firstly, I mark the wheel... ie make sure the ranges correspond to the marks made repeatedly... and i'll leave it for a bit and check again before doing any clicks.

Then for clicks I tend to just shoot until i have a tight group, or a group that on average is on the level for the range... i completely forget about windage... don't care if it takes 3mm or 3", as long as the shots make a nice line, that's good enough.

then i take it around a course immediately... helps with the confidence, and if there's any issues, you can check them out.

finally, i might plot a graph to see if the clicks make a nice shape... i generally check that the marks on the wheel decrease as they go further out in range.

i tend to mark the wheel when looking at paper targets, or very fine detail like news print...
