    So... got in a FFP mil-mil scope yesterday, and took it to the range today. It occurred to me that 1/10 mil (0.36 moa) clicks are kind of coarse for a target with a 0.50 moa X-ring. It also occurred to me that all my plot sheets are in MOA, none at all in mils. Does anyone know of a plot sheet done with a mil-based grid overlay, or would anyone be interested in one if there isn't already one? I don't plan on making this my primary F-Class setup, not a chance, but I figure it would be good practice to shoot my 'practical' rifle in an F-Class match now and again.

    Ummm... I was talking about F-Class plot sheets... being as this is the F-Class sub-forum and all

    Something like these:

    ...but with a mil grid instead of moa.

    FWIW, I do something similar to the Horus setup - but with a sheet of butcher paper, a 4' construction level and a sharpie. Way cheaper in the long run

    Sorry, the not looking at the sub forum tab has got me more than once.

    Also I plead ignorant of F class stuff.

    LL,

    I just may do that... but I think I'll give it a stab myself first. I find plotting shots a lot easier on a full-size (8.5x11") sheet. Of course, if I could just keep more of 'em in the X/10-ring that wouldn't be such a problem...

    Monte, I think I have some here. I'll look in my books, and get back to this later today. On the way out, here.

    Re: Plot sheets with a mil-based grid

    Okay... its still kind of a work in progress, but I've had a gut-full of working in LibreOffice for now.

    F-Class Plot sheets

    It was definitely an eye-opener, seeing how the 1/10 mil clicks line up (or not) with an inch/moa based target. Took me a couple tries to get the gridding right due to my brain still being stuck in moa...

    Now you can kill the mil dimension circles, and you'll have a mil dimension grid over your MOA target. Leaving the mil circles in there makes it a bit on the busy side.

    Re: Plot sheets with a mil-based grid

    yeah... they were in there originally to get the spacing figured out, left them for the time being for a visual comparison against the inch/moa scoring rings. I guess nobody really talks about 1/10 mil 'groups' so the use may be limited...

    Re: Plot sheets with a mil-based grid

    Okay... updated it. Second sheet is sans the mil circles, added a grey x-ring-tall band across the target.
