Nikon BDC question

I've been looking at a Monarch with the BDC reticle for a short to mid range rifle. (500 yd max) However I can't seem to find any information on how much drop each circle compensates for.

So if any one knows where to find out or knows from personal testing, I'd appreciate the info.

Thanks in advance
Chris

    circles are all 2" at 100 and max power

    first circle is 2"

    2nd circle is 4.5"

    3rd circle is 7"

    4th cirlce is 11"

    use ballistic program such as exbal to figure exact ranges for your gun and MV

    Thanks BH, at least now I can do a little math and see how close I match up at their designated ranges.
