Default Need help counting clicks.

I am going to shoot at 1,000 yds for score. I need to know how many clicks I need to hit the paper from a 200 yd. zero.
I have the JBM calculator set a 1,000 yard zero and the highest point the bullet travels is a +27.1 MOA.

How many clicks is this? I figure it is 108.4 clicks. What do you think?

Thanks in advance,

gt40

PS: Sorry guys I grabbed the wrong chart to post. I figured to see how high the bullet would be above my 200 yd. zero and what the drop at 1000 yds. would be.

Now I have the correct chart posted.

This is a guess, as I have know experience shooting this kind of distance. This is based on guesstimates only, no science. Your scope will dictate how many clicks. Many target scopes are 1/8" or 8 clicks to an inch @ 100yds. The most common are 1/4" per, 4 clicks per @ 100. Some are 1/2" 2clicks per inch @ 100. We'll work with 4 per inch @ 100 because it's the most common. Too move the point of aims elevation 1" @ 100 requires 4 clicks. 1" @ 50 would require twice the amount, 8 clicks for a 1" change in point of aim. 1" @ 200 would only require half the the number required @ 100, 2 clicks would change point of aim 1". Assuming 4 clicks per and two inches high @ 100, I'd start @ 110 clicks. I know from shooting 22lr @ 100 yds, many scopes don't have enough internal adjustment to lob standard target velocity ammo in at that range. You may need a 20 MOA base to get enough adjustment. I have to move my 1/8 scope around 55 clicks between 50yds and 100yds. Let us know what you find out, not that I'll ever need to shoot that far, I'd just like to know. Good Luck, Chuckdog.

The best thing to do is think in MOA, not clicks. Most scopes adjust in 1/4" or .25 MOA. For simplicity, treat MOA and IPHY (inches per hundred yards) the same. When you put the information into JBM, set your zero to 200 (your actual zero), not your target distance. Then look at how much it drops. If it drops 30 MOA, dial in 30 MOA or inches in your scope. 4 clicks will equal 1 MOA or inch. Its much easier to adjust in MOA or IPHY than clicks, its also easy to come back to your zero. Kinda like its more convenient to count to 30 than it is 120.

Are you trying to click a standard dial? M1 or TT have moa marked, no counting clicks.

I've never shot long range, but I'm intrigued by it. All my rifles are hunting rifles with hunting scopes. I don't move the scope after it's zeroed. I have dropped a deer at 250 and shot just in front of a trotting coyote's shoulder at 330, so I'm confident in my shooting ability. Sometime in the future, I may look into a target rifle with a scope with target turrets. I would really like to learn how to shoot like the snipers on the discovery channel where you not only have to adjust for distance, but also for weather conditions. I think they call it "doping the wind."

use the big game ballistic calculator. it tells how many clicks and moa.

I would first contact the scope manufacture and tell them what you are wanting to do.Probably get the best answers there.

Get a scope with moa marked on turrets and you won't have to count clicks. Counting that many clicks would make me wanna switch to something stupid like golf.

The JBM will give you the answer, but you have to set the Zero at 200 yards and then add the MOA difference between 200 yds and 1000 yds. From the chart you posted... you got it backwards.

BUT you came up with the correct answer of 27.1 MOA

The chart in my first post is from JBM. I did it both ways with a 200 yd. zero and a 1,000 yd. zero to see how high the bullet would be above the 200 yd. zero.

Copy & paste the chart to your desk top then go to advanced and bring it in. This Forum is the easiest to post pictures or other stuff than any other Forum I visit.

PS: I grabbed the wrong post the first time and now changed to the right one.

You will probably need a 20MOA base or else the Burris rings with the inserts.

I occasionally shoot in a long range rimfire silhouette match and I just count the clicks between each yardage. It's a little tedious but pretty foolproof.

Yes that chart looks better ...

Is your practice range limited to 200 yds?

108.4 clicks looks right, but you'll probably need shims or specialized mounts. If your just doing it as a lark, do it and have a blast, but folks that shoot 1000yds regularly set up rifles specifically for that.

Kinda like your moniker, you can race a GT-40 in your BMW and have fun, just don't expect to beat it...
