How do we get 15" or 17" drop when the 8.3 MOA on my ballistics chart aligns with 189 yards? (I shortened the increments to fit in the page). I can see a 15" or 17" drop if I use the center of the crosshair but not the heavy edge of the vertical post.

I just went back. We read your earlier post right, you just aren't understanding what your ballistic chart is telling you.

Your chart is telling you that at 189 yards your round will be hitting 8.3" low. That is actually about 4 MOA. Your chart is not giving you the drop in MOA, it is giving it in Inches. Those two are only roughly equal at 100 yards.
