Tell us what numbers you're putting in and it will be easier to tell what the problem is.

This doesn't make sense -- are you saying that you have to hold over by 6.5 moa?

I don't know what kind of scope you have so I can't check the clicks. Also, tell us what caliber you're shooting so we can find it on the Remington website.

I think the numbers you're quoting would be right with a 200 yard zero. Either way, it's still going to drop like a rock past 400 yards.

Also, how do you know your velocity? Did you measure it or estimate it?

Re: please help with drop chart

shootin a 22-250 out of 26 in barrel
got velocity around 3700.. using a load found at loadyourown.com and it has the muzz. vel.

from the calculations i did.. I "Should" hold over somewhere around 6.5 moa or about 28-30 inches... when shooting today at 450 yds.. i clicked up 20 clicks from a 100 yd zero which is 5 moa high or about 22 inches.. with these values i still shot about 4 inches high.. so i really should shootin 27 ckicks high, but i shot 22 today and was over by 4 inches.. that is my problem. also shootin a tasco varmit.. i knmow its a cheap scope but i have had no problem trackin with it, so its shootin good. thanks jbm ... i appreciate all teh help
