Scope Elevation adjustment from 100 to 200



Log in to see fewer ads
I am going to try shooting at 200 yards for the first time this week . My scope is currently zeroed at 100 yards . My scope is mil. Can anyone get me in the ballpark as to how many miles up Iíll need to add to be on target at 200 yards?

Thank you

Set up at 100 yards. Y'er already dialed in at 100.
Set a big section of cardboard on the frame.
Set an aimpoint at the bottom of the cardboard.
Set a series of marks vertically above the aimpoint, 1 inch intervals, at 16 through 22 inches.
With 22lr rated 1080 fps, at 100 yards adjust the crosshairs
until the point of impact is 19 inches above point of aim.
Then move over to the 200 yard range and fine tune to fit current conditions.
Record your final turret settings for the ammunition and conditions.
Using this method minimizes the possibility of unintended strays,
also unexpected consequences.

If you are shooting ammo that is 1060-1100 fps, about 6 mil should put you on the paper at 200. This is about what I dial using Center X.

If you want to calculate it, there are a few simple options.

You can download a free version of Strelok on your phone, and enter your data to get in the ballpark.

I've also used this site - https://shooterscalculator.com/ - to calculate and print out a ballistic chart hard copy.

They don't always agree, but either will get you close. I will fudge velocity to make simple adjustments to get the settings where I think they should be, but there are more advanced settings on upgraded versions.

Based on my 100 yard zero, and using these calculations, I recently took my Savage .308 out to 1000 yards for the first time. Even with just the basic info, first shots were right on-target.

It depends on a few things.

Assuming standard velocity 40 gr ammo with a BC of .132, a muzzle velocity around 1060 FPS, a 1.7” sight height, at sea level and 60 degrees, going from a 100 yard zero to 200 yards will require about 18 3/4 MOA.

If the weather warms to 90 degrees you’ll only need about 18 MOA.

If it cools to 30 degrees you’ll need about 19 3/4 MOA.

Worst case if you zero on a hot summer day and then show up on a 30 degree day to shoot you’ll need about 20 1/4 MOA at 200 yards.

That’s roughly a 2 1/4 MOA / 5” difference at 200 yards.

However that’s also not taking into account the change in velocity due to change in ammo temp.

But ball park, dial in 19 MOA with standard velocity ammo and adjust from there.
