In order to use a mil-dot reticle, you have to know either the distance to the target, OR the size of the target.
The reticle will get you whichever you are missing of those two, but it will not get you both.

first, set scope on highest power. (fyi, leupold's mildot is set at highest power).

then use this formula. Height of item in inches x 27.8 (25.4)/Mils read = Distance to target in yards (meters).

They do have a Mark4 that is FFP.

the mark 4s (LRT) are set at the highest power.

One suggestion, is that if you are new to this, go with the TMR or another "mil-line" reticle. Lines are easier and more intuitive to learn and bracketing targets comes more naturally. It will make for less frustration in the short term. Just my .02
