Easy answer is 20 clicks. At 100, your scope adjusts for the labeled amount. Moving out to 200, it will move twice that, 300, 3 times that, 400, 4times that, 500, 5 times that, etc.

Divide by the factor to determine your clicks. As long as the drop is in the same calibration as your scope, you'll be close. A ballistics program will allow you to change from cms to clicks as a cross check.
