mil help

i need some help with setting up my mil-dot equipped scope, i know how to use mils in ranging and and currently have it zeroed for 100 yards and know the yardage indicated by the mil-dots but i want to raise the poi from 0 @100 yards to 3.5 inches giving me a PBR zero (target size is 8") of 260 yards and a maximum PBR of 306 yards. the scope is on a rem 700p 308win shooting a 168gr SMK, at 2695fps with a SD of 5 fps, i don't want to mess with clicks or moa calculations, just range look at range card and hold-over squeeze and smile. if anyone knows of a free download program that will tell me the poi of each mil-dots descending from the cross hairs with the above mentioned zero or has one and can PM me their calculations would be great thanks.

Re: mil help

Exbal has the exact function you're looking for. Of course it's not free. JBM can give you the information for free, but it'll take a little more legwork on your part.

Re: mil help

wow a whole 0.02 " at 100 yds different, all i want is to drop a 168gr pill into the vitals of a song dog further away than i care to walk without reason, what does that equal? 2" at 1000 yards? every forum i've been on it all ends up the same, "no its 3.58345092 mm @100,00cm or 1.765 turns less 37 clicks," or some such argument, precison is great. i mean i weigh every bullet and case throat turn, and trickle load every round, but come on 0.02" at 100 yards?! really?!? all i wanted was a simple formula or program to calculate simple hold over on a 8" target without dialing a bunch of dope, i mean i'm shooting song dogs in alberta not taliban in tora bora.
