Are you ready?

There are lots of "discussions" in the local interwebs regarding Precision Shooting, and for fun I thought that I would post this for review and discussion.

#2 must be a trick question, as all the choices are wrong. ;)

I do not comprehend "new math"............. :idunno:

It seems to me that at 50 yards, how far will a 10 MOA adjustment move the impact of the bullet in inches?

5 inches.

If 1 MOA at 100 yards is 1", then at half the distance, 1 MOA is half as big and is 1/2". Likewise, 1 MOA at 25 yards is 1/4". So, if you think in 1/2" increments, and add up 10 of those 1/2" increments, you come up with 5 inches.

I agree with Rip. I lost interest when I couldn't find 6.54" as a choice for #2. I know that means I didn't pass the test, but is it ok if I still shoot some 600 on weekends when there aren't any long range matches going on?

Anyways, the whole thing is about KD shooting. I could've sworn someone told me once that KD shooting "doesn't matter". ;)

I can't take this test. I shoot at 1000 and fractions always screwed with my mind :o

It also helps if the "right" answers are an option... :rotf:

As stated "reality inducing questions".............
reality is - this is causing some discussion, this was posted to have some fun......
and nobody is perfect all the time - KD or not .......... :P

*********************************************************************************************************************
For anyone that is interested or that cares here are the typical FORMULAS:

(Distance to target in yards) / (100) = inches per MOA at that distance

(Number of inches of adjustment needed) / (inches per MOA at that distance) = MOA adjustment

(Number of clicks per 1 MOA on scope) x (MOA adjustment) = adjustment in clicks on scope

Note, if one is using the correct 1.047" per 100 yards instead of typical 1" per 100 yards, then you must multiply the (inches per MOA at that distance) by 1.047.

I was kidding. This is really fun. I enjoy exercising my minimalist brain.

I was taught MOA all my life, and MRAD really screws with my mind.


Thanks for the fun hammAR :toast:

My scope on my big gun has a 1/8 moa adjustment. It will come in extremely handy when shooting at 1000 yds,

As my dad taught me and I also heard in a movie (can't remember the name) "Aim Small, Miss Small" and it certainly has proven itself to me.

As hammAR noted above, 1 moa is not 1" at 100 yards. It's close enough for shorter ranges, but that extra .047" adds up at longer ranges. Question #2 as an example, at 625yds, it adds up to .293" or almost the diameter of a 30 cal bullet.

My advice to new shooters is to stop thinking in inches and start thinking in MOA (Mills is acceptable, if you're into that kind of thing :D ).

Attached is a page from a Highpower databook for the 600 yard NRA MR target. All NRA SR and MR targets have a 6moa bullseye, regardless if they're at 200, 300 or 600 yards.

Now I'm off to Highpower League at MRC for some real world practice.
