Describe your turret please, or tell me what scope you have so I can see or get a pic.
If your scope turret lists what 1 for one inch, 2 for two inches and so on, what you do is set up your ballistic software for 1/8 inch clicks.
Then your drop chart will be speaking the same language your scope understands.
Don't think in inches but rather in numbers. If it takes 6 1/8 inches at 100 yards for a 600 yard connection, instead of counting clicks or trying to think in MOA, simply dial your turret (assuming it has been zeroed) to the number 6 on your turret and add one click for the 1/8. hopefully your turret cap will also have a longer or bolder line for the 1/2" point as well.
Thank you for the welcome to LRH! I recently found this site while looking for resources.
Here is the link to the scope I have mounted on the rifle:
8.5-25×44AO Tactical*•*Mueller Optics
You mention not thinking in inches but rather in numbers and give the example of 6 1/8 inches. My turret is marked with MOA markings, you will see in the photo on the link I sent you
That is why I focus on dialing in MOA. If I had to think in numbers and the drop was say 40 inches needed in elevation it would be much easier to dial that in MOA since that is what the turret has markings for.
Thanks for the input!
