View Full Version : Need manual for Hensoldt Fero z24

I would like to know more about the use of the reticle for leading moving targets and range estimation.
Thanks for any help.

I posted this a LOOOOOONG time but couldn't come up with the thread link so here is the original.

Thank you Stranger, that is very helpful. I printed it and am now studying it. It gives a good diagram of the reticle. I must confess however that I am not clever enough to figure it out operationally. Oh, I got it zeroed and I understand the BDC but the lateral gradient is confusing. What do those gradients mean at various ranges? What about range estimation and leading moving targets at various ranges? I wonder if there is an operational manual available somewhere?
Thanks again, Stranger

Did you get it from Dan's?
If he still has them on sale, I might still be tempted to get one. I thought that the BDC was calibrated for 5.56, though.

I got the scope from Dans and it is a .308 BDC. I have it mounted on a .308 Steyr Scout. Great combination.

Well after leaving the Range today WITHOUT having any luck using my Newly mounted Hensoldt scope..:(
You have NO idea how glad I am for this Timely post..:wink:
I just mounted the scope on my G-1 and took it to the RANGE.. Don't ask me what I was thinking by making the Trip W/Out knowing how the Stupid thing works?:confused:
Long story short The scope was Not EVEN on the friggin Cardboard backer..
Looks to have been well below the target (about a Foot or so) and I did not know how to move it up that far?
How lucky I was to find this Post so Quickly. SCOPE is Now ZEROED and I am thinking seriosly of heading to the Range again in the AM to try it out..
Of course with yard work to do it prolly won't happen, but ya never know?
Now if use guys could explain the rest of the Marks inside the Optic, and How they work that would just be Icing on the CAKE.
Stranger~ Thanks for posting that link. I have printed it as well and will see what else I may be able to learn from it?
Man, I just love this place..:biggrin: :whiskey:
