I know ive tried this in the past, but never commited any of it to memory. Anyone else done the following, recently ?

I have a scope on my AR that has just a standard "30-30" style reticle. I know its a tough guess, but where would you guess aproximate hold-over points would be for say 300,400 and 500yds ? I havent fired this rifle over 100 yds yet, so it will be interesting to find out when i get to my long distance range.

Im guesstimating (based on looking at another scope with mildot reticle i have) on the following:
300yds - about 1/4 way down on the lower reticle
500 yds - about 1/2 way down on the lower reticle

This using m193

What distance is it zeroed at?

What is the hieght over bore? (is it the same as the irons like with an Armalite mount?)

What is the muzzle velocity out of your barrel?

Is it a Duplex or a simple single width reticle?
If it is a Duplex, how much does the fine line cover up at 100 yds?

What is a 'standard' or '30-30' reticule?

Duplex. I think Tasco calls them the "30/30".

Onslaught is correct. Tasco, now owned by Bushnell originally called their duplex a 30-30 reticle and had to do with range estimation on whitetail deer size game. I imagine that could probably be translated to a center mass size target area as well. I do not rmember the specifics however.
