Possibly a stupid question but it's something I don't exactly understand. I searched and found nothing (really not a fan of the search function pulling up every post that contains one of the words that you searched for... :rant:)

Anyways, I've been looking at the Redfield Revolution to put on top of my next rifle (30-06, most likely Savage 116FCSS). I understand that I would be supposed to zero the rifle at 200 yards and then have holdovers for 300, 400, and 500 yards as shown in the picture... If I wanted to shoot at 100 yards would I use the intersection of the top of the circle and the crosshair then? I imagine it's a fairly obvious question but I could not find any info on either this site or anywhere else.

Thanks for the help!

Here's a photo from Redfields website showing what I mean...

it all depends on the trajectory of the bullet in particular. I have a nikon buckmasters BDC on my .243 which is the same concept. I zero at 200 and at 100 yds i am 1 inch high. so basically in a hunt situation I hold dead on and get the job done with a shot thats a tad high , or i could drop the hairs about an inch and hit dead nutz on. so basically with a flat shooting rifle the difference between 100 and 200yds will be a matter of an inch or less with a bdc scope. hope this helps.

Okay, this won't be perfect for your Redfield reticle, but if you use Nikon's free SpotOn program http://www.nikonhunting.com/spoton/ you can pick your load, set your zero and your target distance and get a really good idea of where you're going to hit.

It's a nice resource, and the price is right (free).
