Maths question for someone with brains ?

Happy Easter all !

The question is this-

I have my rifle zeroed at 100 meters.

If I dial 20 moa up, how many inches should the group move up at 100 M ?

My brain is hurting trying to work this out !

Remember to convert the yards to meters.

Cheers

DUH

Check my math

1.047 / 100= .01047 That is how many MOA per yard
100 meters= 109.36133 yards
so there is .01047*109.36133=1.145 moa Per 100 meters

20 moa * 1.145= 22.9 inches

That is my guess! it seems close in my book but who knows.

Using the conversion numbers of 109.4 yards per 100 meters and 1.047"= 1MOA

I was in too much of a hurry to show it after I did it on paper -> but I lost the race anyway lol. Besides, History is my specialty not math (got sick of the theroms, postulets, and other things ;) )
