Re: 6.5/.284 bullet drop

Yep you are right, I mutiplyied 33.5 by 1.047 instead of dividing it by the moa at 500 yards. My mistake did it on an excel sheet and must have missed something. The 35 is an actual measurement in MOA but not one MOA at 500 yards which would be 5.235 and 6.5 or so moa. I aint gonna go back through all the math so thats an estimate but Jbs is closer. Yeah I was thinking that the scope would be a 1/4 moa. So be it.
