Ignore DROP, Path is what you want to go by.

You probably need to go in and change the measurements on the clicks to mil or moa instead of inches.

First, no one counts "clicks". What is a click? If your scope is in MOA, then we need to be talking in MOA, not clicks. If your scope turrets are .25 moa (1/4 moa, which is common), you would look at the last column. For example, if you are zero'd at 100 yards, for a 300 yard shot, you would need to dial 4.3 MOA up. But with a 1/4 moa turret, you round off, so you would dial 4.25 moa up, which would put you dialed in at 300 yards.

If you were to run your chart in MOA, it should be easier to read and understand. Once you start dialing, you will need to forget about inches and think in MOA (or mils). Once you learn MOA, it's becomes easy to dial/hold for elevation and wind.

so look at the moa chart...look at the 200 yard last column.....my turrent is .25 moa...each click is .25 moa, right? Damn, so 1 click is .25moa?

For 200 yards, you would dial up 1 3/4 MOA. One click less than 2 MOA. Like Chad said, no one counts clicks. Dial to the number and shoot.

300 yards 4 1/4. One click past the number 4 is 4 1/4

Yes, your last column is what you need to know. Ignore the inches info all together, it will only confuse you. The next thing you'll need to know is the wind drift when you get further out. I don't know your wind value you entered (5 mph or 10 mph of wind), but the "Drift MOA" chart is how much your bullet will drift, with the wind value you have entered into your data from a 3 o'clock or 9 o'clock wind.
