On my scope I turn it 22 clicks or hash marks, every time I pass the 4th hash mark, there is a number, I understand that each number is 1 MOA. I may be incorrect. But I will click 4 MOA plus to more hash marks and my rifle is dead on for 465-+ meters.
I may have it all wrong, but so far at the known distance I shoot (the 22 click distance) I can put my cold bore shot inside of an orange. Which is awesome for me!!!

I would love it if its 950 yards!!! That means my 1,000 yard shot is ever so close ;)

OK: Here are the known facts.MV 2970-G7 bc.242 guess without knowing exact bullet shape- 85 deg and 900 elevation 180 gr. -.308 100 zero. corrections -350 4.83 moa-- 500 8.92 moa--- 950 26.46 moa. Numbers some where are wrong as the correction for 500 can't be 4.2 moa .

Re: Can you determine range?

Well Im 6 inches low @ 300 yards when shooting from Zero. And its a .300WSM, not a .308

The ballistics calculator for my ammo says 47 inches low @500yards which is spot on for my gun/ammo. I cant help it when I dial in 22 clicks and im 100% zeroed for my 500yard shot. Granted, it may be off as much as 10-15 yards. But it is what it is, 4.2 MOA and im there. I dunno, I can get some video if needed?

For your numbers to be right each number has to be two moa.Whether the gun is a .308 or a 300 wsm has no effect on the calculations.Your drop numbers for 500 are right on but your correction numbers have to be double to get the proper correction. The 107 click number-I have no idea.Wait for people smarter than me for an answer.

My calculator puts you between 900 and 925 yards.
