    This is my first attempt at putting together a precision rifle, getting rings and base is next but learning to put this scope to use is where Im kinda a novice. I may be wrong but the TMR is similar to mildot were the dots are now replaced with stadia lines, but after that, it gets kinda confusing, Im just trying to get my feet wet, and thought starting with good products as my foundation, was the way to go, I guess I need help in properly using the scope/reticle / correctly the rifle is a remy 700 sps tactical. I got a great deal on the scope and just could not stomach the 1400-1500 dollars for a nightforce but Im sure the leupy will fit the bill nicely for now. Well any advice on using the scope, and/or getting started properly into long range shooting.

    The Leupold should do nicely now.

    I don't know about the "TMR" reticle, but the best article to read is here:

    http://demigodllc.com/articles/practical-long-range-rifle-shooting-optics/

    That's by THR's own Zak Smith. Lots and lots to read, but print it out and read it over and over until you absorb the information.

    You should also check out his other articles on "Practical Long Range Rifle Shooting", on the same site. I enjoy his thorough reviews, excellent articles, and competent explanations.

    He may pop in on this thread...

    The article Avenger29 posted is Part 2 in a 3-part series that should explain the basics from start to finish. Don't be afraid to get out there are just try stuff (safely). Keeping good notes helps a lot.
