1MOA is 1.047" per hundred yards. So 1MOA is 1.047" at 100, 2.094" at 200, 3.141" at 300....

In you example you need to come up ~21MOA at 800 yards, assuming your figures are in inches. 176/8.376=21.012....

800 (hundreds of yards)-176" 9total inches of drop) so
176/1.047 (moa)= 168.1 /8 (hundreds of yards)= 21 MOA of up

MOA= A unit of angular measurement equal to 1/60th of 1 degree, actualy equals 1.0473" per 100 yards of range (definition couresy of speer reloading manual)

I don't mean to thread jack, but being from Kentucky, I never needed anything zeroes in over 100 yds. If a deer stepped out that was over 100 yds you held a little high. Please verify that I am correct on my clicks (1/4'' at 100 yds)

100- 1 click=1/4'' elevation
200- 1 click=1/2'' elevation
300- 1 click=1'' elevation
400- 1 click=2'' elevation
500- 1 click=4'' elevation

I ave tried searching for this data, but I'm not real sure if I was entering the correct search criteria.

I fixed it for you. Just multiply the yardage in hundreds by the adjustment value.

500 yards = 5 X 1/4" = 1 1/4"
