Clicks or moa ??

I use to count clicks and now I have an hand held that will give me clicks or moa adj. I was wandering what yall use and why , when my hand held says for example come up 30 3/4 moa or 30 1/4 moa and my leupold if I remember correctly 1 full rotation will be 15 moa adj. How do I figure mathematically the difference of 3/4 ,1/4 what's the fastest way in doing this? Thanks for any advice jeremy

Re: Clicks or moa ??

Your scope is probably marked off in 1/4 moa increments so, 1/4 moa is 1 click past a full increment mark and 3/4 moa is 3 clicks past a full increment mark.

If you have to go up 30 3/4 moa just go up 30 moa, which in the case of 15 moa per full turn, would be 2 full turns from zero and then go 3 clicks more and you should be there.

For me it's way quicker to dial in moa increments, and full turns, than it is to count clicks. Don't even remember when the last time was that I counted clicks. I just like to do it quick and easy so I can get on with the shot and have fun.

Thanks for the reply, sounds easy now that you've explained it sometimes this stuff seems harder than it really is

1" of scope adjustment at 100 yards is 1". At 1000 yards it's 10"

1moa of scope adjustment is 1.047" at 100 yards. At 1000 yards, 1moa is 10.47".

okay ss7mm so when someone says their gun is a 10 MOA gun @ 1000 yrds then that gun shoots inside 10" if the shooter does his part correct.
