    Use the MOA column. Your scope should be 1/4 moa per click. If the chart says
    you need 5 moa, just go to the number 5 on the turret. Make sure you turn it
    in the right direction. Don't want to shoot your feet!

    yay thanks mate i blew a turkey away at 300 so i must of got it close
    so round numbers are the easy bit what about when i get a number like 2.6 that would be 14 clicks but the next number is 3 which is only 12 clicks thats seems a bit odd 2 me ? is there a possiabilty that my charts are out?


    thanks 4 the help!!!!!!!!!!

    How many clicks in an MOA is your scope? 2.6 MOA would be 10 clicks in a 1/4 MOA click scope, not 14. 10 clicks is 2.5 you can't actually get to 2.6 exactly unless you have a 1/10th MOA click scope.
    So You dial to the number 2, the two more clicks for the .5 MOA.

    I hope that made sense.
