Re: MOA Maximum?
I have two MOA's. One is a 7BR and also has a 6BR barrel. This was my silhouette pistol with the 10 3/4" 7BR barrel. It shot both cast and jacketed bullets well. The 14" 6BR barrel was for groundhogs. If the target was 300 yds. or less the shot was automatic. Very seldom missed. The second is a .250 Savage. I used this pistol for prairie dogs and deer. It too was very accurate. Groups under 1/2" are common.
Quality wise they are hard to beat. My first was purchased in 1986 and the second in 1992. I have had very few problems with them. If you have a problem, Rich Mertz will give you immediate attention. Thinking back the only problem I had was the wrong firing pin was installed in the .250 I returned the gun to Rich and he fixed it and had it back to me quickly.
One of the things that I like about the MOA is the size. It is a lot smaller than an XP or Striker. The MOA is also lighter. Both of my triggers are around a pound. Go to the web site and look at the options that are now available. MOA has come a long way since I ordered my first gun at the eastern International Silhouette Shoot in Tennessee in 1986. A friend and I ordered pistols together. He went on the win a future International Big Bore Standing event with his MOA 7BR. He switched to the .22 barrel and proceeded to win the International Small Bore event.
