Let's say at 500 yards the come up is 9.75 and with a 1/4 MOA scope you dial that. With a 1/2 MOA scope you dial 9.5 or 10 so you are off 1/4MOA which at 500 yards is about 1 1/4 inch and at 800 its about 2 inches. Any of that gets you into a 10 inch kill zone deer or elk and would take a coyote out. Might have a little trouble taking out a rock chuck though.Thats the thing that worries me. That scope it the exact one im looking at. The 1/2" just seems like alot when you get out past 500yd or so.
Think about it, if each click is 1/4 inches you can adjust to within 1/8th inch of where you want to hit on the target. WIth a 1/2 inch click, you can get within 1/4 inches of where you need to be. Unless you and your gun is capable of 1/8th inch groups you don't need 1/4 inch/MOA clicks.Hey guys, I've been looking at the vortex hs long range scope. The thing that has me worried is the 1/2" moa. What do you guys think about 1/2" over 1/4". This will be on a 300 mag hunting rifle only. Thanks for any info!
