You should consider mirage also. The higher the power, the more mirage will bother you. I have a 8-32x56 NF on a long range rifle and usually set it on 28 until the mirage begins. Then I have to back it down around 18 to 20 to get a "good" picture when at 1K.

    300 grain Bergers with a .8 BC at 2900 fps would get me to 2k with under 75 moa drop...and I don't need to be trying near that until I can read wind.
