Re: Please help me understand MOA
nope, not correct
41.6" at 500 yards is not 41.6 moa it is inches of drop, to convert it to MOA range in hundreds of yards is part of the equasion
41.6 divided by MOA 1.0473"=39.7 now divide this by range in hundreds of yards
39.7 divided by 5= 7.94 MOA so 29 clicks of your scope should do it.
1 moa is 1.0473" at 100 yards
1 moa is 1.0473" per 100 yards of range so moa at 500 would be
1.0473 (MOA)x5 (range in hundreds of yards)=5.2365" 1MOA at 500 yards
each 1/4 MOA click of the scope moves bullet impact .261 at 100 yards at 500 yards each click is
.261 (moa)x5 (range in hundreds of yards) = 1.305" per 1/4 moa click
So moa at 822 yards is
1.0473 (moa) X 8.22 (range in hundreds of yards)= 8.608" moa at 822 yards each 1/4 moa click would move POI 2.152" at 822 yards
what the scope adjustments do is each MOA changes the angle of your muzzle by about .0069", your crosshairs actualy move down when you dial up, forcing you to raise the muzzle to the correct POA, since your changing the angle of you muzzle it changes the flight of the bullet more the farther the distance.
MOA= minute of angle, a unit of angular measurement equal to 1/60th of 1°, actualy equals 1.0473" per 100 yards of range,
so MOA is actualy 2.0496" at 200
3.142" at 300
4.19" at 400
5.24 at 500
10.473" at 1000 yards
Hope this helps
