    O.K.

    I bought a savage model 12 VLP in 300 wsm last october, and put a nikon monarch 6-24x50 on top of it.

    The other day, I bought a leupold RX-IV rangefinder. Does anyone have one of these? I read another review on here about the TBR it has. The rangefinder TBR can display you aimpoint in MOA or holdover.

    My scope has 1/8 MOA adjustments. The rangefinder will tell you to aim for example .. UP 2 in MOA mode. Does this mean 2 whole turns of my elevation turret, or in my scopes case, 16 clicks ?

    Just wondering if anyone could help clear this up for me

    thanks,

    warren

    In your case 16 clicks.
