    I am planning on using a Buckmaster 4.5-14 scope with Mil Dot reticle for elevation holdovers as I am too dumb to range with it! I plugged some numbers in a ballistic calculator to get some ranges that I will naturally have to verify at the range. If I started out with the main intersection 1.5"s high and then plugged in 5.1"s high (1.5" + 3.6") at 100 yards and checked the results to see where my bullet will be zeroed at, is this close? I then added 3.6" to that (8.7"s) and submitted again. Again I found where my bullet will be zeroed at and wrote it down. Will this give me a good starting point for holdovers or am I missing something? Go easy on me I am new here! /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
