APPLICATION
The ATN 10x65Z-Army Mil-Dot is not an evolution but a revolution, not an improvement, but
a breakthrough. For years the best names in
optics were aspired to produce a balanced
large aperture tactical scope. Large aperture
renders into large Exit Pupil. Large Exit Pupil
means longer operating hours and better
performance in low light conditions and in
“stressed” environment. Nevertheless, the
“let’s get a Big Hunting scope and put a Mil-Dot
in it and call it “Tactical”” approach always led
to a problem with uncomfortably high mounting.
The new ATN 10x65Z-Army Mil-Dot prismatic
design solves all the problems, and allows a
sniper to use a scope with 65mm aperture that
sits closer to the barrel than a standard 40mm
scope. With a sharp crisp image, workable
size, high durability and with an abundance of
features like illuminated Army Mil-Dot reticle,
interchangeable Bullet Drop Compensator for
five different calibers, “will-not-bump” eye relief
and parallax adjustment the ATN 10x65Z is a
standard not an option for LE marksmen and
military sniper alike.

OPERATING
MOUNTING
1. Slightly loosen the fixing screws on the
weaver rail built into the scope.
2. Place the scope on the dovetail mount of the
fire arm making certain that the mount aligns
with the receptor attachment screw groove.
Adjust as necessary.
3. Tighten the fixing screws.
NOTE: Receptor attachment screws may need
to be tightened after continuous shooting.
The ATN Mounting System allows to change the
position of the riflescope flexibly on the weapon
in relation to a shooter in combination with the
fixed positions already available on the weaver
rail. For this purpose in the base of the mounting bracket there is a rail with a fixing projection.
There are 2 grooves in the mounting bracket
for mounting this rail. Besides it is possible to
change the position of the riflescope additionally by 1/3 of inch. For doing this one needs to
about-face the rail.

Rail
To change the position of the riflescope on
the weaver rail additionally follow the steps
mentioned below:
CAUTION: Viewing the sun can cause serious
eye injury, never look at the sun with this product or even the naked eye.
If the reticle is not sharply defined instantly, turn
the eyepiece (either direction) a few turns.
Quickly glance through the scope again. If the
focus has improved, but is still not perfect, continue focusing. If the focus condition become
worse turn the focus the opposite direction.
Next, focus the front lens until the image and
the grain are both sharp.
NOTE: The front lens should be readjusted
as you view objects at different distances, the
diopter should not be adjusted.
LOCKING MECHANISM
There is a locking mechanism with fixation
screw for windage/elevation adjustment and
zeroing mechanism.
Slightly loosen the fixation screw before zeroing or windage/elevation adjustment .
1. Unscrew the two screws, which attach
the rail to the mounting bracket.
2. Take the rail out of the groove.
3. About-face the rail in case of necessity.
4. Place the rail into another groove.
5. Fix the rail with the two screws.
NOTE: If the rail is not taken out easily, screw up
tight one of screws into the threaded aperture in
the middle of a fixing projection of the rail. Continue rotation of the screw. Thus the screw will
push out a rail from a groove.
FOCUSING
While holding the scope about four inches from
your eye, quickly glance through the eyepiece
at a featureless, flatly lit bright area such as a
wall or the sky.

Fixation screw
After zeroing or windage/elevation adjustment
turn the fixation screw clockwise, to lock the
adjustment mechanism.
WINDAGE AND ELEVATION
The vertical and horizontal adjustments for the
10x65Z can be achieved by turning the elevation and windage adjustment mechanisms
(remove dust caps first). Each click equals to
1/8 inches at 100 yards. When reaching the
maximum of rotation do not use force.

4. Turn the windage and elevation handles
through the number of clicks necessary for
an amendment.
The number of clicks should be read from the
scale with respect to the chosen line. Each
graduation interval equals to 10 clicks.
NOTE: Each click of adjustment changes
bullet strike by the amount shown on the
chart below.

ZEROING
Pre-zeroing is recommended and can be done
in accordance with a scope guide or owner’s
instructions.
CAUTION: Be sure gun is not loaded. Always
use safe gun handling procedures.
All shooting should be done at an approved
range or other safe area. Eye and ear protection is recommended.
DANGER: If you used a bore-obstructing
device, remove it before proceeding. If
the barrel has-been drilled for a mount,
check that the screws do not protrude
into the bore. Do not fire live or even blank
ammunition with an obstructed barrel. An
obstruction can cause serious damage
to the gun and possible injury to you and
others nearby.
Set the shooting distance on the compensator’s scale.
From a steady position, fire three rounds at a
target. Observe the impact errors and estimate
the correction value. Adjust windage and
elevation handles as needed to correct aim.
1. Remove the dust caps from the top of the
windage and elevation adjusting handles.
2. Choose one of the lines as regard to which
you can take readings more conveniently.
3. Rotating the scale by protrusive pins set
zero of the turning scale just opposite the
chosen line.
100 Yards - 1/8”
200 Yards - 1/4”
300 Yards - 3/8”
400 Yards - 1/2”
600 Yards - 3/4”
800 Yards - 1”
1000Yards - 1 1/4”
When you have finished adjustment of fire,
recap windage and elevation mechanisms.
ELECTRONIC RETICLE
Your scope has an electronic reticle. There
are 11 degrees of illumination. The rheostat is
the knob located at the back of the scope. It is
labeled with numbers OFF through 11. When
the rheostat is set at OFF you will see a black
etched reticle. The reticle will light up red electronically as you rotate the rheostat through
the numbers, 11 being the brightest.
RANGEFINDER RETICLE
The Mil-dot reticle is used in the 10x65Z. Mil
dot reticle is a reliable means of determining
distances to targets, establishing leads for
moving targets, and for alternate aiming points
for windage and elevation holds.
Dots are spaced in one mil (milliradian) increments on the crosshair. A distance to target
can be calculated using the mil formula, that is
based on the size of the object being targeted.
Look through the scope, and bracket the object
between dots.
1 mil
1 mil
4
The space between dot centers subtends one
milliradian(mil). One mil. subtends 3.6 inches
at 100 yards or 36 inches at 1,000 yards. To
use this system effectively you must know the
size of the target.
By measuring the height or width of a known
(or approximately known target size) in milradians using the reticles, the target distance
can be calculated as follows.
R = range in meters, H = target size in meters,
M = mil-radians of the image size:
R = 1000 * H / M
Military shooters are trained to know that the
common male torso is 39 inches from crotch
to top of head. This is very close to exactly
one meter. This formula then becomes
R = 1000 / M for a one meter target size.
BULLET DROP COMPENSATOR
You should have zeroed your scope in at 200
yards. When shooting at longer ranges the
bullet drop compensator can be adjusted for
200, 400, 600, 800 and 1000 yards (1800 yars
for .50 BMG). Pending on the distance click the
bullet drop compensator to the appropriate setting. This will automatically adjust your reticle
for that particular distance. Your scope also
comes with other cams allowing you to change
your bullet drop compensator to work with the
different rifles.

All of the following formula are equivalent to the
one above for estimating range.
R = range in meters, H = target size in inches,
M = mil-radians of the image:
R = 25.4 * H / M
R = range in yards, H = target size in inches,
M = mil-radians of the image:
R = 27.78 * H / M
R = range in yards, H = target size in feet,
M = mil-radians of the image:
R=333.3 * H / M

CHANGING THE BULLET DROP
COMPENSATOR
Set the bullet drop compensator to the 200yard range). Then remove the elevation dust
cover from the cam. Next you will find three
small set screws on the bullet drop compensator right above the yardage numbers. Remove
these screws and lift the cam off of the scope.
Once you have done this select the desired
caliber cam you would like to use and place
this cam where you removed the previous one
(make sure that a replacement cam is set to the
200-yard range. Then tighten the cam in place
by putting the three set screws back. Finally
replace the dust cover.

MAINTAINING YOUR RIFLE SCOPE
Your rifle scope is waterproof and shockproof.
However, you should never try to take apart or
clean it internally (it will void your warranty). If
your scope ever does need repairs or adjustments, it should be returned to ATN’s service
department. The exposed optical surfaces
will perform their best if they are occasionally
wiped clean with a lens cloth or with optical
quality lens paper like those for eyeglasses or
5
camera lenses. Maintain the metal surfaces of
your rifle scope by removing any dirt or sand
with a soft brush so as to avoid scratching the
finish. Wipe down the scope with a damp cloth
and follow with a dry cloth. Finally, going over
the tube with a silicone treated cloth will restore
luster and protect the scope against corrosion.
Be careful not to touch the any of the lenses
with the silicone cloth.
