20moa vs. 15 moa

im new to the long range shooting and was trying to determine how much difference there would be at 1000 yds with a 15 moa versus a 20 moa. im not to good at math, so figuting it out on my own is kinda out of the question. thanks, jason

Re: 20moa vs. 15 moa

I've changed my answer twice now and now you have me confused.

I'm sticking with 52.35"

Re: 20moa vs. 15 moa

1 moa is technically 1.047" @ 100 yards

so 1 moa at 1000= 10.470"

10.470 x 5 moa = 52.350"

MagMan is absolutely correct.

At 100 or 1000?

You laugh but I changed mine from 52.35" to 10.47" and back after I reread his question about 3 times.

Doesnt matter what range! 20MOA minus 15MOA = 5MOA!

Re: 20moa vs. 15 moa

In all seriousness, 5MOA at 1K = as posted already. 52.35" at 1K.

Like you said, it depends on how you interperet the question.
