Re: how do i calculate m.o.a and clicks for this?

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)
