As I understand it in a 90 degree shot up or down, the effect of gravity makes no difference to trajectory.
Therefore (ignoring wind effects) a shot at 8 yards or 55 yards would have to be taken compensating for scope centre hight only. This will never happen in the real world of course but it gives you a different perspective rather than trying to work it out from a horizontal point of view.
