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

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.

x2 It is also on the Android market. Very user friendly.
