Scope adjustment 25/50 yd.

About how many clicks does it take to go from 25 to 50yd.
with a U-dot? What about with Iron sights, do most adjust the same from
one brand to the next and what does a click with Irons equal?

You didn't specify which caliber or what kind of iron sights you are using. For a 1911, I usually add about 5 clicks with my UltraDot up from my 25 yard setting with .45 ACP reloads.

4 clicks up for 50 yards assuming a 1911 .45 with mild reloads. This is for an Ultradot - I use a slightly hotter load in my ball gun for 50 yards and don't move the sights.

My bad…. 1911- 5” 45acp 185/200gr ???fps. while trying to type
my thoughts I forgot most of the important stuff. As for the iron sights what I’m
asking is do most brands use the same one click equals X movement or do they
vary a lot?

I've only used Bo Mar, Kensight and Elliason. They all appear to be pretty much the same. What brand of sight are you using?

Bo-Mar style is what's on the gun at this time.

You can't do any better than a Bo Mar IMHO. IIRC the bullet should move about 1/2" at 50 yards with each click.
