Long Range Rookie needs Scope Reading help
I've been shooting my whole life, but it's always been close to where I would just set my scopes for 100 yards and I would be fine.
Now I'm getting into much longer range shooting where I have to adjust the clicks on my scopes for different distances and I'm really enjoying it, but as a rookie trying to interpret the numbers on my scopes dials is new to me. Is there a good article for a guy like me to look at and read? I'm familiar with calipers and other measuring instruments, but I have never had to measure anything in MOA and I'm not sure how I'm supposed to read that.
So far I just keep adjusting the elevation until I hit what I'm shooting at farther out then make a pencil mark for the range on my adjustment knob.
I appreciate any help! Thanks.
