I've decide to switch to using a comma on my Nikko Diamond-

lower profile - easier to store and zip up the rifle case -

wondering if anyone has some nice printed range tapes with distance markings
that will correspond to a big Nikko for rangefinding?

looking for something like this :


I've also noticed that in order to see the distances accurately you must have the rifle straight, level and true
and be almost looking through the scope at the correct angle .... anything else gives odd or incorrect ranging

I guess it's just gonna take some getting used to ....
cheers

You may also just "roll your own" with Visio, as I did here:

those programs may not work. the reason for the Coma is to give you more separtion at the higher mags.

The "Airgunning Atlanta" download are just labels (from Kevin Allen, I think), so you stick them wherever you want to.

Same applies to the Visio worksheet... it's just a template that you can use to position your own markings, like this:
1) you start out by taping a blank paper strip along the comma, and then make pencil markings on the strip for the distances you want
2) you then remove the strip to measure the distance (in millimeters) between markings, and then translate that to the Visio worksheet (i.e., the Visio strip should be carbon copy of the paper strip you marked with a pencil)
3) you then print the Visio strip (with nice colored lines & numbers), and tape it onto the comma
(I use dual-sided tape first, put the strip on top of that, and then cover the strip with clear one-sided tape)

It's a labor of love (as in royal PITA), but you only have to do it once.

I have been wrong before. Lol

I created and printed some blank scope tapes with equidistant hash marks that I've used to get my new scopes set up with. I'd be happy to send you a few strips of them if you would like. You can label them with yards, numbers or ???. They are printed on full sheet of label paper. The strips are approximately 11" long.

I purchased a CNC mill so I have greatly expanded my machining capability. This comma has an effective 8" diameter.
