    I’m out of luck until strelok updates their data. I have the new Hawke FFP and it’s not in their data base yet.

    I guess I gotta do it the old fashioned way.

    Just find a reticle that somewhat matches and you should be good.  Won’t look the same but should work the same.

    I don’t know what your reticle looks like, but the Athlon Optics APMR reticle might be worth looking at.  It’s a Mil reticle.

    I have the Hawke Sidewinder 6-25X56 FFP in Mils and it is in mine. Are you using a different scope?  I did not see the 4-16.

    I have the 6-24×56 FFP.  (Not sure about “25”) ;)  I was looking for it on my app but I may have missed it?
     I’ll look again when I get home tonight.

    Just type Hawke in search and you will find at the bottom of the list. They made that ”25” special for me.  ;)  I would stay in metric till he fixes the app.

Got it! Much appreciated!

    Strelok was just updated today. The update fixed the issue with close targets with slow velocity from airguns with imperial units with one small exception. When you hit calculate the first time it will give incorrect data. Hit it again, and it will be correct

Is this with every use or just for the first time after the update?

with each use. I’m sure it will be fixed soon.

    Anyone using a bluetooth rangefinder with it? My Anemometer isn’t compatible anymore…. (kestrel)

    what is the height of the scope rings figure your using? Default is 2″ –  I forgot how to get the measurement. Using the FX no limit rings on my Impact X .30

    I used 2.95″ that I measured on my Impact. The (diameter of the tube + the width of the barrel)/2 + the distance between. I measured everything with calipers. Probably overkill. I’m pretty sure you can eyeball it with a tape measure and it won’t make that much of a difference at a distance. 50 yards = 2.95″ – 3.1 clicks,  3.0″ – 3.0 clicks. It will make a more of a difference up close.

    Use tinfoil with a pinhole over the objective, so you can see and aim at a cross drawn on paper at or near point blank. Measure the distance between the center of the cross and pellet hole – that’ll be your scope height. 

    Works very well especially with adjustable mounts where it errors in direct measurement are hard to avoid.

    One time I used this tinfoil measurement with the left overs from making the hat..

    I noticed that there is (still) quite a lot of parallax error or something else going on, since I made 3 shots which all landed separate. Or it is the fact that I am such a lousy shot that making a group at 50cm-1m is hard enough. (3-4 feet)

    Maybe a longer distance would help?

    As a side note, the scope height should be measured at the objective bell. This is where the light comes in = your eyeball “moves” here when looking through a scope.

    Scope height should really be the distance between the optical center line and the tip of your barrel as that point is the minimum between the two and then from there the projectile is no longer moving perfectly straight but rather dropping.  
    That’s the reason that a measurement at the objective is more accurate, especially with adjustable mounts. The trouble with direct measurements is they don’t take the internal adjustment into account.

    Yup, still the potential for parallax to get you with the tinfoil method I suppose.i haven’t found it a problem but no method is perfect I guess
