See if I have this correct............ 
My scope turrets indicate 1/8" per click @ 100 yards. So let's say there is perfect conditions for shooting and I am zero'd at 100 yards: 
If I adjust 8 clicks that would equal 1" at 100 yards, 2" at 200 yards, 3" at 300 yards, etc. 

OK, if that is correct and I know that the ammo I am shooting is dropping 16" at 500 yards I would need to go up 25 clicks to be zero at 500 yards. 
Am I thinking this through correctly?

Instead of thinking in how much the bullet is dropping, I go to JBM ballistics. Plug in your bullet and muzzle velocity and other factors such as altitude and temp. It will give you the drop corrections in minute of angle, inch per hundred yards, or mils. Of course this is just a rough guide, but in my experience it is pretty close.
