quick help please!!!!

I have a 7mm shooting 168vld at 3050fps. i also have the huskemaw scope. my turret is set for 7000' elevation but just got the invite to go shooting tomorrow at a 1000 yard range which is at 1000' elevation. being that the turret is set for yardage how can I get a chart for where to set the turret too for my shooting tomorrow?

Thanks
Nick

I don't know of a chart that has this conversion to yardage. Your best bet would be to go to either the G7 calculator listed on this site or the Best of the West site and use the ballistic calculator with your range conitions. Use .333 for click value output. You csn then count the clicks given by the program and correspond this to your turret yardage. Might sound complicated, but it's pretty easy and shouldn't take more than 15 minutes. It would be a lot easier of you have the MOA turret that is supplied with the Huskemaw scope. You could then just dial the MOA for the yardage shown in the program without recording corrected yardages. Hope this helps.

And don't forgat to rezero for conditions at your lower elevation.

Re: quick help please!!!!

Having thought a little more about this and having been in a similar situation there may be a more straight forward approach. I own a couple of Huskemaws with calibrated turrets. Since you will be shooting at a fixed distance and known conditions at the range, I would apply correction factors to your 7000 ft turret. For each 2000 ft elevation change 700-1000 yards come up 2 clicks., about a 6 click up change for 1000 yards. For each 25 degree change in temperature for the same distances, 1 click up , for a drop in temperature, opposite for an increase. I have found that this method gets me very close with my 6.5x284 with comparable ballistic performance to your load. I may not be perfect but you may find it will get you close enough to fine tune for having some fun at 1000 yards. I have used these corrections successfully with changing field conditions while hunting with a fixed turret. I would expect that for 500 yards or less, you would have a total turrret adjustment of no more than 2, maybe 3 clicks up to correct for the elevation change with your load. As previously mentioned in the prior post, I would make sure the 7000 ft turret is zeroed at 200 yards at the 1000 ft range you are visiting.

Ah ballistics turrets no good in my opnion and now we see why. Take your drops and subtract the diffrence from the drops that the ballistic program gives you for the new conditions adjust for the diffrence.

Tell that to a couple of dozen dead mulies, whitetails, coyotes, and antelope, all shot between 500 and 1000 yards with turrets.

I hear you but you hunt the same area right? For a guy who travels all over and shoots diffrent elevations/conditions they are no good past 500m.
