Thanks again, Eric
I found a 2006 Leupold catalog using Google and it states 1/4 moa
clicks for the LPS. Here's the link:
Provided your scope is manufactured and behaving exactly to this design specification, one click of your elevation adjustment should move your POI 0.262" at 100 yds.
How to know for sure? As 7mmRHB described. It's not terribly difficult, but as you found out, it does require a means of holding the rifle stationary while you crank the turret up and down and measure the movement on the 100 yd target. Make sure you know the exact range to your 100 yd target. I ranged mine with my Swaro LRF and found out it was actually 104 yds. That works too. Just requires a slight modification to the mathematical solution for inches/click/100yds. After I ran through this field-proofing procedure the first time, it wasn't long before I'd performed the process on each of my long-range use scopes.
