No, lets say the rock is at 1400 yards away. 1 moa at 1400 is 14"( roughly) 2 moa is 28" (roughly)

So the rock is roughly 1 1/2 x 2 moa or 21" x 28"

If the group is 1 moa it would be 14"

Thanks for breaking it down for me I should have known what you were saying.

Was you shooting your .338 weatherby that you use to have or was that with your 300 Win mag that you have been hunting with this year ? Either way great shooting ! The impacts look rather large in the photo so i thought maybe .338
