Typical elevation adjustments needed for 600, 800, & 880 yard shooting, assuming you have a 100 yard zero:  Due to the many different cartridges, bullets, and velocities being used, these numbers are not exact, but will get your 1st shot on the target, in nearly every case.

From 100 yards to 600 yards:  Come up 14 minutes, or 3.9 mil.

From 100 yards to 800 yards:  Come up 23 minutes, or 6.4 mil.

From 100 yards to 880 yards:  Come up 27 minutes, or 7.7 mil.
