Default Mil dot holdover disagreement

So a Remington 700 .300 wm I just put together for someone has a Leupold LRT on it, and the max dial up is 42 MOA over his zero. It equals out to about 1150 yards. If trying to hit a 1700 yard target (size known), wouldn't the correct calculation be to subtract the drop in MOA at 1700 yards which is 88.2 based on data from JBM ballistics and a correct chrono average, from 42, which is the scope maxed out, which would be 46.2 MOA. IF one MIL at 100 yards = 3.43 MOA, at 1700 it should be 58.3 MOA or a 1.7 MIL holdover max dial up right? We're going back and forth over it. Any help? Thanks.
