Turrent adjustment confusion

If you sight in your rifle at 100 yards and you range a deer at 645 yards what adjustment to your turrents would you make. Do most LR scopes have a 1/4 or 1/8moa adjustment............................How do you know how many clicks

Totally in the Dark......................

In the past I would sight in so that my bullet according to the ballistic tables showed that for me to be right on at 300 yards I had to sight in so many inches high at 100 That way from 100 to 400 I new I could pretty much hold dead center and make a hit. Once past 400 I was lost............... Have no idea of how many clicks in elevation to make to have the bullet hit at what ever range you range finder gave you..............

Re: Turrent adjustment confusion

The majority of scopes have 1/4 minute clicks....each click raises ( or lowers) the bullet 1/4" at 100 yards

As far as how to hit way out there...you should have run a ballistic program on your round...plugging in the BC of the slug.....your velocity at the muzzle and tell the program where you are zero'd at ( distance) and it will spit out to you how much drop at each 50yard distance all the way to 1000 yards.....and how many inches you need to come up and how many MOA's you have to adjust to get it dead center at "X" distance

Re: Turrent adjustment confusion

so if you have the data and it says that at 625 yards you bullet will drop 26.36 inches what adjustments do you make on your scope assuming it has 1/4moa?

For giggles I played with your numbers. I came up with 16.87 clicks. Probable wrong. But I think that should be close?

Re: Turrent adjustment confusion

Need more info to help you out. Specifically, the caliber and weight and name of the bullet you're launching, as well as the velocity.
My 140 amax's need 12.2moa(49 clicks) with a 100yd zero and 2900mv to get there.
My 300 bergers need 12.4(50 clicks) with a 2700mv
250 bergers need only 10.6moa at 2900mv
Been a while but I believe my 155 scenars needed about 12.5 minutes at 2820mv

Sorry didn't finish out the math for you 67.48 clicks or 16.78 on your dial. Not exact. , but close enough I wouldn't want you shooting at me .

Re: Turrent adjustment confusion

so how do you convert inches to clicks? Some programs will give you bullet drop every 10 yards.

In your opinion is elevation clicks better and more accurate than recticle lines in your scope like the NF Velocity reticles...........................?
