Carl Quick's LiteWieght 2240

So for about the last 24 months, I've had her on a serious diet. Now I am happy to report that she lost nearly 13 ounces and is feeling so much better. And let me say one thing, when I pick her up with one hand now she is light as a feather. Well, almost a feather.

Things I have done so far:

OEM main tube was lightened by me.
Barrel is OEM and trimmed down by me.
Main tube plug is made of Delrin by me.
Gas cap is aluminum, comes from HPA and bored out by me.
Hammer is made from Delrin by me with a modified 1701P striker.
Valve is an aluminum Disco rear end with a brass Pro-Top by Anthony.
Trigger grip frame is aluminum by Bluefork Design and then hogged out by Gregg.
Front barrel band is aluminum, made by Anthony, drilled by Rich and milled by me.

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)
