The Mildot Master is an analog calculator designed along the primary of a slide rule, utilizing logarithmic and inverse logarithmic scales developed in particular for performing the next operations: Rapid and easy calculation of range to focus on, in keeping with a measurement of the objective with a mildot reticle, by aligning the estimated target size right away opposite the mildot measurement, after which reading the variety at an index mark. Rapid and easy calculation of the volume of sight correction vital to make amends for bullet drop and/or wind float for a given range, enabling the shooter to decide either the similar telescopic sight adjustment (minute-of-angle, or MOA) or the similar hold-over (mils), by reading equivalents in both MOA and mils right away opposite the bullet drop/wind float figure. Moreover, angle of fireplace for uphill or downhill shots will also be correctly measured, and the up/down compensation will also be closely calculated to scale back the errors such shots can induce.
No conversion of estimated target size from inches into decimal similar of yards is vital, because the Target Size Scale is in increments of feet and inches.
No entry of knowledge or operations via a keypad is vital, because the device is solely analog and best requires the alignment of figures on scales.
No memorization of formulae is vital, as the proper formulae are built into the scales.
No complex calculations for determination of telescopic sight adjustment or hold-over at quite a lot of ranges are vital, because the scales of the device convert drop/float figures right away into both MOA and mils.
No separate data sheet is vital for bullet drop figures, because the reverse side of the device is designed to house either commercially to be had data decals or user-produced data strips.
