Not really how to calculate but to know how high to aim up is what im saying.
Ive gotten use to know how much I should aim up when im sniping but im not usually accurate, usually when I camp with a bipod on firestorm or something I usually just fire one shot to get a good idea how much the bullet would drop from where I am shooting but the enemy isnt always going to be that far away, they're either farther or closer...
Can someone tell me how I can accurately aim when sniping far distances? Im not so sure just need a little tip.

Pick one rifle and scope and stick with it. With practice, estimating the drop will become second nature and you'll be able to hit shots just by seeing how big the guy appears in your scope.

well it all comes down to how much time and practice you have put in. What rifle do you use.

If your stuck, you could try using the short-range finder on the SOFLAM but its only good up to the 100m or so range.
Best thing about recon is looking down the x8 scope of your rifle; knowing your gonna ruin that guys day from the comfort of your own sitting room with one button, any time you like.

after a while judging bullet drop will be second nature, been a few times where i notice an enemy and without thinking i zoom in and aim a little above the head, and get a head shot on the first try, personally i have found out that the more i think about it the harder it is for me to get a head shot

stick wht one scope so u gett use to it and i prefer the X8 scope nt the 12X it make a shine were it is easy to find and kill u as a sniper wich as a sniper u want to hide not be found and kill people. the best way to estimate bullet drop is to first play team death match because team deth is a close rang thing and after team d u play conquest or rush ect... but the main gole is to learn about ur scope. all parts of the scope is important not just the part were the two lines cross EVERYTHING. the best thing to learn about ur sniper rifels bullet drop is to see wht rifel u hve. each rifels bullet drope is different. like the M40a5 and the L96 the M4oa5 has way more bullet drop then the L96 if u read about the sniper rifel on the game were u click on the gun in the costumise classes part it tells u about the sniper rifel and if u practice wht it u will find it out urself. i love sniping i wanna join the marines and be a sniper but i wear glasses i dnt think they will let me because of tht. but my fav.. sniper saying (wich is true) BE THE RIFEL AND LET THE RIFEL BE U AND ULL SEE LOTS OF GUYS WTH NO HEADS. i hope u like this and if u want to add me on battlelog plz do so. oooooooo i forgot. THE BEST THINGS TO USE ON A RIFEL. the scope (X8 scope) and nothing else. never use the flash or the red laser sniping is to be not seen not get a light and say HEEEEYYY LOOK OVER HEAR IM A SNIPER. dnt use bipod it makes the aimindg harder for u to turn and go up and down. u can use the suppressor but i wouldnt recomend it. and THE BEST SNIPER RIFELS (in my opinion) the best sniper rifels to me is eather the SV98 M4OA5 L96 or the M98B. i would HIGLY RECOMMEND the L96 or the SV98 my favorite is the L96. and if u want to leaarn more add me ill tell u everything i know. and if u wanna follow me on my clan the leader is XxAIRSOFTCREWxX im in his clan and its awsome he is friendly and nt bossy and his youtube channel is called XxAIRSOFTCREWxX lol just like his name im in the clan and hopefully im in lots of his vids see u all later and (if u read all of this u are a REAL and TRUE SNIPER so get bck to BF3 and sniping like crazzzzzy!!!!!!!!!!!)
you're not RARE, you're not COMMON, you're IMPOSSIBLE to find, and you're the ONLY ONE of you're kind. Grow up! Be a MAN. you say you love her? So go show her.! Take that shy feeling and shove it away and MAN up! THAT's WHAT God SAID!

just play with ur fave rifle, fave scope. and let the power of the sniper take over ye :)
before u know it you'll get 600m+ running headshots without a thought of how far to lead or how high to aim.
thats how i used to roll before they killed sniping
ps. cant wait for the new patch, they are reducing the big white lumiscent potatoe they call a tracer. woop!

trying to hit someone, but can't guage the range? find the nearest large surace and shoot at it while holding rmb to watch where it hits.
adjust ur aim.
rinse and repeat.
Do or do not, there is no try.

Oh they are READY Supa...

READY LIKE A BOSS !

Can u handle us SuperBaws ? ?

Anyway back on topic..this guy here has done some excellent work on scopes and drops. He has some charts detailing the drop per Mil dot (or Line on the x12) and the range in Meters.

just to let u guys no tht if u think calculating bullet drop on this game is hard in real life u hve to calculate bullet drop wind speed how far ur guy is and everything but bck to bf3 learning about ur rifel is important and knowing its skill is also important if u hve a long rang rifel like the L96 u should play conques or rush. if u have a short rang rifel like the sv98 and m40a5 u should play team death or the upcoming mapack close quarters. people say tht sniping is all about skill. RONG!!!!!. sniping is all about you nt being see and killing people i no the title says how to calculate bullet drop but im going to get of the topic. sniping uses skill and timing andaiming and lots of other stuff. in bf3 u dont need to jus camp on a roof and then snipe ur fully exsposed go to the ground crawl near a bush or tree. the better u hide the better u snipe. and just to let u no do not quick scope!!(unless ur going to do it for fun like i do some times) just breath and TAKE UR TIME and shoot ull always hit him.just like a sniper quote i heard. BE THE RIFEL AND LET THE RIFEl BE U AND ULL SEE LOTS OF GUYs WTH NO HEADS. a very important thing is ur scope in bf3 use the X8 nt the 12X the 12X gives a little shine so people cn find u faster and easyer to snipe u. remember u dnt want to be found as a sniper. ok and hear is one of the thing people forget tht makes them die aall the time. hears a saying about wht im going to tell u KILL A FEW AND WALK AWAY. wht i mean is when u kill like 3-6 people walk away and find another hiding spot. if u kill many people they will no were u are and just come bck and kill u. it is hard to kill someone wth a gun tht has 100 bullets and all u have is a sniper rifel and a pistol. if u follow all these rules u should be fine in combat so if u like this comment on this and i wanna say thx to xLordDarrylx for his awsome funny and short comment. thx to all my fans L.........O...........L.......!.!.!.!.!

Man it took me awhile to get bullet drop down packed...but I just stuck with a certain rifle & learned it.
Some people can't sleep because they have insomnia. I can't sleep because I have Internet connection.
