Dope of a Scope

dōp                     skōp

"A sniper will enter information into a data, or DOPE (Data On Personal Equipment) book, such as lot number, temperature, wind speed/direction, humidity and altitude. If the same conditions are encountered again, the data is available to assist in making an accurate shot."

After you zero the scope... doping is simply calculating the number of clicks from your zero, to account for bullet drop and drift at various ranges, for a specific ammunition load.

A DOPE has to be calculated for each ammo load that has different bullet weights and velocity.
