    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,
