As a rule of thumb, below 15 yards do nothing & below 15 degrees do nothing, above use the measured distance and clicks but aim a bit lower. You can calculate with Chairgun, exactly how much, depending on distance, inclination angle, pellet type, energy etc.
Pete follow this advise and you will not go far wrong, so being very basic range find your target dial in the distance and aim low INSIDE the kill the pellet will only go higher at worst than your actual aim point which will still be well with in the kill zone(if it lands on the cross hair still an hit no extra points for hitting dead centre in FT)
