That... is...

Wow. Ya learn something new every day. And here I was thinking the center dot was 300m, and the lower dot was 500m or some junior-grade witchery like that.

Wow, now I really have no excuse for calling out correct-ish distances in contact reports...

I always felt it I was uncomfortable with the HOLO sight in ArmA 3,to the point where often I would drop them and switch to ironsights (TBF I like the ironsights more even when it comes to ACO)

I guess that explains it.

I know this tread is old, and I'm not sure if there are limitations on relevant post timelines, but the centre dot is supposedly zeroed at 50m and 200m, the second lower dot is 500m and the where the lower cross meets the outer circle is 7m and roughly 800m.

I noticed the image being corrupted. Boberro posted the image in the discord some time ago and additionally the image from imgur:
