Response to Hector Medina or anyone who really knows
Bob D, Mark, and LD are right.
I understand your frustration and I apologize for not being clearer.
In reality what matters is what matters to YOU.
Since, as LD says, in AAFTA's Hunter Class FT you are not allowed to click, you ONLY need to know how many clicks you need to move ONE DIVISION in your scope, that will help you get zeroed with one shot, if you are steady enough.
So, set your targets at the 1000" mark (27 yds 4' 2") set the scope to zero and then click up 40 clicks, measure THROUGH YOUR SCOPE IN DIVISIONS, and now you KNOW how many clicks/division at 12X your scope has.
That's all there is to it. If the first shot lands 2½ divisions left, or right, or up, or down, you will KNOW how many clicks to correct to get Zeroed.
Now, in springers, I would not start correcting before the 20th shot has been fired. I take to the range a little baggie with 20 "plinking pellets" that I use to get the internals up to "working conditions". THEN I start zeroing.
EVENTUALLY, you will start getting interested in what is the relation between scope divisions and sizes (dimensions) way out at the target, because this is what bracketing is all about. But for the time being, as Bob D says: breath, relax, get USEFUL information; and enjoy the trip.
Hope this clarifies somewhat all the mess.
Keep well and shoot straight!
