Re: 1/8 moa adjustments

The 1 moa scopes dont truly = 1 inch. I shot more mil now, but it is 1.047?? So the more adjustment,the more error,plus you need to test scope for true adjustment in field.

    Thank you for your reply. Yes, you are right it is 1.046" @ 100 yards.


    What I need, is the extrapolation method correct.?

    I have a 3 shot 1.5" moa group at 100 yards at 12 O'Clock 2.5" high
    of center.

    I can add the .046 later.

    man, I wiggle more that that.

    No, In simple form a 1'' adjust=1''@100,that =2''at 200 and so on.If you adjust 2'' or 16 clicks in your case=4''at 200,6''at 300, and .....

    Fred 64

    No, I haven't done any trigger work. Yet everything I have
    seems to work well, where it's at. Except my 30 - 30 win pre
    64. I need to rework the safety button when lever is closed.
    My last three purchases have adjustable triggers.

    I hope to be at the range by 12: am tomorrow.

    I made some shims for the 223 scope base and now my zero
    setting is a hundred yards, seven and one half minutes down
    from the top. which leaves 40 min to the bottom. Only need
    twenty three .6 minutes for a 1000 yds

    well, I have no memory. i thought you were the one told me about trigger work.
    I get to talkin with folks and forget sometimes who I heard what from.
    sounds like you know what your doin.
    I put a bushnell elite 3200--10X mil dot on the new 06. its a mil/mil reticule. graduated in tenths. simpler for me than the others. I like the others too and have a check in my wallet for the one you have. numbers of any kind are a challenge for me. 1 2 3 7 5 8 9---see.
    went yote hunting with Hank this morning. found them on the second hide. but couldn't bring them in. am going to get a fox-pro.
    I have a good load for the new 06. a 180 gameking on top of 57.0 gr of H4831, fed bench rest primer and win case, and a lee factory crimp. might be my imagination but seems like the crimp is adding to the smaller group. 1/2 in for 5 at 100 yards. it chroneys' at an average of 2510fps. just a cheap new original design vanguard. ive never used H4831 before, but was all I could find. seems to work good with this rifle/round.
    see you at the range tomorrow. have a good evening.
