1 moa at 1000 yards


Well, having been down this road, what you need is a scope with plenty of internal elevation. In my experience, mechanical devices have a sweet spot and may not be so good on the outer fringes of adjustment, YMMV. The is good out to about but after that it goes sub-sonic and array. Good luck. Jim White. New Posts. Members Profile. Post Reply. Can someone help, I see many links requiring me to fill in detailed load info on MOA needed for yards. More info on your setup would be good. Depends on how good your mounting is. If you get everything perfect, you should be OK, but you don't have much margin for error. Opinion,untempered by fact,is ignorance. There are some who do not fear death This should give me 25 MOA up and 25 down. I plan to shoot gr hpbt. If your mount and internal adjustment is "perfect", you actually have 26 up and down after mounting, with the 20 MOA base, you should have a little margin. Maybe 7 or 8 MOA. That assumes you are pushing your gr hpbt at fairly standard velocity around fpsMV. It is less than I would like, but livable. A MOA base with a yd zero would be better for long range. With a yd zero you would only be about 2in high at More info. Things like typical humidity, Altitude, Velocity. I say this because the closer you get to bottom, the less you will have adjustment for windage. Also bare in mind that depending on how well your scope zeroed windage wise, you may not even have the clicks you expect to be there. If it is very close to being dead nuts than you will have most of your available come ups. If not, then you will not have them. The Monarch X is a great scope, it isn't what I call long range friendly. The limited adjustment range makes the work for accomplishing long range shooting a bit more encompassing. With Freedom comes great responsibility, you cannot have one without the other An armed public are citizens. A disarmed public are subjects. I only have a yd range at my club, but I may go to the yd range on the other side of town once or twice a year. Thanks everyone, looks like I will just shoot it until it lets me down and I am forced to move in a new direction. Why set up a 1,yard gun that will only see 1, yards twice a year at most? Have you ever shot at 1, yards? I'd say keep the 20MOA base, figure out the yard shot, then use the reticle to adjust for the rest. If your mounting isn't perfect and your internals aren't dead-on; with a 25 or 30MOA base, you will run out of adjustment room on the horizontal axis, which will severely limit your adjustment on the vertical. Also, scopes in the mid-price range don't do particularly well at the extremes of their adjustment range at least that has been my experience. It isn't what you'll want to hear, but I'd recommend a scope made more for long-range target shooting.

Converting Moa To Inches ??

Even if you have a 1, yard indoor range with no air movement at all - you still won't get that 10" 1MOA group. You will never, ever, see 10 bullets exit a rifle at the exact same speed. Bullets that are coming out faster will usually be a bit high. Bullets that come out slower, will be a bit low. A 'typical' spread is 60fps with some factory ammo hitting fps. This means out of a gr Win match load traveling at fps average - you can have some bulelts moving at and some at near At yards - a fps spread is nothing for the When you look at the ballistic chart - that missing fps really starts to be felt around yards - the bullet is taking longer to get to the target as the one that was fps faster. Gravity has more time to work on it, the wind has more time to push it. This fps is going to create an error, when compaired to the faster bullet - that is exponitionally worse come yards. I have a match load. It chronographs within 13fps of 10 rounds average. But this still does not fix the problem. Because we then have concintricity issues - this is where the match bullet is not perfectly straight. Talk to any match long distance shooter - you get an X, a 9, a 10, and X - and then out of nowhere a 7! For years shooters rolled the bullets on a flat table surface to pick out the best. I have pulled Federal Gold Medal Match from a box that were. Notice these are all ammunition issues? That is because in long distance shooting the ammunition is more critical than the gun. And if you just simply gab a box of ammo and call it good Or like grabbing a cheapo bottle of wine at the and expecting it will impress your new girlfriend who is a French Chef. Bullets definitely have a range in which they are most accurate.

MOA for Dummies

Tom Mchale gets new Ruger Precision Rifle which means it is time for a short class on how to zero a scope and new rifle for long range shooting. USA — - Ammoland. There are lots of ways on how to zero a scope and rifle; this is just the method I prefer. The vertical crosshair must be perfectly aligned with the vertical centerline of your firearm. However, at longer ranges, a slight misalignment will cause a lateral miss. Or you can use a tool like the Scope Setter. Using three shot groups allows you to find a decent average impact point given the mechanical variability in your scope, rifle, and ammunition combination. It also helps factor out shooter error. If three shots land in the same area, you can be fairly confident that both you and your equipment agree. Fire a shot. Look at the target. Spin the turrets one way. Fire again. Spin them the other way. Fortunately, all of that trial and error is completely avoidable because scope turrets give you all the information you need to make an accurate adjustment on the first try. It works the other way too. Make sense? After mounting a new scope, you really have no idea where the first shot will go. Rather than putting a target far down range and hoping for the best, move your first target up close to 25 yards. I fired my first shot at the target from 25 yards to get on paper and the bullet was dead center laterally but almost exactly four inches above the bullseye. Easy math! Those impacts were right on the bullseye and went into the same hole.

I have recently purchased the NF ballistic softwear and am familiarising myself with it. My current rifle will soon be replaced with a defensive edge and NF NXS scope, but till then I want to use the pocket pc for referencing bullet drop in inches for my weatherby mag. Can someone get clear in my mind the conversion calculation to convert the moa adjustment to inches?? I know this question will be basic to some but I don't want to stuff this one up!! Thanks all!!

What is MOA? Understanding and using Minute of Angle

Great question! The first thing to understand about Minute of Angle MOA is that it is an angular and not a linear measurement. It means that a Minute of Angle is just like any other angular measurement… it can only refer the the angle between two things and NOT a length. Imagine holding two laser-pointers in your hand and pointing them at a target yards away. If the laser-pointers were spread apart at a 45 degree angle, the dots would be very far apart at yards. Go back to those laser pointers in our previous example. This means that an MOA can never be a liner answer e. However, I see no need to be that precise and instead round down and use about 1 inch at yards. I argue that the 0. For one, the 0. Second, most shooters me included can not see a 0. For example, most shooters will try to shoot with an approximate elevation adjustment needed for their rifle and bullet. Why does this not matter or will it be unlikely to matter? Instead, you might find that you should adjust 45 MOA to hit at yards for your particular caliber. In our video, we delve into how to use MOA. In this article, we start that topic below the video. The math for calculating MOA is very easy. In fact, it is so easy, that some rifle shooters get wrapped around the axle and get the wrong answer by trying to make MOA difficult. Therefore, you would need to adjust up 2 MOA at that distance. For example, with this method, you should be able to easily see that 1. This topic, and many more long range shooting topics, are covered in the best-selling Long Range Shooting Handbook. First, by always talking about and referring to MOA, you will understand how to use it better. Note, if you want to use 1. It is 1 MOA. It is 1.
