The numbers are just reference numbers, the scope should say if the clicks are 1/8, 1/4, or 1/2MOA. The Idea is you zero the scope at say 100yds. then loosen the set screw, align the 0 with the mark on the scope and tighten the set screw.
Now sight in at 200yds and see what number the turret is on at this distance, wright it down somewhere. then go to 300 and so on.
The Idea is to know that 0 is 100yds and all the numbers that correspond to different distances.
Most scopes with target turrets also have horizontal hash marks on the turrets that correspond to one complete turn. For example if 100yds=0 on the first hash mark, 400yds might equal 0 on the 4th hash mark. etc.
Hopefully this makes sense to you.
