Scot Laughlin's Custom All Weather 2260

2260 with short crosman receiver atop a mini riser made from aluminum tube. Barrel is a 2200 soda straw
tensioned inside a titanium golf club shaft. Three screw mod to the trigger, bulk co2, SSP 250 rear cocking
striker assembly. Factory stock, reshaped, bedliner finish and stick on cheek piece. The idea was a weather
resistant light hunter for rainy days.
I've got a Cothran stainless receiver and gas tube waiting for me to get back to this one.

Measuring Mildot spacing....???

an extensive search of s acouple forums, and googling didnt turn up what I'm looking for

I need to be able to measure/calculate the dot spacing on the reticle itself. Its not listed in the miniscle users guide that came with the scope

This scope has hash ticks/lines instead of dots. Chairgun wants to know the dot to dot spacing for its math.

google did turn up how to use the dots to range a en elk, mountain goats and the headlight spacing on a Hudson coupe, but nothing to say how far apart the dots/hashes are in the reticle itself

One thing Ive thought of, is to take one shot at 10 yards using the "center" dot , raise or lower the scope one dot/tick and shot at the same aim point. Then meausure that CtC distance and multiply that by 10 to give a 100 yard spacing.

Example: my 10 yard spacing ctc is .39 inches. times 10 (for the 100 dot to dot spacing) thus giving 3.9 for the dot to dot spacing.

yes no maybe?

EDIT: Update...... using a search term of "mil dot calibration" on the Yellow's FT sub-froum got a lot more hits, including Ray's write up (see below)
