Re: Do 1/8 moa clicks really = less adjustment?
Let me try to make it simple. In the old days, some scopes had 1" adjustments. That means that at 100 yards (always use 100 as a basis) each click moved the elevation or windage point of impact 1". So, in about 30 clicks the POI would move 30".
Newer scopes have 1/8 and 1/4th inch clicks. Take a scope with 1/8th inch adjustments, it takes 8 clicks to equal 1" movement. To adjust it the same 30" would require 240 clicks, and there ain't that many on a scope. For a 1/4th" adjustment, cut the clicks in half. For that reason, you can obtain more adjustment without running out of clicks on a higher movement click turret.
All MOA scopes now have a large hash mark for the minute. The smaller hash marks between these will tell you how many clicks will move POI at 100 yards.
