MarkhaAh ha Delta1, this thread puts a lot of things in to context for me and all is now clear!
ZF95 6x42 with M14 ballistic cam is for 7.62x51 150.5gr FMJ bullet at MV of 2800 ftps.
Zero with elevation dial at 100yds and then check for drop.
This ends my involvment on this issue for good.
I'm sure you've already figured this out, but my 2 cents worth: I've never been able to find any info on that and from what I've seen, I don't think the elevation knob (at least on the version of the ZFM I have) is made with a particular round's ballistics in mind. It just shifts point of view a fixed amount, by .25 mils per click (25mm @ 100m, 75mm @ 300m, etc.), up to where that should put you in hundreds of meters (marks 1-8). As you know, you can follow the manual's instructions to put the elevation you most use right on and check to see how close the other range marks bring you.I have purchased a SSG 69 p1 with the ZFM 6x42 scope. The rifle was manufactered in October of 2004.
Can anyone tell me what the elevation cam that goes from 1-8 which bullet and at what speed the cam is designed for? The reticle is the German 3 post.
