Or.... since you know your drops from your scope zero using Point Blank, you can get real close(on paper) by dividing the number of inches of drop by the number of hundred yards to target to get MOA. - referencing the chart above...

50" of drop at 5 hundred yards = 50/5 or 10 moa times the number of clicks per moa on your scope (4) equal come ups. In this case I would have used 40 clicks.

Looking at the stock chart from the calculator its says I should use 38 clicks. This would be two clicks or 1/2 moa difference, at 500 yards that is 2.5" You cannot hold the cross hairs that still...

For 600 yards that would be 86"/6 X 4=57 clicks - Calculator says 55 clicks. Still close enough for casual work on steel gongs.


Great Info Dawgdad this is the stuff I'm lookin for Very Happy . My scope has 1/8 clicks I may do what was suggested by chambered221 and shim the scope to get more adjustment

So how for off the bottom is the scope now and how many moa of adjustment does it have.?

I cannot tell for sure but in the picture your scope looks like a Nikon or Night force with side focus . Those will have 50 moa elevation or 400 1/8 moa clicks! From your 200 yard zero you will need about 36 moa for a .308 168 SMK or 288 clicks up over 200 yard setting.

If your 200 zero is less than 122 clicks off the bottom you will make 1000 yards as is. My Nikon has 5 moa/ revolution(40 clicks) so you will need less than three total revolutions up from mechanical zero.


My 200 yard zero is about 7 moa from the bottom so I have 43 moa of elevation above it. Of course your results will vary with a different gun,mount ,scope system but you may be able to reach out there now without shimming. Plus you will have the mil dots if you are close but not quite there.

I'm not sure how much adjustment I have I need to set my turrets to zero and find out just bin busy this week. The scope is a simmons 44 mag 6-21 mildot with side focus ( witch is great ) and has 1/8 moa adjustments I like so far I just put it on Very Happy

Spec sheet for your scope on Optics planet says you have 45 MOA adjustment range.

If your 200 yard zero is less than 8 moa from mechanical bottom you could have room without shimming to get to 1000 yards. It does not take much of a shim on the rear ring to give you some more elevation range and bring your near zero down a few clicks if you need it.

Please understand I am referencing 200 yard zero and come ups from there as that is where I have mine set up and I am used to doing that on my service rifle sights.

You can run the calculations from a 100 yard zero or any other point you want. The key will be remembering your starting reference on the target turret when you start adding almost 300 clicks! My Nikon has a scale on the turret so I can count 5 moa revolutions and not count indvidual 1/8 moa clicks. I can tell at a glance how far off of mechanical zero I am.
