    1MOA is 1.047" per hundred yards. So 1MOA is 1.047" at 100, 2.094" at 200, 3.141" at 300....

    In you example you need to come up ~21MOA at 800 yards, assuming your figures are in inches. 176/8.376=21.012....

    "Clicks" will depend on your scopes adjustments.

    800 (hundreds of yards)-176" 9total inches of drop) so
    176/1.047 (moa)= 168.1 /8 (hundreds of yards)= 21 MOA of up

    MOA= A unit of angular measurement equal to 1/60th of 1 degree, actualy equals 1.0473" per 100 yards of range (definition couresy of speer reloading manual)

    -7 2 8
    -21 5 20
    -43 8 32
    -75 12 48
    -118.5 16 64
