1 MOA = 0.01'00" = 0.0166667° ----- 100M(Tan(0.0166667°)) = 0.0290888M @100M.
So, 1 MOA = 29.088822 mm. 1 inch = 25.4 mm
Therefore 1 MOA = 1.145229" @ 100 METERS
20 MOA's equals 22.90 inches.
This way is more complicated but Willy's46 gave me no choice. He'd already done it the way I would have. Lot of fun!
Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.
Our Lord Jesus said that as it was in the days of Noah and
also as it was in the days of Lot so it shall be in the days...
It's happening again!!! God sent to us His prophet, and His Word
to this generation and we once more are rejecting it as was prophesied!!! ---> As promised, God Sent His Prophet to us!
You need to nail down the click value on your scope, while eliminating other variables (is it securely mounted now? Are you sure it's holding zero?) or you may be chasing your tail for a long time.
Try a yardstick test at 100. Put the stick vertically on the target. With the rifle very securely held, put your crosshairs on the very top of it and have somebody else crank the turret while you watch the reticle. Ensure it moves smoothly and that each click seems to move the same amount without getting hung up or jumping at all. See how many clicks it takes to get to the bottom of the stick. Do it a few times until you're sure of the answer.
That will tell you what your scope is doing without including possible errors created by shooter, rifle or mounts.
There is no problem now with the mounts. All rock solid.
Basically if the previous posts are accurate, for 20 moa dialed on my scope I should get 22.9" up instead of the 25 I accually get " ? That itself will cause grief.
The rifle simply tack holes groups like I have never seen, but I struggle for good first round elevation dope.
I gave the 700 M example because I routinely practice on a steel gong at that range, and I would like to know what elevation moa others get when they run the previous mentioned numbers through their PDA. I can then compare that to my adjusted drop chart. If they match I feel I have found the missing piece of the puzzle.
So basically I'd like to work out the moa diffence at 700m with the 2 " difference from the 20 moa dialed ? Did that make eany sense ? I think from memory you should get around 16.75 up. Would the difference in click adjustments result in a corrected dope of between 13-14 moa for the 700 M distance
Thanks for your time.
With each step in the bush, you are a step closer.
If your scope has shifted 25" when you say it should have shifted 22.9" (corrected for MOA to to inches per 100M) that means that your scope is moving 100.9% of what you want it to. Are all of your adjustments moving the bullet 1.09 times what they should be? If so, that means that your scope is not tracking what it is advertised for.
I used to re-load but now I "hand-load".
