NO DIALLING.....NO ZOOMING AND NO CALCULATIONS TO DO.....
JUST FIT AND FIRE !!
In the illustration above, the deer fits the 500 yard circle. That's how far
he is. The centre of each circle is the correct bullet drop for that range.
Put the circle that fits on the deer and fire. It's that simple. If the
animal is too big for the 300 yard circle, that means he is closer than 300 yards, so put the 200 yard line on him and shoot.
If he is too big for one circle and too small for the other, just hold in between
circles and shoot.
The circles on the full bore scope reticules are 18 inches. Those on
the .22 LR are 9 inches.
COMMON ANIMAL SIZES

fox approaching you is about 9 inches from the top of its head to its chest. Again, fit it in
half of a circle and fire.
