I just want to convert my group size from inches to MOA.
Everything on the internet shoots 1/2 moa so just say that...or if it's a Creedmoor go with "in the .1's all day"...
1 moa is 1.047 inches and 100 yards.
A Minute of Angle (MOA) is an angular measurement.
A MOA is 1/60th of a degree.
1 MOA spreads about 1″ per 100 yards. (actually 1.047″)
1 MOA is a different size at different distances, 8″ at 800 yards is still just 1 MOA.
100 yds 200 yds 300 yds 400 yds 500 yds 600 yds 700 yds 800 yds
1″ .........2″......... 3″........ 4″........ 5″........ 6″........ 7″........ 8″
I know your trying to give the crash course but the .047 is pretty important.
At 500 it would be 5.235 which can almost be held or dialed for 5.25
(Your measurement in inches at a given yardage) divided by [(yardage divided by 100)*(1.047198)]
Hahaha! You couldn't let that one pass! I get your humor. I think you're funny no matter what everyone else says!
So wow a WHOLE half Inch at 1000 yards. .235 x 2 = .470
Can you dope the wind to less than 1/4 " at 500 yards
My MOA post came straight from NSSF...Take it up with them!
Well without getting into sniper school or anything or operational this and that, I’ve qualified with hundreds and thousands of service members at 500 meters with a 5.56 in all winds and weathers.
So no, in my opinion, it’s not that hard to dope anything at 500 yards when especially using a scope weapon vs iron sights or a RCO and a real rifle cartridge that wasn’t made for shooting bunnies.
Also I took it up with NSSF and they said it was ABOUT 1”
So, a .423 in group at 100 yards is how many MOA.
What number do I divide or multiply by to get this number.
What is the formula
Thank you Jebel.
That is what I thought just doublechecking
I believe it would be as follows:
0.423 (Group in Inches) / 1.047 (1-MOA) = 0.404 MOA group
or, Google is your friend. Just type in "inches to moa calculator...
You can also download a free app that'll allow you to take a picture of your group and measure the group for you in MOA.
