    Okay I'm sure folks have asked this question over and over but it would be very helpful if someone could help me out or direct me to a thread that has this info.

    Just a question or two would help .

    1. I shot at 600 yards and say for an example I am 8 Inches low how and what would the Moa equal . Can you show me the math ?

    2. At say 800 yards I am 3 1/2 Inches high what would that be in MOA and how would you get it (math) can you show me ?

    I dont mind to read some literature but if you want to teach me heres your chance :)

    Thanks in Advance

    I am 99% sure this is how.

    1.0472 x 6 = 6.2832
    8" divided by 6.2832 = 1.2732365 or just 1.2732 MOA

    1.0472 x 8 = 8.3776
    3.5" divided by 8.3776 = .4177807 or just .4177 MOA
