Labels on the elevation knob, or
a range card with the numbers shown on the elevation turret?

each number on the turret represents one minute of angle or four clicks. so on my range card, lets say if i would have to use 18 clicks i show 4/2 on my range card. that means four minutes of angle + 2 clicks.

I have gone to a system of range card for my spring guns and turret label for my PCP's. The range card keeps me from having a knob that may eventually over time rattle off my spring gun scope, whereas the PCP can of course handle an oversized knob without a problem.

if you learn the turret, then it's easier to transpose the curve from rifle to rifle, regardless of scope height. I'm assuming that your speaking of marking an oversized elevation knob with distances vs MOA/MIL?

After a while, you'll recognize the commonality of the curve and where the rifle/scope combination is sitting on it. 12fpe is 12fpe, 20 fpe is 20 fpe, or your rifle somewhere in between. The factor is scope height.

I never considered putting the scope numbers on the side wheel. If I have room I may use both on the side wheel. And, putting it on the side wheel saves carrying (and misplacing) another piece of paper.
