    Yes, you can use the higher powers if you know the actual yardage values; i.e.. the 6 line may be 580 yards or 620 yards. You will need to play with the calculator a bit and trick it to get the data. Or use another ballistic computer and see what your bullet drop is at those distances and calculate it from there. Another option is to use a cheat sheet that has how many clicks to adjust the turret to make the lines work for their specified yardage. You may need to dial up or down just a couple of clicks. There are several ways to do what you are asking. You just need to sit down at the range and try them. See which method works best for you.
