    But, you should verify your scope height (center of tube to center of bore).

    It won't make a huge difference at 500yds. But as you reach out farther, it'll begin to make a notable difference.

    not sure if im doing it right, but heres my calculations:

    47'' of bullet drop
    47/1.25 (click value at 500yards)= 37.6 clicks
    OR

    37.6(clicks)/4 (#of clicks to equal 1 MOA)= 9.4 MOA

    Its not a time consuming as it seems, I calculate this in around 10-20 seconds. Does this forumula seem correct?

    Bulletdrop
    Click value =Actual Clicks

    Actual Clicks
    4 =Total MOA of elevation needed

    Do you have an iPhone or an ipod touch?

    If so, download iStrelok for free. You can pick your reticle (yours is in there), enter your data, and see exactly what you're looking for. Very slick for a free program.

    That's one way to get there.... 9.4 MOA was your answer. So, you would hold just above the 10 MOA vertical hash mark in your reticle. Or, dial up 9.5 Minutes.

    Any of the calculators such as Bullet Flight will spit it out as fast as you can key it in. You can also print a range card in case your iPhone battery dies.
