It dials in 5 moa increments. Loosen knob .. . dial to just under what you want ... say 90 moa and tighten knob and do the fine adjusting with the scope. The bad part is you will need a couple different cheek rests for different distances.
The Charlie Tarac looks like it solves a lot of problems. Will wait to see real results before buying.

Heres a hands on video of the Ivey

I was thinking about the Tarac again today and looked at some more videos. One thing that it really interesting about it is to look at it backwards.

What if you could set zero out to 2000 yards, then use the unit to shoot at 100 and verify the zero? They did something similar in one video where the guy set at 1150, then popped the periscope on to shoot at 100.

That adds some very interesting implications- being able to shoot at center glass (with the use of a solid base to get right on center glass for a 2000 yard zero).

Does that make sense? Would be hard to get the initial zero at 2000, but if you knew the dope on your ammo you could do it mathematically and verify at 100 with the Tarac.

'Spoke' to John minutes ago - per email

Here is his reply "

Yes to all !

In fact we make a simpler unit that takes your 1200 yd zero back to 100yds.

In summary it can run "backwards" also

Very interesting. I think John's using this method in this video:

All of the TARAC styles can be run "upside down/backwards"
Indeed the rifle in the video shown has a 80moa rail and the video is on a 50yd range. The TARAC Bravo, which is being used, is an inverted 7mil down shift. The scope mount adapters are symmetrical in nature allowing the unit to mounted right side up, up side down and sideways...
Why sideways: it is often easier to find distant targets that can be milled left to right than it is vertically (unless you have some really tall buildings in the field where you are shooting). We use distant horizontal targets mill two objects with the retical, turn the unit sideways and adjust the Charlie to those objects making a fast field adjustment. NF ATACR's have over 50mil showing on the horizontal stadia when using a H59 type reticle.
The original TARAC Bravo was specifically designed to allow the user to have a 1-1400yd zero with the scope essentially bottomed out allowing the user to use the "sweet spot" of the optics at the 1700-2000yd mark.
The one down side of the Bravo is it is magnification limited. It works (image wise) well below 15x. At powers like 20x - you can see the fly on the paper at 100yds but cannot see his legs. A bit of blurriness enters due to the physics of the lens. I have certainly shot many one hole 100yd groups with the set up though.
The Charlie provides a crisp image regardless of the up/down requirements and is certainly capable of high magnification clarity.
