Now if you turn the same adjustment then what about a 3X magnification or 9x or anywhere in between? Nothing i have read said anything about a second adjustment, just that you adjust the magnification to "glass" your target then dial up for the load.... not sure i like that but im hooked on leupold scopes and i wouldnt mind a 300 yard crack at a coyote or two. Thanks.
Search the post by Roluaghlin for info on custom long range scopes. I don't claim to understand it completely but he shoots long range regularly.

Personally, I go to handloads.com, load in the bullet BC and FPS to calculate the estimated projection path. It's pretty accurate but would require holdover estimate for long range.
