    I've been looking hard at the Leupold 6.5x20x56 VX-L which should be avalible in a couple weeks.I know for finding moa for 1/4 adjusters: is bullet drop in inches, divided by yardage, multiplied by 95.49,which gives you minutes of angle,to figure out how many clicks up(4 clicks per minute).What would the multiplier be for 1/8?(could double the clicks for 1/4)What is the multiplier for 1/10 of an inch adjustment?More than likely I'd have them modified anyway.Thanks,Gary

    So your multiplier is 95.49 which comes from (100/1.04720). This number is always the same, it does not change. Once you know the number of MOAs if your scope is calibrated 4 clicks to one MOA then you multiply the answer by 4, if your scope is calibrated 8 clicks per MOA then you multiply the answer by 8 and if your scope is calibrated in 10 clicks per MOA then you multiply by 10 to know the total numbere of clicks to adjust.

    Example:
    Distance = 536 yards
    Impact = 12.5" low

    (12.5/536) X 95.49 = 2.23 MOAs.

    if 1/4 MOA then 2.23 x 4 = 8.92 clicks, use 9 clicks.
    if 1/8 then 2.23 x 8 = 17.84 clicks, use 18 clicks.
    if 1/10 then 2.23 x 10 = 22.3 clicks, use 22 clicks.

    Note: My scope has 4 clicks to 1 MOA. Since it has the MOAs calibrations lines on the turret, I just move it 2 MOAS and one click since .23 is close enough to 0.25 which would make for 1 click.

    I hope this helps.
