It says the bullet will drop @ 950 yards, -1974 inches, and the Elevation MOA is -207
Question, is -207 the clicks on the scope? To adust angle to reach bulls eye?
Question, or is the CLICKS -1974 times 4 inches = 7896 clicks?
Question, Does my scope or any scope have that many CLICKS?
starting to understand
Something is terribly wrong wit the data you are inputting into your program. I'm not even sure that a square brick would have a BC that bad.
Exactly what bullet are you using?
As for your scope adjustments we'd need to know exactly what make scope you are using.
Typically scopes are going to have 1/4" or 1/4 MOA click values meaning 4 clicks = 1" at 100yds or 4 clicks = 1 MOA @ 100yds.
For anything more than very minor adjustments you don't want to be counting clicks because if you have a large click value of say 50-100 clicks or more it's very easy to lose track of where you are in the adjustment process and then you even end up losing your original zero point unless you have a scope with a zero stop feature.
Welcome, have fun.
