Burris Scope Adjustment Question

Good afternoon everyone -

Let me start by saying that I have been shooting rifles for a while now, but mostly out to 100 yards with the occasional shots out to 200 yards. That being said, I'm new to long range (200+ yards to me) shooting and have minimal experience as far as doping scopes for elevation and wind. My two main rifles (Savage 110 in .270 Win and Savagea 12 in .22-250) both have Burris Fulfield II scopes (with traditional plex and ballistic plex respectively). Both scopes are marked to adjust 1/4 (.25) inch at 100 yards. How would those adjustments change at 200 yards, 300 yards, etc? Thanks in advance.

Re: Burris Scope Adjustment Question

1/4 moa= 1/4'' at 100, 1/2'' at 200, 3/4'' at 300, 1'' at 400yds and so on.
So 1 click will move bullet impact 1, 1/4'' at 500yds, and 2, 1/2'' at 1k.
Remember Burris FFII's are not well labled for scope adjustment, but theyre solid as a rock. I own a couple and love em'.
Clockwise =crosshairs up/ bullet impact down- elevation
Clockwise =crosshairs right/ bullet impact left- windage
Obviously counter-clockwise has the opposite effect on bullet impact.
