1 MOA is 1.0472 inches per 100 yards this is important to remember. Example let's say that we need 20 MOA of vertical correction at 1000 yards this means 20 X 1.0472 X 10 = 209.44 inches of corection. If your scope acctualy adjusts in IPHY (inches per hundred yards) then we have corrected for only 200 inches of verticule correction at 1000 yards a difference of 9.44 inches a very significant amount IMHO

No I did not say that. Nightforce does indeed adjust in true MOA. What is being said is that not all scopes do and it is impartant to know that.

Re: MOA

I have a Zeiss Conquest 6.5-20x50, does anyone know if this scope works in true MOA or IPHY? I read the book but don't remember it clearly defining the difference, but I do remember it referencing inches.
