help figuring out come up

i need to figure out how to get come up. im shooting a 223 with 50gr v-max at 3275fps. i have a 3-9 leupold tactical on it with 1/4 inch clicks

at 300 it drops 11.2
at 350 it drops 18.1
at 400 it drops 27.2

what do i need to figure out how "many" clicks that i will need? is there a formula that will help me out?

    Sask,

    Just multply the value of your clicks by the distance your shooting at say your shooting at 400 yards .25*4=1, at that range 1 click is one inch, then you divide the drop by distance per click, so at 400 yards you need 27 clicks and at 300 you need 15 clicks
    Good Shootin,
    Brian
