The Leupold Mil Dot and Tactical Milling Reticle:
The Leupold® Mil Dot and Tactical Milling Reticle (TMR®) employ a system based on the subtension of one milliradian (mil) from the center of one dot (Mil Dot) or full hash mark (TMR) to the center of the next dot or full hash mark. This subtension also applies from the center of the reticle to the center of the first dot or full hash mark in any direction.The principle behind Leupold’s TMR is to expand on existing mil dot reticle designs by offering users more ranging tools in the form of various sized and various spaced aiming points on the horizontal and vertical stadia. This allows greater ranging and shooting precision than all previous range estimating reticle systems. The TMR reticle subtends exactly like all existing mil dot reticles and generations thereof, but with greater accuracy. Aside from mil hash marks, the TMR reticle offers areas of .2 mil subdivisions to precisely measure the common one meter target quickly from 500 to 1,000 meters and beyond. This has previously been the most difficult task in long-range shooting, since this entire range lies in the span between one and two mils. The position of the .2 mil subdivisions are intentionally placed on the periphery of the fine crosshair in order to keep the central area clutter free. All existing mil dot calculations and formula tools are compatible with the Leupold TMR design.
THE USE OF A MIL DOT OR TMR RETICLE
To use the Mil Dot or TMR reticle, you must know the actual size of the target.1. View the target through the scope.2. Place the center of the crosshair against one edge (top, bottom, or either side) of the target so that the crosshair extends along either its width or height.3. Using the dots or hash marks, measure along the crosshair to the opposite edge of the target.If the center of the crosshair is against one edge of the target and the opposite edge of the target is positioned behind the center of the second mil mark, the target measures 2 mils. If it is exactly between the second and third mil mark, it measures 2.5 mils, etc. The more specific you are in your estimation of the size of the target in mils (2.75 mils, etc.), the more accurate your results will be. This is especially important in estimating the range of a small target or in estimating the range of a target at a great distance (i.e. beyond 500 yards). Once the measurement of the target has been determined in mils, the range can be estimated. This can be done in two ways; either by consulting the charts in this manual or by using the following formula:(Height of Target in Yards x 1,000) ÷ Height of Target in Mils = Range of the Target in YardsThis formula will also give results in metric terms if meters instead of yards are used in the equation.For your convenience, Leupold has included range estimating tables (see Tables 1-8). To use these tables, locate the actual size of the target along the top of the table and the apparent size of the target, as measured in mils, along the side of the table. Follow both until they converge. This is the estimated distance to the target.
Once you have estimated the distance to the target with the reticle, there are two primary methods of using this information. Both require that you know the specific bullet drop of the ammunition you are using.
Light reflecting off lens surfaces diminishes image quality. So Leupold® engineers developed Multicoat 4®, our own proprietary lens coating system to keep image quality pristine. Multicoat 4 greatly increases the amount of all available light that reaches your eye, while at the same time, it minimizes the reflections of the sky on the outer eyepiece. You’ll never be able to control the light, but with Leupold’s Multicoat 4, you can always make the most of it.
2nd Generation Argon/Krypton Waterproofing
While we still waterproof other optics with bone-dry nitrogen – technology pioneered by Leupold® – Select models feature our exclusive, proprietary Argon/Krypton gas blend. Its advantages are two fold: it nearly eliminates the effects of thermal shock, and the Argon/Krypton molecules are significantly larger than nitrogen molecules, reducing the diffusion of gases sealed inside your scope even more than our proven nitrogen technology already does. We pioneered riflescope waterproofing, and now with Argon/Krypton we’re exceeding the standards we set ourselves.
