Need Scope Dial Numbers out to 500

Hoping someone can help me out...
I was at the range the other day with my 7mm-08 that has a Burris C4 scope with a dial with numbers on it with 1/4 lines between the numbers. A guy at the range used the expensive version of a ballistic calculator on his phone called BulletFlight and was able to tell me out to 500 yards in 25 grain increments the 25 yard numbers to use on my scope (based on having sighted it in for 100 yards).
I don't seem to be able to figure out how to get this same info. using different programs on the web for my .243 Win load below. Can anyone help?
.243 Win.
.70 grain Sierra MK
.299 Ballistic Coeffient
3325 velocity

Basically, I want to range a target and then know what number on my scope to turn to for it to have the correct elevation out to 500 yards.

I use BulletDrop+ on my iPhone, and it was like $1.99.....It will give you accurate readings if you input accurate data. Works great for me. never leave home without it.

You can select Mils or MOA, out to 2000 yards, and you can store your load data for quick acquisition later on. You can also select for it to show you in 25, 50, 75, or 100 yard increments what your adjustments should be.

I wish I could help, but I am strictly an iPhone user, so I can't help you with Droids.

"Shooter" is a very good app for a Droid. Top notch ballistic app with plenty of data and options. It cost $10

Why not just use the Ballistic Calculator that is part of this website. On the toolbar is a G7 Ballistic Calculator,
