The group shown indicates, to me, that as you get more confidence in yourself, rifle and load plus reading conditions two shots may become sufficient. Remember that the objective is to place a cold barrel first shot at the point of aim.
You seem to be where I was and still tend to be. Your target reveals inches (in thirds?), yards and Mils. I can't wrap my head around all of that.
Its good that your turret and reticle are the same units Mil/Mil.
1 mil = 3.6" @ 100yds.
@ 500 yds 1 Mil = 5*3.6 = 18"
Your group is about 3.666666666666667" (
3.666666666666667 / 18 = 0.203703703703704 (the width of a mil dot).
You don't have a center mil dot so ya gotta click. (I don't know the width of the cross hair)
Go down as close as you can to 0.2 Mils on your turret. Its good to see that you are shooting well enough to see the difference in 1 click at 500. Good goin'.
Or leave it the way is is and talk in MOE or MOD (Minute of Elk or Minute of Deer)
Sorry for the decimal places, I copied and pasted from the calculator, but the process reveals a bit of the way my head works which really sucks when switching from a scope that is Mil/" and IPHY/IPHY, or having to convert from MOA to Mil in the field. Which is why I said that your MIL/MIL scope is a good choice.
I don't know where the roughly 0.1" = 0.33 mils @ 100 came from. Roughly will roughly getcha in trouble some time or another. Roughly works well in floating point math where 2 + 2 can = 5. For very large values of 2 and vary small values of 5.
It's not so good for LRH.
