Zeroing the Accu-Trac
Remove the hex head screw and dial from the scope. Make zero adjustments as required using a screwdriver or coin inserted into the slot at the top of the elevation plunger.
Accu-Trac is calibrated from 200 to 600 yards so you will need a 200 yard zero. If possible, zero on an actual 200 yard range. If a 200 yard range is not available, you can zero the scope high at 100 yards. The amount of this MRT is shown below:
Dial MRT
"A" +1.6"
"B" +2.0"
"C" +2.4"
"D" 0.0"

* "D" dial is calibrated from a 100 yard zero

Note:
Accu-Trac elevation dials are different MOA value (Adjustment increment values) than the windage dials and the elevation dials on None Accu-Trac scopes. Elevation knob value per graduation for Accu-Trac scopes is 0.4" per click.

Calibrating the dial
Once the scope has been zeroed, place the correct dial on the elevation turret and turn clockwise until it stops. (See the Accu-Trac Compatible ballistics chart shown below) The zero distance number should be aligned with the reference line on the outer tube. Tighten the hex head screw being careful not to change the elevation setting while doing so. Your Accu-Trac is now calibrated for the 200 yard zero and all other ranges.

Using Accu-Trac
With the rifle at your shoulder in a normal shooting position, sight on the game, placing its body between the two "stadia" wires. Turn the power selector ring (zoom in or out)...

When the game fits between the stadia wires from shoulder to brisket, read the range as the last figure visible at the bottom of the scope.

With the proper dial for your bullet caliber and weight installed, turn the elevation dial to the range indicated (i.e. "5" for 500 yards). You have now compensated for bullet drop from zero at that range.

Aim right on target without holdover. Since you have already estimated range, you can increase or decrease the scope power as desired without affecting the trajectory or point of impact.

Important:
Avoid letting the sun shine directly into the objective lens. This lens can act as a "burning glass", causing deterioration of the Accu-Range scale inside of the scope.

Using Accu-Trac on various sized game
Deer measuring approximately 18" from shoulder to brisket are perfect objects for using Accu-Trac. However, applying the factors listed below can also use other animals of larger or smaller size.
For example: The body of an elk measuring 24' from shoulder to brisket, indicates a distance of 300 yards. To compensate for the large body size, find the actual distance under the 300-yard column as 400-yards.
Animal Measurement Indicated Scale Distance
200 300 400 500 600
Adjusted Actual Distance
Elk 24" shoulder to brisket 270 400 530 670 800
Sheep 22" shoulder to brisket 250 375 500 625 750
Dear 18" shoulder to brisket 200 300 400 500 600
Chuck 18" full length standing 200 300 400 500 600
Antelope 14" shoulder to brisket 150 225 300 375 450
Mountain Lion 12" shoulder to brisket 135 200 270 335 400
Coyote 9" shoulder to brisket 100 150 200 250 300
Gopher 9" shoulder to brisket 100 150 200 250 300
