BAZ45, and AR type carbine in 45ACP: meant for short ranges, it can be used further out...with care.

If you ever have to shoot beyond the point blank range of your weapon, it helps to know two things: how far the target is, and how to sight on it to score a hit. Some scopes make it easy by providing a reticle for measuring range on objects of known height or width and for holding over to compensate for bullet drop. Unfortunately, pre-calculated reticles are only close for the one combination barrel length/muzzle velocity, bullet weight, and height over bore, such as 3150fps, 62gr, 2.5 inches. Putting the same scope on a 20″ rifles firing 3300fps 55gr bullets gets rather different points of impact at range. http://www.alloutdoor.com/2014/04/09/wea...Newsletter
