    I measure my 100 yd. groups by measuring the outside edges of the group,then subtracting the bullet caliber method.Do I use the same method for 200,300,400,etc.?I have been told that at 200 a 1.00" group would be the equivelent to .500" at 100 yds.Please enlighten me on the correct process! Thank you,
    Jimmy

    Thanks,Abinok!
    Then a 3" group at 400=1/2 @ 100?
    In other words:.5 @ 100
    1.00@ 200
    2.00@ 300
    3.00@400
    6.00@500
    Double the size per 100 yds.?

    it goes more like this:
    1 inch @ 100 yds = 1 moa
    2 inches @ 200 yds = 1 moa
    3 inches @ 300 yds = 1 moa
    and so on

    so if you shoot 1 inch at 4ooyds you are shooting .25moa, or the equivalent of .25 inch at 100 yards
