How to figure my clicks on turret for this data

I have a Zeiss Conquest 6 x 20 x 50 that 1/4 inch clicks.
My 300RUM shoots 190 grain Berger VLD with 5.7 BC at 3200 FPS

My load data is below how to I figure how many clicks for 500 and 1000 yards?
I did the math and want to see if I am close. The inches drop at various ranges are below.
100 zero
200 -1.1
300 -2.8
400 -4.8
500 -7.0
600 -9.5
700 -12.2
800 -15.1
900 -18.3
1000 -21.9

    If the scope is set up in IPHY with 1/4 inch clicks and zeroed at 100 yards and at 4000 foot elevation the approximate click adjustment at 500 yards would be "27" and at 1000 yards it would be "85"
    The IPHY elevation adjustment at 500 yards would be 6.75 and 21.25 at 1000 yards.

    If the scope is set up in MOA with 1/4 MOA clicks and zeroed the same as above then the approximate click adjustment at 500 yards would be "26" and at a 1000 yards "81"
    The MOA elevation adjustment at 500 yards would be 6.5 and 20.25 at 1000 yards.

    This all comes from Exbal and are approximate. To many unknown variables to be accurate.
