    Could someone please help me on how to figure out what my clicks will be out to 700 yards. I am shooting a .257 weatherby 110 grain accubond at 3400fps. I have a 8x32x44 scope with 1/8 inch adjustments at 100 yards. I have my scope zeroed at 300 yards
    Thanks

    Useing my No 5 Nosler which doesn't have a 110gr .257 bullet listed, I used the 115gr CT Silvertip bullet @3400 FPS and 300 yard zero with a BC of .453. Into the LEE Shooter program I came out to:
    100= +2.56
    200= +3.22
    300= 0
    400= -7.80
    500= -20.86
    600= -40.10
    700= -66.75
    800= -101.91
    900= -147.99
    1000= -206.75

    This is not your exact bullet and this is not your exact gun, it is a starting point to be able to be fairly close at those ranges.

    As to the clocks I have dont it like this(but I might be wrong):
    if 1 click = 1/8th" @ 100 than that would = 1/4" @ 200 = 3/8" @ 300 = 1/2" @ 400 = 5/8" @ 500 = 3/4" @ 600 = 7/8" @ 700 and 1" @ 800.

    I might be wrong but that is what I have used to go out to 400 so far with my rifles and I was able to bring my groups up and to the left in about 12 shots, from 8" low and 6" right.

    SORRY SAVE

    I don't like it eather and I didn't notice I was typing it.

    I probably should have said that one audible click of your scope, if your scope has 1/8" adjustments at 100 yards should translate to this amount at this range.

    I do love the details that people use on this site and really didn't notice what I was relaying.

    www.biggameinfo.com -punch in your data and print it.

    THEN go out and shoot at 25yd incrments and adjust accordingly then you'll have YOUR settings.

    I used this recently w/a 22-250 and it was dead on out to 450yds ->got lucky.
    My 25-06 was barely on paper.
    I'm back and forth on the mpbr= max point blank range -i don't like the bullet going above a couple of inchs midway in the trajectory.
    Enjoy the software ----------Mike
