I have a new Meopta scope with the bullet drop reticle the scope has been verified and is on to 800 yards matching the reticle plus or minus 1.5" at 500 feet elevation, it has a 200 yard zero, my question is I compare those drop numbers on JMB calculator for 500 feet elevation and to make the reticle line up I need to zero at 235 yards at 500' elevation to make it dead on at 6000' elevation where I hunt, I know the hash marks will now be off for my home elevation, does that sound right? I just used everything the same on JMB just changed the elevation.
