Default Mark 4 scope owners...I have questions

I picked up my Mark LR/T M3 mil-dot scope with lighted reticle this weekend after years of wanting one. What a deal, everyone sells them for $1310 and I only have $750 in it! This is it-
http://www.opticsplanet.net/leupold-...fle-scope.html

It came with three turrets
.308 165 grain
5.56 55 grain
.300 mag 190 grain

I am using it on a 6.8 SPC with 110 grain accu-points. I figure I will have to compare ballistics between it and the turrets I have and use the closest to it? Or is there a better way without having order new turrets?

Here's some outstanding info on your scope.
Leupold might have done some testing with your caliber. Might have to contact them directly. See the link below.

Cool. Thanks!

I think I will just stay with dialing in with MOA, 6.8 ballistics limit me to around 280 yards anyway.
