1. ## scope

was out today doing a bit of practise on a gong at 300yds . now if my scope adjusts 0.5cm each click at a 100yds how many would it need to move it 100mm at 300yds ? being a bit thick but a bit new to target turrets
thanks for any help

2. 5mm equals 0.5cm, therefore you need to move POI by 10cm which is 20 clicks.

3. Each click at 300m is 15mm so 7 clicks is 105mm at 300m

4. Agree with Tack B, .5cm @ 100 = 1.5 @300 therefore 10cm/1.5cm = 6.6666, round up to 7.

5. it's helpful if you forget linear distance at target and re calibrate your mind to think in angles , so in your case above it would be 3.5mils , so 7 clicks on a .5mil scope

I'll hazard not ? I was explaining to the op in simple terms and would have confused him if i'd said 274m(I knocked of the last 32cm,didn't think it was required)

I would suggest that the op would be better off working in one style either imperial or metric , mixing them up is adding more room for error ?

never been to sniper school as i'm not a sniper , i'm a hairy arsed crane engineer that likes shooting .............
