    Any chance they will be coming out with a fixed power line?

    Turret options on any of them?

    OK, I just received the following from my contact at Minox:
    Attached are what I have for reticle images. For the BDC reticle basic drop approximations can be made for a 30 caliber center fire rifle; sighted “dead on” at 100 yards the first stadia line would be 200 yards, and the 2nd stadia line would approximate 300 yards. The up-right hash marks on the center line approximates the bullet drift for a 10 mph crosswind and the ends of the lower stadia lines approximate the effect of the same 10 mph crosswind at 200 and 300 yards. These approximates apply with the power settings of the 3-9 and 2-10 at maximum magnification, with the 3-15 it is at 10x and with the 4-20 it is at 16x.
    All ballistic reticles can only provide accurate drop points from test shooting the specific weapon upon which it is mounted. Even then it only is accurate for the same ammo and will vary with temperature, altitude, and barometric pressure. Most shooters understand that such reticles are a tool which needs to calibrated and not a magic wand out of the box.
    Personally I would probably sight a big game rifle to be dead on at 200 yards and then test shoot to determine point of impact at the additional stadia lines.

    Plex:
    I hope this helps. Let me know if you've got additional questions.

    I just received the following from Minox:
    Attached you will find a revised Specifications Sheet for the ZA Riflescopes. Please note the changes made in the weights listed for each model. The initial information was developed from engineering design documents. The new information provided was determined by actually weighing production samples. The greatest change is with the ZA 5 4-20x50 SF which was listed at 25 ounces but actually weighs only 18.9 ounces!
    Also you will note an added line in the Windage/Elevation section which states the image plane placement of the reticles. All ZA models place the reticle in the second image plane which provides for a consistent (non-magnifying) visual reticle size at all power settings. This is the “classic” placement of reticles in American style riflescopes.
    Please let me know if you have questions or require additional information
