I'm playing with Leupold 1000i TBR. The device lets you choose the units of holdover you want, inches, mils, moa.

Question is, they give the holdover in terms of a 200 yard zero. I have rifle zeroed at 100 yds. Is it good enough to just use my ballistics info to adjust the scope 2 moa (adjustment from 100 to 200) and then use their holdover from there? Or should I get a true 200 yard zero? I want to be able to shoot accurately out to 800 yards which is the practical limit of their holdover calculation. I've already compared real world results with the ballistics table I'm using, and it's right on the money out to 600 yards.

All this does assume temp, barometer, and humidity are roughly the same.

Also, the nice thing about the lrf is that it compensates for shooting angles. I don't want to have to depend on that though; is there a good rule of thumb for compensating for angles?
