If you scope is designed using moa then each full number on the turret would be 1 moa increment. You should have 4 small marks between each full number. They are 1/4 moa adjustments.
There is a good website where you can get information. And......you are there.;);)
There should only be three smaller marks! 1/4, 1/2, 3/4
Just to clarify, carry on!
This comes up so often we need a sticky or a tech article.
I think the hardest thing for newby's is that MOA is an angular term.
They want to give it a mesurement/size that they can relate to when in fact it "is" the mesurement, "Minute-Of-Angle"
MOA= 1.047 inches only at exactly 100 yards!!
MOA= 10.47 inches only at exactly 1000 yards.
MOA= .01047 inches at three feet or one yard!
It is a very small angle it is 1/60 of one deg.
