Does anybody know what the range bar MOA values are for the rabid z-800 reticle is when the scope is at maximum power?

Zeiss has a web site that tells you the magnification power to set your scope to calibrate the rapid z reticle to your particular balistics.  but when shooting long range, it's counterproductive to lower the magnification power to calibrate the reticle.  But if I knew the MOA values for each bar range when the scope is at maximum magnification power, I could easily figure out what my holdover, or additional MOA compensation, is for each range bar.
 
Short of clamping the rifle in a vise zeroed at 100 yards, and then adjusting the vertical turrit till each subsequent range bar reads zero and recording the amount of MOA dialed in, I can't think of any other way.  I contacted Zeiss but with the question but they won't respond.

Did you call Zeiss or email?  I''ve found its much faster and normally more productive to call them vs email from dealing with them in the past.

On the rapid-z calculator page, the first column is labeled actual holdover value, and the second is labeled calibration hold over value. I'm assuming the first column is the value at max power, and the second is value at the optimim calibration setting. I may be wrong on this, but according to my math, it works out about right.
