Re: NP-R2 MOA & holdover?
You're on the right track "now", no worries.
You're right, the 2 MOA does not change with distance, it's value in inches is what is changing.
Two lines diverging at 2 MOA will be 10 times further apart at 1000 yards than they were at 100 yards. It so happens that 1 MOA is approximately 1" at 100 yards so it would be worth 10 times that at 1000 yards, or 10".
1 MOA at 100 yards is worth 1.0472" to be exact, so 11 MOA at 500 yards would be multiplied by 5, then multiplied by 1.047 to determine the inches that 11 MOA is actually compensating for.
If you know the range, and the inches of drop predicted, simply divide to arrive at the MOA needed.
You are on the right track. [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]
