cooper 6.5 284 norma

I'm hoping for a little help. I am waiting for my new cooper 6.5/284 and wanted to give the 1,000yd target a crack. The ballistics show a 142grain sierra matchking traveling 2950fps. I am putting a ziess conquest 6.5 to 20 rapid z 600 scope on it. If I sight it in at 100yds using the center cross hairs, then hold on one of the lower reticles until I'm shooting roughly 29 to 30 inches high, will that same reticle be close at 1,000yds

    Depending on the environmental conditions....28 to 29 will put you on the 1000yd mark.

    Not familar with the z600, but the varmit reticule has more wind hold built in and has hash marks a long way down, with 200-300 zero one of the hashes should be close. Try to look at reticules in person.

    Thanks sp6/6, The 600 also has graduation lines all the way down. However, only the first 4 large lines are numbered. I was just trying to see if I could make it a little simpler, and if my calculations were in the ball park and made some sense to someone that has more experience than myself. I just helped build a 1,000yd range and thought I'd give it a whirl. thanks

    Here is what I've done with some of my varmit type set ups.I will dial hold off one of the lower hashes, less to dial, for plinking and targets

    Thanks sp6x6, That's what I'll try. Thought that might work, but wasn't sure.
