another Trajectory question Sorry

ok, my bullet 22lr, sight in @ 50 yds, and the drop in inches @ 100 yards is 4.84 inches @200 yards drop 40.35 @ 300 yards drop is 117.91 inches.

so my scope is 1/4 inch @ 100 yards.
is this correct;
50 yard Zero ;

100 yards click would be 4.84 / 0.25 = 19 clicks?

200 yards click would be 40.35 / 0.5 = 80 clicks?

300 yards click would be 117.91 inch drop / 0.75 clicks =157 clicks?

does this sound right?

    It all looks good but I'd go one more click at 200. A lot of ballistic calculators will tell you how many clicks along with corresponding MOA so you don't have to calculate each time.

    You are not accounting for the scope height above the center of the bore.

    Zero at 100yds.

    Then look at a ballistics calculator that accounts for your scope height and plug in the appropriate information and you'll end up much closer to accurate.
