about our success.....
The Mildot Master^{®}
is an analog calculator designed along the principle of a slide rule,
utilizing logarithmic and inverse logarithmic scales developed
specifically for performing the following operations:

Rapid and simple
calculation of range to target, based on a measurement of the target
with a mildot reticle, by aligning the estimated target size
directly opposite the mildot measurement, and then reading the range
at an index mark.

Rapid and simple
calculation of the amount of sight correction necessary to
compensate for bullet drop and/or wind drift for a given range,
enabling the shooter to determine either the equivalent telescopic
sight adjustment (minuteofangle, or MOA) or the equivalent
holdover (mils), by reading equivalents in both MOA and mils
directly opposite the bullet drop/wind drift figure.

Additionally, angle of
fire for uphill or downhill shots can be accurately measured, and
the up/down compensation can be closely calculated to reduce the
errors such shots can induce.

The mildot reticle is in
increasingly widespread use among longrange rifle shooters as a means
of estimating the range to the target. This estimation is critical in
order to correct for the varying degree of projectile drop (and/or wind
drift) at different ranges and thereby enable the shooter to hit the
target. With training and familiarization, an experienced marksman can
accurately estimate range to target by using this type of reticle and by
making the appropriate calculations. Originally fitted to telescopic
sights designed for military (and later police) use, the mildot reticle
has seen growing acceptance in the civilian sector among target shooters
and hunters.
By using a set of fixed
references within the scope, the shooter can compare the size of the
target, a portion of the target, or a nearby reference target to a
series of precisely sized dots and spacing. By estimating the size of
the target or nearby reference and noting the number of mils that equal
the size of the target, the shooter can determine the range to the
target by applying a formula (size of target in yards multiplied by
1000, divided by size of target in mils, equals range to target in
yards), usually done with the help of a conventional hand held
electronic calculator.
However, there are
problems associated with the use of an electronic calculator. The Mildot
Master^{®} is designed to eliminate these problems.

Problem 

Solution 
The
necessary calculations are somewhat complex and depend upon
the shooter's ability to remember and correctly apply the
formula. 

With
the Mildot Master^{®},
you don't have to memorize formulae, as the correct formulae
are already built into the scales. 
The
size of the target is more often than not mentally estimated
in inches, necessitating an additional calculation to convert
the target size into a decimal equivalent of yards. ie:
18" shoulder width. If the range is to be calculated in
meters, an additional conversion from yards to meters in
necessary. 

No
conversion of estimated target size from inches into decimal
equivalent of yards is necessary, as the Target Size Scale is
in increments of feet and inches on the Mildot
Master^{®}. 
Even
after the shooter has gone through the range calculation
procedure, the amount of bullet drop (or wind drift)
applicable to that range must now be applied to the sight
picture to enable a hit on the target. Either the scope must
be adjusted or the sight picture "held over", which
necessitates a second series of calculations to translate the
needed amount of correction into a scope adjustment or
holdover figure for that range and load. 

The
Mildot Master^{®} makes
this process extremely simple by performing range
determination, sight adjustment, and holdover calculations
simultaneously. Once the range has been determined by aligning
the Target Size with the measured number of mils, bullet
drop/drift figures are automatically aligned with the
corresponding sight adjustment/holdover figures. 
Aside
from the possibility of errors occurring during these
calculations, the time involved in such calculations can prove
problematic in certain scenarios, such as military or police
countersniping operations, timed competitive targetshooting
events, or hunting situations. 

Speed
of calculations necessary to determine range to target and
required telescopic sight adjustment and/or holdover can be
significantly reduced by using the Mildot
Master^{®} in lieu of a conventional handheld
electronic calculator.
