Default NEW TO RIFLE SCOPES, NEED ANSWERS

I just purchased a Millett trs 4-16x50 SFP mildot with 1/4 in turrets from Primary Arms. It will go on a ar15 with 18'' barrel. The mildot reticle is accurate at 10x. Im planning on shooting from 300 to 600 yards. Ranging with the mildot will be done at 10x only, and i understand converting Mils to Moa thanks to HKDAVE.


Question,

What power should i zero the scope at?

When i adjust the turrets for bullet drop, Does the scope have to be in the 10x power to be accurate or can i use it in any magnification?

How do i make a range card?

Do i need to make a range cards for each magnification like 4x, 8x, 10x and 14x for the scope to be accurate at those manification?

And last, The Mildot reticle, It is a dot followed by a hashmark and then another dot. Is the scope from dot to dot 1mil or 1moa? The scope says moa turret adjustments but the reticle is in mildot.

Be easy, im new at this and yes a have used the search button. Thanks for your input.
