    which way do you twiddle your knob

    had to get a thread that would get attention!

    worked out my drop, 3 inch 200m and 9inch at 300, got a ar bushnell scope on at the moment but the cocky showed up to move stock before i could work out which way to adjust scope. i presume UP on the scope would be for closer range and further out you want to move the recitle down to allow for drop? and yes i know there is a 100% partical way to find out but would involve a 2hr drive!

    You can end up over thinking the hell out of this

    down moves POI down and up moves POI up.

    Up on the elevation dial refers to up the numerical scale ie 1-2-3-4-5-6 which Will take your projectile impact point further and further out from your zero range.

    The word "up" on your elevation dial refers to a common understanding that you are dialling up for progressively longer ranges.

    It does not designate the direction of crosshair movement, although we know when you dial up - the crosshair drops closer to the barrel centreline.

    Remember that with the scope you are MOVING the bullet not CHASING the bullet

    Can someone work out what my velocity would be? 50gn Amax 223. zero at 150 half inch high at 100, 3 inch low at 200 9 inch low at 275. Tried using stretch but can't seem to get it to do things backwards

    .222 + .223 = .224 cal (obviously)

    Thats close to my service rifle load so i would guess you are in the vicinity of 2950/3000 alright.
