nikon mildot
 
I recently purchased a mildot reticle Nikon Buckmaster 4.5-14x40 scope.

Is is correct to assume the mildots are calibrated for use at maximum magnification?

Not every mfg has the reticles calibrated the same.You might want to email Nikon with the model # of your scope and ask them what power the reticle is set up for.
Most of the time,the calibration for the reticle is listed in the owners manual.

Usually its top magnification, all of the mildot scopes ive had were that way

I was told there is a marking on the magnification ring, and it is, at 12x.

The literature I got with my m223 says yes, max mag (12x in my case).

If you go to the "Spoton" application on the http://www.nikonhunting.com/spoton/index.php page, you can enter your scope model, ammo, weather, etc and it will give you specific ranging for each graduation of your selected magnification of the mildot and allow you to print it. There's also a SpotOn app for iPhone and Android that provides the same info (easier to take to the range than a bunch of paper scraps).

So far, it's worked pretty well for me. I have the m223 and p22 scopes ... the SpotOn program has been pretty accurate for me.
