Well, I was going by the fact that for all practical purposes 1 moa at 100 yards is 1". If I shoot a .2 group it would be .200" and since it is under .25 it is under 1/4".

I have referred to many groups at 1000 being .5 moa which is just under 5". Are we not talking about the same thing here?

If I posted something wrong I apologize. But my excuse is, I am a long range hunter, not a bench rest shooter , and this is LRH forum.

Jeff

I feel most long range hunters give their groups in MOA and usually in 1/4 MOA increments. I just usually hear about guns shooting in the 1's or 2's with the bench rest crowd.

By the way, I don't think anyone in their right mind would argue the fact that you're an excellent long range hunter!

I don't think there is any issue with that.

Thanks for the kind words.

So my thick skull is blocking something here. Isn't a .2 group saying it is 2 tenths of an inch and also 2 tenths of an moa? I must be missing something or confused.

For all intents and purposes yes, but they still refer to their groups in inches not MOA at least from what I've read. Either way I think the OP now understands
