Re: I dont get it?!

To all you mathematicions out there, i used to own a 37 power target scope manufactured by Pecar of Berlin. this scope moved the crosshairs 7mm at 100m for each click of the turret.Would this be similar to 1/4" at 100yds. We know that 1" at 100yds is approx. 1 moa,would 28mm at 100m be a true moa? [img]images/icons/confused.gif[/img]

7mm at 100m is

7mm/25.4 inches at 100x39.4/36 yards

0.275" at 119.44...yards

or x/.275 = 100/119.4

or 0.2302" at 100 yards.

or a tad under .25" or 1/4" at 100 yards, but perhaps close enough for gov't work. [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

One of the USO MOA reticles. This one on my 3.2-17x44/58-30 ERGO EREK

DMCI:Nice one, thanks for that, but let me draw your attention to the fact that 100m is 109.4yds not 119.4.Using your formula this works out as .251" at 100yds. I think we can both agree that:

7mm at 100m and 1/4" at 100yds are both the same.

Good hunting.

Re: I dont get it?!

I think is awash either way. How is the us optice scope to look through? Are the marks to big as compared to the average mil reticle? It looked a little busy to me when I checked out the website. I have not had the oportunity to actually fondle a us optics scope.
