Re: Measuring group size.

Grenhorn,

Simply divide your group size by the range in hundreds of yards to get the MOA measurement.

Ex: 500yd group is 7.5". Divide the 7.5" by 5 (hundreds of yards) and you get 1.5 MOA @ 500yds.

Re: Measuring group size.

Ok, that makes sence. Funny with all the reading I have been doing you think I would have stumbled across that by now.

If I posted that I measured a 1.5 MOA at 500 yds, I wonder how many would think I grouped my shots within 1.5 inches? Probablly get chased off the board [img]images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

thank you
