But anyways, as mentioned before, I think if you got a real tall target and used a level to make a straight line vertical and horizontal, that would help you figure out exactly how many clicks you need. Because if you have no holes to show where you hit, then you have no way to improve, which I think is what you've already found out.
I have my scope on a 20 MOA rail so I am able to turn my turret at least 140 clicks past my zero of 200 yds. I just counted 48 clicks in one revolution.
I am shooting a 6mm Norma BR. which is very accurate, but drops like a rock. The turret maker only went 2 revolutions which only got me to 900 yds. I haven't shot on paper past 400 yds. only gongs out to 1,200 and didn't record my clicks out that far and the elevation was about 4,000 feet higher in altitude from what I had my turret made.
I am planning to set up an eight foot target at 200 yds. this coming weekend to try what rscott5028 has suggested.
Here is the target which was the first time I tested my custom turret at 400 yds to see if I was going to be on the paper. To say the least I was very happy.
