Can you just use 1.091 IPHY?
IPHY instead of MOA?

No, the layout for the input is:

One click is _____ MOA or Mil

And it has 2 of these inputs, one
for your elevation turret and the other
for windage.

Ok
I should have suggested just what you have: .2727 IPHY -per click

Even the most basic ballistic software allows IPHY, as this is pretty much what it all boils down to(in the USA). This isn't needed with true MOA scopes, but there are relatively few out there.
What are you using for software?

I could be wrong, but I'm pretty sure the only options are
MOA or Mil.

I'm using Bullet Flight Military version.

I emailed Knight Armament yesterday so mabye they
will know what's wrong.

Re: Adjusting Ballistic Program For True Sightron Scope Click Value

I tried to find some kind of manual for Bulletflight but nada! Some programs have you change the value but then you select the output somewhere else to use a custom value. I would post another thread specifically looking for how to adjust the output in BF.
I've test some SIII's on a test rig for scopes and their values have been so close to true MOA it's not funny, if I remember the last one was 1.050 of movement at 100 yards instead of 1.047.

No the 'bullet impact relative to LOS' in MOA is just that(actual MOA), which is calculated as 60.1. Your click value has nothing to do with this.
What should have changed was his CLICKS accounting for 60.1moa.

In other words, if he were not adjusting, but holding over, the solution is 60.1, and not 57.8 regardless of how his scope adjusts.

Your absolutely right Mike. It was late that night, and I guess I wasn't thinking straight. Thanks for correcting that for me. Garrett
