I understand that going from 100 yards to 200 yards to 300 yards, etc. requires me to adjust the scope's elevation to compensate for the bullet's drop. I also understand that once I've figured out how many clicks of elevation I need from my 100 yard zero to reach each distance, I can make a write down those numbers and keep them for future reference (i.e. dope). The same goes for windage when the wind is blowing.

However, how does one actually go about figuring out how much elevation is needed at each distance? Do I simple put a target at 200 yards elevate the point of aim by 10 clicks and see if I am on the paper. If not, then raise it another 10 clicks and keep doing this until I get it right? Or, is there a way of knowing about how much elevation I will need at each distance given my rifle, scope and calibre? Can u give me more info?
