***Both Photos reflect my weight of 171 lbs at a height of 5'11***

I am trying to hit 180 lbs at maybe 12% bodyfat, I would assume at such a level I would have a faint outline of top 4 abs. I understand how to calculate macros for getting to 180 lbs, but how do you go about calculating macros for a bf percentage at a specific weight? Or is that simply not possible, eat for 180 and see what my composition looks like when I arrive?
You need to start where you are with calories and pull back 300. Watch that after the first 2 weeks. Not during the first 2 weeks. That doesn't count.

After the first two weeks you want to be losing about 1.5 per week. If that is not occurring, pull back your cals by 200 more a day and give it 2-3 weeks.
