Rifle, Remington 700 SPS Tact AAC-SP Scope: Viper PST 6-24x50 MRAD Retical Load: 308 Winchester, AMAX Match, 168 GR, 2700 fp (HOrnady) Range: 999yrds Alititude: Sea Level Temp:60degrees Wind: none Bullet drop: -378in (using JBM Calculator) That would be close to 37.837 MOA??? Converted to MILs or MRADS would be 10.51??? First time using scope with MRAD .1 turrets Each Rotation is 5MRADs if 1 click of elevation is .1 MRAD Would that be 105 clicks of elevation??? Am i even Close??

As I understand it at 1000yards 1 mrad=36inches so your calculations would be spot on. Another way to look at it is that 1mrad/mil= 1/1000 of the distance, which should work whether you're measuring in meters or yards as I understand it.

Are those handloads or factory loads? If they are factory loads have you shot them over a chronograph? Because that velocity seems a bit high for a 20" barrel. I would expect your velocity to be about 2,600 fps.

Allaroundhunter, i havent chronographed this round, its a factory round. I was just trying to get the math portion down, so i picked a round out of the blue, and was just trying to go through the steps leading up to firing. Never fired this round, but i do understand your point. The velocity on my rifle would be closer to 2600. Again thanks for the check...
