Gnats... You're right, who needs to worry about 0.047" difference at 100 yards?
though the average size of a gnat is about 0.039".
1 MOA = 1.047" at 100 yards and 10.47" at 1000 yards
1 IPHY = 1.000" at 100 yards and 10.00 at 1000 yards
Up to now, we would still be thinking about the gnats deal... but know instead of
just making a comparison let's get a real world example.
Let's say your rifle scope is calibrated in inches, 4 clicks = 1" at 100 yards.
now from a ballistic table you know your turret needs to go up 23.2 MOA; take
the shot and the big awesome buck just walks away into the timber.
What happened? For each 4 clicks you lost 0.049", so... (0.049 X 23.2)=1.137"
which at 1000 yards would make a difference of 11.37"
allowing you to
miss the buck.
You needed to come up 24.3 IPHY on your turret instead you came up 23.2 IPHY
thinking that a gnat makes no difference and you actually missed by 292 gnats!
