tall target test 100 yards

I did this test with my 6cm the other day two very tight groups .nightforce 5-22 nxs was used I had 32.25 inches from group to group. I used my rangrfinder for the 100 yard measurement. I think my moa adjustments are more like .26 trying to figure this out. Cant remember simple math formula.? Can anyone help me. Oh yea I dialed 30 moa between groups.

1 MOA = 1.047 IPHY. 30 MOA = 31.41 inches at 100 yds. Your turret reads 2.7% high.

Re: tall target test 100 yards

Does anyone know if this can be done in the kestrel with applied ballistics ? And where I used my rangefinder . If iam off 1 yard from 100 will that make that big of difference.

1 yd out of 100 would be 1% off. Your rangefinder would have to be 2.7 yds off to cause the error you measured. That seems unlikely.

Re: tall target test 100 yards

I've tested several NXS scopes and never found them to be actual MOA. I've preset 1.09 IPHY for NF scopes in my ballistic software.
So far the only scopes I know through testing, that are actually MOA, are Leupold Mk4 scopes. Dead on 1.0472 IPHY(seriously)

See if you can set IPHY per click

Re: tall target test 100 yards

I cant find anywhere I can change this on the applied ballistics on kestrel if anyone knows I would like a heads up .mabey I dont need to change it where it has the feature where you shoot at range and put the actual drop in the program what do you guys think.
