BINGO! But with all the angles you can in no way tell what 1 moa is from a miss that lands on an angled surface from a bullet coming in at a huge angle. We want to think the bullet is arriving from a line to us. But we know it is coming in from above. Especially a 6.5 at these distances.
If at all possible I would look for a rock wall to shoot at. Or at least a very large rock with a vertical face. Pic an aim point on the face like a crack, moss, white spot etc. Then you can use your moa reticle to measure the error between aim point and impact. Not nearly as good as paper or steel, but better than a target on an angle.
