At the press of a button, enter the Drop Number and Ballistic Coefficient appropriate for the ammunition. This data is available in the Cartridge List (1,500+ Specific Loads) provided by Burris or from just about any ballistics software program.
To range, place the cross hair on the target and press either button on the objective bell. In less than a second, the range to the target and a lighted dot will appear indicating the correct aiming point for the specific ammunition for the distance to the target.
The X96 reticle provides a convenient and accurate METHOD to more easily compensate for wind. However, complete wind compensation is NOT fully automated within the scope. It still requires some thinking on the part of the shooter. In addition to distance, the digital display will show a 10 MPH Wind Value for the specific cartridge at the indicated range to the target. This is a “Dot Value” that corresponds to the dots on each side of the reticle’s vertical post. These dots let the shooter precisely hold into the wind. The shooter still needs to estimate the cross-wind and convert the 10MPH Wind Value displayed to the appropriate value for the estimated actual MPH cross-wind value. The shooter then holds into the wind using the appropriate “Dot Value” as shown in the examples below.
