    Sometimes I'm a little slow. Okay...maybe a lot slow.:confused: I'm not sure what you mean by reticle markings.

    Seems as though there are yardage indication markings on the bottom half of the elevation axis.

    But i can find any info as to what distances the markings indicate, or if they are just used to gauge distance.

    If your scope is not a model with BDC (Bullet Drop Compensation) I would say your assumption they are reference marks to gauge distance is correct.

    I have a Cabela's scope that has similar markings. It is just used to bracket targets of known sizes at a known distance to help you with hold over. Once you learn how many inches the marks represent it becomes a faster mental calculation if you need, for example, 4" of hold over at 200yds.
