Box test the scope & determine it's ACTUAL inches per hundred yards (IPHY) dialing.
There are not a lot of scopes that actually dial in true moa.
I know NF NXS does not, while Leupold Mk4s do.
Are you sure about that? 6 feet is a lot of drop.Just a 5 degree difference at 500 yards will make a world of difference. So instead of calculating for 500 yards you would need to calculate for 498 yards. That’s A 6’ difference in drop.
I believe you meant 6 inches instead of 6 feet. There is no way a bullet will drop 6 feet in 2 yards at 500 yards, is there? Asking for a friendMy 260 Remington with 140 grain Berger’s have 24.75 MOA’s of drop. But convert that to inches it’s like 259”. People get stuck on the MOA’s and Mill’s on there dope but forget about the actual inches.
