I have been using one for a few years now and really like it. It has a 4" radius, so that's equivalent to an 8" wheel, however it can be turned so it easily fits into most rifle cases.

The major downside is you have to measure & mark every yard. For example, you can usually set a target at 20 and 25 yards, then mark your sidewheel. Then take the distance inbetween them and divide that into the 21, 22, 23, 24 marks. You can't do this on the comma because it's not linear.

The problem I found in measuring the distance particularly after 25 M on the side "complete" wheel.
The comma side wheel may help in getting accurate readings at those distances till 50 M.
Your thoughts??

Sorry, I'm not following what you've written. Could you please try to explain it differently?

On a complete side wheel, the marks of distances beyond 25 m become "too crowded". I think that the comma configuration
allows a wider spacing between the distance marks from 30-50 m.

perhaps you don't have the comma oriented properly?

Measure out 55 yards and focus on your target there. Then put the comma on so the widest part is just at this 55 mark. Then tighten the comma on and do the rest of your yards. You should have at least 5mm between your 50 and 55 marks. I could easily define 1 yard differences between 50 and 55 yards.
