Re: Levels of difficulty for increasing ranges
Hi Dave...
Your figures:
200 yards = 4 times the difficulty
300 yards = 9 times more difficult
400 yards = 16 times more difficult
500 yards = 25 times
600 yards = 36 times
700 yards = 49 times
800 yards = 64 times
900 yards = 81 times
1000 yards = 100 times more difficult
... are dead on.
Some might have a hard time seeing it, but if you think of a square piece of paper that is 10" on each side, it represents a target that is 100 square inches... but also 100 (rounding the 1.047") square "MOA's". That target at 200yds is only 25 square MOA's, at 500yds = 4 SQ/MOA's, and at 1000yds = 1 SQ/MOA!... so it is 100 times as hard to hit at 1000yds.
