Yup! That's correct too.

Re: MOA question

LOL!

This is an easy one!

I'd run 150 yards closer and dial on the dope for 600 yards, "bang - flop"

I'd also start a new thread, we're hijacking this one.

Re: MOA question

To get a more accurate way of knowing what your drop is, shoot your rifle through a chronograph and take your average velocity, and plug it into the formula in a bullet path chart like sierras infinity program. This will tell you everything you want to know and how many moa to put on that deer at 750. It also saves alot of wear on your barrel instead of testing every yardage to find out what your drop is.
