HFT Mildot bracketing training

Hover your mouse over the target photograph and line the bottom thick post of the reticle up with the top of the target hinge, then count up the number of mildots to the top of the faceplate. (note: You’ll need a desktop browser to be able to see the crosshairs)

Once you have a mildot size for the faceplate, use the bracketing chart to read off the distance to the target.
Note: the ‘All Nockover targets’ column is the distance from the top of the hinge to the centre of the killzone. Try comparing the measurements from Hinge to Centre of target, full faceplate and killzone only sizes and you should notice how much more accurate the full faceplate bracketing method is.

It’s not always as easy as it sounds, in some cases you won’t be able to see the crosshairs clearly against the background, in some cases you’ll need to take the measurement in to parts when the faceplate size is larger than 10 mildots. It’s up to you to figure out how to get the right answer.
