Re: Factory guns

Technically MOA=1.047"@ 100 yards.. Practically it is 1" @ 100 yards, 2" @ 200, 3" @ 300 etc., etc.. I may be wrong about the technical measurement but I'm pretty sure that's what it is.. d:^) JiNC

PaHunter

You might start another thread so your last question gets more attention, easier to search for later on as well. Ian could probably explain all about it much better than I, i'm surprised I was even able to explain it all to my cousin this week, but I had the advantage of visual aids to do it. Ian's good with words. You "do" need to have a thurough understanding of it to make this all easy, and it's a good question too.

Re: Factory guns

Hey, PaHunter...MOA is 1 inch basicly at 100 yds...Shoot 2 shots at the farthest range out to 300yds and let the rifle cool for a couple of minutes...repete this 2 more times...post on this board each of the 3 groups seperately and what game you plan to hunt and where...should be able to make a determination on rifles killing distance or futher info being required, scope power make etc...forget 3 and 5 shot groups now...

Re: Factory guns

At 100 yards I'll have two shots overlapping eachother with my 7mm wsm. I plan on hunting whitetails In Northern Pa in december (its usually between 0 and 20 degrees F)

Re: Factory guns

PaHunter...try 300 yards...overlaping means touching?...what is the distance in inches from center hole to center hole at 100yds the last time you shot? and how many shots did you take?
