MOA help!

Hello, I am fairly new to long range hunting but I have a couple of questions. Ok I have a millett trs-1 4-16x50 with 1/4 MOA target knobs. I am shooting Remington core lokt 150 grain bullets and I just need to know how many "clicks" or moa I need to Adjust to make shots for 100 yards to 700 yards.

Thanks, Josh

Josh, to be able to give you an idea, you need to give more information.

What are you shooting them in? 270, 30-06, 300 Winch Mag, 300 RUM...
What's the scope height? Distance from center of scope to center of barrel vertically?
Do you happen to know the bullet BC? Have you Chronographed it.
What's barrel length? just in case you don't know the MV.

Just give some of those answers.

Re: MOA help!

Oh man, I thought i put the cartride in there but guess not. Its a mossberg .270 with a 22 inch barrel and the sight height, I'm not very sure about that one. The scope has a 30mm tube and a 50mm lens and it is mounted on high rings. There is barely any room to fit scope caps on the front without having to touch the barrel so I'm not sure if that will help you any...

Thanks, Josh

Josh, think of an imaginary straight line that goes clear through the center of your barrel's bore. This would be the bore-line.

Also think of an imaginary line the goes clear through your rifle-scope. Dead center of the scope.

Now using a measuring tape, or dial calipers (keeping away from scratching your scope's ocular lens) just measure the best you can the distance between these two
lines. 90 degrees to both lines, in other words the closest distance is what you want.

You could partially take the bolt out and measure from the center of the bolt the the center of the rifle scope. (Close enough) That'd be your scope height.

That's why we're getting the info. for.

Tell me about what elevation you're going to be shooting at and I'll
try to make a drop chart that would only give you an idea of what's
going on. Reason is we would be guessing the muzzle velocity or just
taking the factory's given velocity, factory given BC... it'd be very hard
to get something very accurate; but after some shooting and testing we
should be able to use that information to get closer to a better drop chart.

The Elevation about you'll be hunting would take a different chart if there is
a great difference. But that comes later.

Well, I hunt mainly in two places. A huge open place in wickes, Arkansas with the elevation of approx. 1,030*ft (314*m) and then a place in Texas with the elevation of 591*ft (180*m)
