How about a little help from one of you mathematicians? The scope is a 2-7x33mm (2.5-6.6 actual) Leupold Ultimate Slam Muzzle Loader scope with their Sabot Ballistic Reticle which is similar to a wide duplex but with a circle and fine crosshairs in the center. These dimensions of the holdover dot spacings are all in inches and not MOA and at the highest magnification. The first holdover point is the bottom of the circle which is down 4.2", the second holdover dot is down 12.5" and the third is down 26.6". Can someone convert these to reflect the amount of holdover at the LOWEST magnification 2x (2.5x actual)? Again, 4.1", 12.5 and 26.6 is at the highest magnification which is 7x (6.6x actual)

There is a pdf file on the Leupold site that has all this info, pictures and everything.   It's in MOA.   At a quick look, your numbers appear to be way off.

 Check out Body Page 36 (38 of 40).
 I agree with Shenko-your numbers are all wrong if that is the same scope and specs listed there by Leupold.

 He was probably looking at the specs for some other scope. Leupold makes so many different models, I don't know how even they can keep track of them all.
Do you have the scope in hand or are you still shopping?

 You know- if you look at the PDF page 36 again, you will see that the numbers Shawn gave you correspond pretty closely with the lowest magnification shown at the right end of the chart...

You're right, maybe he mis-spoke when saying they were at the highest magnification.  OR i didn't hear him right.
