Ideally you'd want to shoot 2 or 3 distances all during the same day, same conditions and same rest/shooting position. After a few times of doing this and recording the data (shoot paper if possible) then you'll have a pretty good average of what your true "real world" drops are.
Best way to check your scope clicks is to shoot a group at exactly 100 yds.
Then, dial up what should be 20 MOA on your elevation dial.
Next, shoot another group at the same paper but aiming for the original aiming point..............You should end up with 2 groups approx. 20-21 inches apart vertically.
Now, measure the distance between the group centers and divide that by the number of clicks you dialed. If your rifle is shooting good tight groups, this will tell you how many "real world" clicks it takes to dial in your drops. Last scope I did this with, indicated my clicks were actually .36 MOA per click. I verified it a couple more times (once with 10 minutes and once with 15 minutes) just to be sure.
