To some degree, any scope having a duplex reticle can be used for range estimation since it contains several exact widths and heights that will subtend predetermined measurements at distances you can then estimate. Indeed, Leupold explains how to do this with literature that accompanies its scopes, and we teach you these techniques in the range estimation section.
Some scopes come with special range estimation devices, such as the mil dot reticles in Leupold and Unertl military sniperscopes. Range estimation is a worthwhile feature in a sniperscope, with mil dots slightly edging out other types because they're fast to use and do not add any moving parts to the scope.
