    Question about dual crosshairs

    I have two old Weaver K2.5s. One has two horizontal crosshairs. The upper crosshair is the same thickness as the vertical crosshair. The lower horizontal cross hair is finer.

    I seem to remember that the second crosshair serves as some kind of rangefinder but it's been a long time. Something about fitting a deer's body between the two crosshairs??

    Could someone give me some more information about the two crosshairs and their proper use?

    Thanks!

    Question about dual crosshairs

    That space between the wires should represent 18" at 100 yds. Weaver called it the Range-finder reticle. With a little work on targets at the range, you can set the upper cross wire for zero at a certain range, and use the lower "cross-hair" for a further distance, eg- 60 and 100 yds depending on the trajectory of your load. Best to work this out with targets, and get it memorized before hunting. The K 2.5's are nice little scopes.

    Re: Question about dual crosshairs

    Doc, thanks for the information. My memory wasn't too bad. I found the scopes on eBay and plan to install them on my 1894 and .444. At the ranges I plan on shooting, 2.5 is enough magnification and the small objective will allow low mounting. The dual crosshairs have some interesting possibilities - gonna have to see what I can come up with.
