FAST FOCUS EyEPIECE The fast-focus eyepiece dial is found on the ocular end of the Bushnell Elite Tactical Riflescope. Use this adjustment to obtain a reticle image that appears sharp to your eyes. If adjustment is needed, look at a distant object for several seconds without using your scope.
BORE SIGhTING AND ZEROING ThE SCOPE Bore sighting is a preliminary procedure to achieve proper alignment of the scope with the rifle bore. It is best done using a Bushnell Bore Sighter. If a bore sighter is not available, it can be done as follows: Remove the bolt and sight through the gun barrel at a 100 yard target.
In the example to the left using the BTR-Mil reticle, the shooter was attempting to hit a target in the center of the crosshairs. The actual point of impact hit 4 Mils down and 3 Mils left, as indicated by the red dot. Adjust the elevation dial 4 Mils up/windage dial 3 Mils right.
Rotate the elevation turret knob counterclockwise to move the reticle plane up, or clockwise to move it down. Rotate the windage dial counterclockwise to move the reticle plane right, or clockwise to move it left. These Bushnell Tactical Riflescopes provide 5 mils of adjustment per complete revolution of the turret.
ELEvATION AND WINDAGE FINGER TOUCh ADJUSTMENTS (1-6.5x24 MODELS) 1-6.5x24 models of the Bushnell Elite Tactical Riflescope with illuminated reticle feature finger-adjustable, audible-click elevation and windage adjustments. To adjust the elevation or windage: 1. Remove the covers from the Elevation and Windage Adjustments.
With the turrets pulled fully upward, rotate the elevation turret knob counterclockwise to move the reticle plane up, or clockwise to move it down. Rotate the windage dial counterclockwise to move the reticle plane right, or clockwise to move it left. These Bushnell tactical riflescopes provide 10 mils of adjustment per complete revolution of the turret.
USING ThE MIL DOT RETICLE (ET3124F / ET6245F) Your Bushnell riflescope contains a mil-dot reticle (1st focal plane), the most accurate means of range estimation using a manual optical device. These mil dots also allow precise leads for moving targets and exact compensation for shooting in a crosswind.
height or width carefully in mils, compute it according to the formula and you will find its range. Support your rifle and be precise when measuring objects; any measuring error causes an error in the computed range. Equally, a mistake in estimating the object size results in a proportional range error.
USING ThE BTR-MIL™ BALLISTIC TACTICAL RETICLE (ET3124FJ / ET6245FJ) The Bushnell BTR-Mil™ Ballistic Tactical Reticle is a hashmarked reticle that uses mrad based subtension lines for ranging, holdover and windage corrections. The illuminated 1 mil diameter circle with .1 mil center dot provides an unobstructed view of the target with 10 illumination settings.
USING ThE BTR-1 TACTICAL RETICLE IN A FIRST FOCAL PLANE SCOPE (ET1624F) Elite Tactical model ET1624F with the BTR-1 Tactical Reticle is designed to be sighted-in at 100 yards (or meters), and provides hold over points out to 600 meters. This reticle is calibrated for use with 223 Rem/5.56 ammunition loaded with 55-62 grain bullets. Because the BTR-1 reticle is located in the first focal plane (FFP) position in this model, it will be accurate for all targets at any magnification setting.
USING ThE BTR-1 TACTICAL RETICLE IN A SECOND FOCAL PLANE SCOPE ( ET1624SF) Elite Tactical model ET1624SF with the BTR-1 Tactical Reticle is designed to be sighted-in at 100 meters/yards, and provides hold over points out to 600 meters. This reticle is calibrated for use with 223 Rem/5.56 ammunition loaded with 55-62 grain bullets. The reticle design allows accurate aiming points out to 600 meters.
To Use the Reticle: 1. Sight in at 100 meters/yds on any magnification setting. 2. Determine distance to target. For the best accuracy in determining distance, utilize a Bushnell Laser Rangefinder (Scout DX 1000 ARC, G Force 1300 ARC).
To Use the Reticle: 1. Sight in at 100 yds at the 6.5x magnification setting. 2. Determine distance to target. For the best accuracy in determining distance, utilize a Bushnell Laser Rangefinder (Scout DX 1000 ARC, G Force 1300 ARC).
MAINTENANCE Your Bushnell Elite Tactical riflescope, though amazingly tough, is a precision instrument that deserves reasonably cautious care. 1. When cleaning the lenses, first blow away any dry dirt and dust, or use a soft lens brush. Fingerprints and lubricants can be wiped off with lens tissue, or a soft clean cloth, moistened with lens cleaning fluid.
APPENDIX: MIL DOT RANGING & HOLDOVER EXAMPLES USING MIL DOT RETICLES FOR RANGING The Equations: Size of target in yards X 1000 = Range in Yards Size of Target in Mils Size of target in inches X 27.778 = Range in Yards Size of target in Mils Size of target in inches X 25.4 = Range in Meters...
APPENDIX: MIL DOT RANGING & HOLDOVER EXAMPLES Example 2: Take the same size target but now the Mil reading is .75 (from crosshair intersection to bottom of first Mil Dot). Known size of target: 12”x 12” Mil Reading: .75 Mil 12 X 27.778 = 444.44 Yards .75 Mil...
APPENDIX: MIL DOT RANGING & HOLDOVER EXAMPLES USING MIL DOT RETICLES FOR hOLDOvER MIL vALUE Once you know how to range your target with a Mil Dot reticle, and using the previous yARDS IN INChES example, you can use the reticle instead of the turrets to make adjustments with holdover. For example, your range tells you that the 12”...
