Re: Moa at 300yd's question

group size *(yardage/100)

2.75/3 = .917 MOA

at 300 yards 1 MOA is 3.14". 2.75"/3.14"=.88 MOA. I would see how it does at say 400 or 500 yards before changing anything, nice shooting.

And I do stand corrected since 1 MOA = 1.047" at 100 yards.

.88 it is

Re: Moa at 300yd's question

It all depends on what your intentions are with it. That's plenty good enough to hunt with out a ways but won't break any records. It is good shooting and I agree I would see how far you can push it out there. Nice job!
