    I did some bracketing in the garden yesterday on k/z sizes 15,20,25,30&40mm but I'm thinking I should do 35mm too. Some of the differences are so minute it seems impossible to tell between 35 & 40yrds (25mm k/z reading 0.6mildot for both!). Scope is on 7x mag & paralax set to 25yrs. I guess I need to read blur when judging these further distance?
    I haven't done any bracketing for the target sizes yet I'll try to do that today. As these are much bigger I'm hoping it will give greater differences on the mildots. I'll also try side by side readings for a half md hawke scope to see if that helps reading.
    Thanks

    Great article but the download link for the targets isn't working for me. Are you still able to download the targets ?

    If trying to bracket kill zones 7 magnification is too low you need at least 10 magnification to see any small differences. And even at that not too easy but it is a tool to have in your ranging box.
    Also use blurr can be your friend too if you spend time with your scope.
    Also know the course setters rules for what kill zone size can go at what distance you be surprised how many poeple shoot HFT and don't know the rules.
    Bracket targets most targets have something in common no matter the face plate.
    Also improving your range judgment with your eyes
    All of the above takes time so no quick fixes here
    Put in the practice with some knowledge and scores will get better
    Also positionals need practice if you want to improve scores too.

    Great article Brian- just started and I know exactly what you mean regarding the set up, just made that mistake at Fort last week, but we live and learn.
    Regards
