is showing dashes (i.e. no target acquired). When a target is acquired in RIFLE mode, the line of sight distance will display in the secondary numeric displays. The “IN” icon (i.e. inches)will light next to the bullet drop numeric display, if the unit of measure is set to Yards (Y). If the unit of measure is set to Meters (M), the bullet drop will be calculated and displayed in centimeters and the “IN” icon will be turned off. If the bullet drop / hold over number is blinking, this means the user should
    add 100 to the number blinking.

If I ran 880 yards in 120 seconds, how long would it take me to run 800 meters?

I don't agree with just supplying you with the answer, but I will explain how it is done. That way you actually learn something from asking the question. Fair?

First you have to convert the 880 yards into metres. This page will help you.

divide 120 by the number of metres after the conversion and that will tell you how long it takes you to run 1 metre. Multiply that by 800 for your answer.

40.3 square metres is how many cubic metres n how many cubic yards

Square metres is a measure of area. Cubic metres and cubic yards is a measure of volume. There is no conversion between them without a third dimension.

Consider a storeroom that's 40.3 square metres in area. How much stuff can you store in it? Well, that depends on how high the ceiling is. If the ceiling is 2 metres high then the volume of the room is 80.6 cubic metres. If the ceiling is 3 metres high then the volume is 120.9 cubic metres.

One cubic metre is about 1.31 cubic yards.

What distance to zero 0.22 rifle ?

When I zeroed mine I did it at 25 yards ironsight, and 50 yards scoped. The effective range isn't that far on the standard .22 but in the end it comes down to personal preference.

I would like to convert yards to metres example 2390yards how many metres and 144 yards how many metres

  • 1 Understand the formula. Converting units of measurements always requires a specific formula. The procedure from yards to meters is X (yards) multiplied by "0.9144" meters.
  • 2 Write your formula with the number of yards. Multiply by "0.9144." For example, 100 yards * 0.9144 =?.
  • 3 Use a calculator. In the example above, 100 yards * 0.9144 =?, the answer is 91.44 meters.

Ihave a nikon scope that I have sent back 3 times It pareflex, can not get set .

Parallax error is something that could be different in 2 people. What might be ok to some, will be a nightmare to others. Most scopes are set to parallax at 100 yards, but if you set up your rifle where it wont move, vice, box, pads, peek through the scope to a target at 50 yards, move your head back and forth, up and down, do the crosshairs move with you? How about 25 yards, 100 yards? where it doesn't move is where it is set, and where you find the most accuracy in your scope. It is not hard to hold steady, once you get the hang of it, instead of moving your head to set the crosshairs, anchor your rifle to your cheek and shoulder and move your rifle to the target. There are volumes of material written about this stuff. . Hope this helps.
