Your user manual should tell you what the click values are.
If it is a mil based scope, usually there are ten clicks per mil. One mil is 3.4MOA.
If it is an MOA based scope it's probably 1 click = 1/4 MOA. 1 MOA equals about 1.04" at 100yds.
Once you figure out what your click values are and the scale you set up you drop chart in either Mils or MOA.
If your drop at 600yds is 3.7 Mils and you have a mil based scope with .10 click values, you dial up from 0-3Mils plus 7 clicks.
If your drop at 600yds is 18.2 MOA and you have a MOA bases scope with 1/4 MOA click values you dial up from 0-18 plus one additional click.
If you don't have the user manual for that scope go to the NF site and look it up.
You can set up a ballistic calculator to figure your drop chart in either mils or MOA depending on which works with your scope.
You don't want to even begin to try counting clicks for big adjustments. If it's 47 clicks, it's damned easy to get off so dial up the MOA on the scale and then add the number of clicks that remain.
