New Leupold UltimateSlam

Leupold have launched a new scope called the UltimateSlam for shotguns and modern muzzleloaders. The SABR reticle can be adjusted to match your load.

SABR: Sabot Ballistics Reticle

Leupold’s® all-new UltimateSlam™ riflescope is the ideal combination of flexibility, accuracy, and durability for today’s modern muzzleloaders and shotguns. As an example of accuracy, using Hornady SST 2-pellet, 3-pellet and 12 gauge shotgun loads at up to 300 yards, the maximum error of the UltimateSlam is less than 1″ as compared to a 14″ error from the leading competitor.

    Hmm. How far apart are those holdover marks, in mils?

    Could this be used as a sort of makeshift stadia rangefinding system?

    Mind you, it does nothing that properly calibrate mil-dots don't do better, but it may be that they perceive mil-dots carry a certain politically unfortunate connotation (i.e., they are for range estimation to facilitate antipersonnel work at unknown ranges, probably in access of 500m) whereas multiple holdover marks are just, ya know, holdover marks. For shooting at deer. And paper targets. And other legitimate sporting purposes.

    You can use mildots for holdover too, though they are perhaps a bit coarse for this at long range.
