"Nikon Inline XR"

Anybody using this scope? I'm having a little difficulty getting used to the 'circles' as aiming points.

I am using this scope and really like it.

I have also found that if you use the Nikon Web site, put in all your load info, it will give you the yardages to each dot in your scope. Remember though, these yardages will change depending on what power your scope is on. I have found that you can use the top of the dot as more of a cross hair look. THe website will provide the yardages to the top and bottom of the circles as well.

Hope this helps.

I am not sure I like the elevation target holes for a sighting pattern and with the eye relief if you get a partial sighting plane the target will move on you much easier than anything else I have seen.

In using Spot-On you still need to shoot in the gun at different distances. I was using 90 grains of BH 209 and had to increase my spot-on powder charge way in excess of the powder adjustment that should have been needed.

Cannonball,

Yes, I agree that you need to shoot the gun. I believe the Spot on is a good starting point. I set up a 167 yrd shot to mimick what Spot on told me per the dot. I hit a couple inches high. Could have been me though. I also tried the 217 dot and at that range I was dead on height, but a little to the left. Probably me on that one. The bottom dot for my set up is 344 yards. I didnt try that one as I wouldn't on an animal. When using that one, the hold over was pretty extreme when looking at the main crosshair. Again, I believe it is just a good starting point. Zeroing in the gun with your own chart would be the best formula.

OK. I do really like this scope, however, I am not liking how tight it is to the hammer. I have this mounted on a TC Pro Hunter FX. I used the swing hammer to mover it over, but it is still tight. Its even a little scary when trying to release the hammer when not trying to fire. My thumb gets stuck in there. I am moving to a higher one piece scope mount. Hopefully this helps. Any other recommendations??

You've got it right. I put the higher one piece mount on my inline and it works fine.
