It's just a lot of work.

Response to Scott, to correlate all that data for ........................

The math is the easy part. You don't have to be a genius to do it.

You said that the hardest part is holding steady enough to get the same mil-dot read twice. The hardest part about hitting a target is also holding steady enough to hit the same spot twice. Practice makes either better. You need regular practice to shoot accurately. You need regular practice to read mil-dots accurately.

You don't need to hit the exact spot you aim at, just get as close as you can. You don't need to get an exact mil-dot read, just get as close as you can.

Bottom line - If you think you can be steady enough to hit a difficult target, you can also be steady enough to read mil-dots.

Lots of venues use cinder blocks to secure targets. Concentrate on learning those. Even if you only see one or two viable blocks at a match, it might be just the advantage you need over a competitor who ignores them on a far target.

It would be easier to have a consistent feature to bracket. I think it would encourage more Hunter Division shooters and the clamor for bigger scopes might die out. But barring that, use what you can. WFTF has those nice target signs, but they don't need them to range. AAFTA does not have them but could use of them. Maybe that should be your next cause to promote.

I may start using target signs at our club matches. Another benefit - it would be easier to determine which target you are supposed to shoot next.
