Re: Converting yards into clicks ????
A mil is 3.6 inches at 100 yards, 7.2 inches at 200 yards. Your scope is 1/4 inch (iphy) at 200
yards, so 7.2 divided by .25 is 29 clicks. Now if your scope is 1/8 moa it will be slightly
different. A mil is 3.438 moa at 100 yards. 7.2 / 1.047 inches (1 moa @ 100) = 6.87679
x 4 = 27.5 clicks , take your pic, 27 or 28.
Now, instead of using a mildot, use a moa or iphy reticle to match your turrets (clicks)
or get a scope that has .1 mil turrets and a mil reticle. You will save a lot of converting.
Or get a pda or itouch and put an app like "shooter" in it, it will tell you all three at
the same time. And for ten bucks, cheaper than a half a box of shells.
A mildot master may also have the conversions to moa, I don't know, you would have to
But first you are going to have to know what your scope clicks are in the real world.
Put a Yard stick straight up and down at exactly one hundred yards from the end of
the scope, no fudging. Mount the gun (or scope) in a gun vise and start clicking your
turrets and counting. Find out how many clicks it takes to move up the yard stick and
record your measurements. Scopes are commonly off. Yours may move 1.1 inches in
8 clicks or .95 inches, but you need to know. Then your are ready to dial in true amount for your rig. Otherwise you are going to spend some ammo correcting what
you could correct on paper.
