You would dial 5 Inches and 2 clicks instead of 5 MOA and 2 clicks for a scope with .25 MOA or IPHY clicks. There's no voodoo to it. In MOA your unit per 100 yards is 1.047" and your unit for IPHY is 1". That .047" difference only starts to matter as you get out there.

Don't sweat it! What's far more relevant is checking exactly what your scope actually shifts in, right throughout the adjustment range you'll be working in, not just by going by what the manual states. A hell of a lot of scopes don't move what they say they do, consistently right across the range. Nightforce generally do, and leupy Mk4's are pretty good, but I check 'em all on a test grid at precisely 100 yards. Any good ballistic program allows you to input your exact adjustment value as well.
As for counting clicks...that's a recipe for a balls up if ever there was one!

A half inch per MOA. If your drop is 20 MOA @ 1000 yds, that's 10" dif... Just so there's no misunderstanding.

You're quite right Montana, that was misleading. I've edited my post. 1/2 inch per MOA is correct - read twice, post once!

I forgot to mention that IMO it's easier to communicate with your partner or spotter w/o confusion in MOA rather than IPHY.
