Re: Figuring Drop based on "Come Ups"?
Well good information has been given so far; but in my opinion, not complete information.
It depends on how your scope is calibrated: many scopes are calibrated so that one click equals 1/4" at 100 yards, many others are calibrated so that one click equals 1/4 MOA at 100 yards. To complicate matters, some scopes are 1/8th or 1/10th inch/MOA at 100 or 1cm/click at 100. And in truth; especially with low to mid grade scopes, what they are supposed to be calibrated to and what they are actually calibrated to can vary quite a bit.
So,.......Shoot a group or ten at 100yds, adjust your scope 4 clicks up and repeat. Then, if you're a really anal type move to 200yds and repeat. Do the math and figure out what one click on your scope is equal to.
