why spend 30 buck when you can spend 30 min doing a little math and make your own drop chart and tape it to your stock?

    One more ? if im shooting 200 yrds at a 2 deg downhill angle
    and did my math this way
    11.27* .999=11.258
    4.43-11.258=-6.82
    3.6*200=7.2
    -6.82/7.2=-.94
    so that means i would aim .94 mills low at 200 yrds or am i doing this wrong?

    better yet, spend $75 for Exbal with the reticle calculator tool and you can figure drops for any scope first or second focal plane with any caliber.
