Shooting a 22-250 with a vmax 55gr. drop @ 500 yards is app. 38". Using a Leupold VXll scope 6-18 with 1/4" clicks. Zero at 200 yards how many clicks do I need for a 500 yard shot?
THANKS Jerry

    You'd be better off using a mil dot scope for those kind of shots.  I was just out yesterday morning and tried a few 500 yarders w/my 22-250 and 50gr Vmax over 35gr Varget.  I was holding 3 1/2 dots high and was still hitting about 20 inches low.

    Maybe I'm missing something here but I did a simple calc based on 1 click = 1.25 inches at 500 yds.  Drop is 38 inches so rounding = 31 clicks to compensate.  No windage, velocity etc taken into consideration but seems pretty close to your calc above.

    No your calc are good, the program print out is for a 50 gr, and I used a BC of .250, a 55 gr would be slightly higher, however you did it --works well, your gun will be off more that 1 inch anyway.

    Thanks Dale, was getting worried 'cause a guy like me has to keep it simple.  Think I'm losing more brain cells these days than I'm making!

    That is a great website, Dale. The 3x5 cards are nice for field carry.

    Thanks
