Just trying to get my facts straight so any input will be helpful
The "rate" of drop is fairly consistant. i.e., my 300 RUM is zeroed @ 300 yds. At 400 yds the drop is 1.7 MOA, @ 500 yds the drop is 3.5 MOA (approx doubled), @ 600 yds the drop is 5.6 MOA, @ 700 yds the drop is 7.8 MOA, @ 800 yds - 10.2 MOA.
The difference between 300 and 400 is 1.7 MOA, the difference between 400 and 500 is 1.8 MOA, the difference between 500 and 600 is 2.1 MOA, the diff between 600 and 700 is 2.2 MOA and the diff between 700 and 800 is 2.4 MOA.
This would be good for wagging if you're shooting at rocks, but not something to rely on for hunting.
