Regarding the reticle, are the hash marks below the red dot predesigned bullet drop compensators for 5.56/7.62 or not? If so, what are the ranges approx.?

Asked by: KCtrial
There are two part number options for the 1x5x24 M5Xi. You can choose either a 5.56 reticle or a 7.62 reticle. Both reticles are set up for 100 meter zero, and will compensate out to 700 meters.

Is the elevation adjustment knob preset 5.56/7.62 bullet drop for 100yd/m, 200yd/m, 300yd/m, etc.; or is our responsibility to know our tables for bullet drop and adjust accordingly?

Asked by: KCtrial
It's 100 METERS - it's a German Scope. We have a reticle for either 5.56 or 7.62. Your choice.

If I zero my Steiner at 200 yards, will the bullet drop hash marks work the same way as if zeroed for 100 yards (e.g. first hash mark is 300 instead of 200, second hash mark is 400 instead of 300 and so on)?

Asked by: Herb
It will have an impact on each hash mark. And it gets complicated, since it's based on your gun, bullet, elevation, atmospheric condition and so on. This is why shooters frequently develop DOPE cards, where they keep track of data from previous shoots, to help them more accurately target at specific conditions and ranges.

what bullet weights are the 5.56 and 7.62 calibrated for?

Asked by: m14oneshot
This reticle was designed for NATO cartridges (55gr and 62gr 5.56, 147gr and 175gr 7.62) but all cartridges, barrels, and conditions not being equal makes 'calibrated' reticles more of an estimation based upon the bell curve. Any shooter may give our tech support line a call or email with ballistic info, and we'll do our best to supply estimated points of impact for the specified cartridge
