That table is included in the scope box. It is for the sig scope cp1. I'll try to post it with photobucket but I'll have to create an account because I've never used them before. Thanks

I can't quite see what's in the pic, but it looks like a Bullet Drop Compensator to me. A BDC is a feature on some scopes to provide a quick and easy way to adjust your point of aim for different ranges. Basically, you zero your rifle to whatever range you want at the center of the crosshairs, then each horizontal line below the crosshairs represents the point of aim at further range. They're usually graduated in 100 yards per line intervals, but that varies from scope to scope.

So, if you zero your scope to 200 yards, the next line below the center of the crosshairs is your point of aim for 300 yards and so on. It may say what range they recommend you should zero the center of the crosshairs at in the instruction manual.

The thing to remember with such scopes is each caliber of bullet drops at a different rate so they're usually be calibrated to a particular caliber, or they'll include the range table to tell you how much a bullet of a given caliber will drop in a given distance. For instance, a .223 might drop 1 line in 100 yards, whereas a .308 might drop two lines in the same distance.

Also, the horizontal lines get narrower as they go down to give you a way to estimate what range your target is at. I don't know how they're calibrated on other scopes, but the BDC lines in the ACOG scopes I used in the Marine Corps were calibrated to be the width of the shoulders of an average adult male (i.e.--19 inches); so to estimate range, you just figure out which line is the same width as your target and that's a pretty good estimate of the range he's at.

Anyway, sorry for the wordy explanation, but I think that should help you understand your scope a little better. If you can get a better picture posted I may be able to help explain it to you a little more.

Yup, that's a Bullet Drop Compensator. The Range Table just gives you how many inches each line is equal to at 100yds so you can use that to determine how much you need to adjust your elevation and windage when you're zeroing your scope, or when you're shooting Kentucky style.

Thanks Trav! I'm still kinda lost with all those numbers, one side with inches/100 and the other one with MM/100. This is my first rifle and thats why I have so many questions. Thanks

Yup. No problem. This is the place to ask questions. We're all here to help each other. And just ignore the mm/100 side of the chart. All you need is the inches side.
