    1000 yd. MOA target to adjust scope.

    Here is a chart that has correct .25 MOA squares of 2.6175" x 2.6175" on a 1,000 yd target that will print on an 8.5" x 11" sheet of paper. When your pit crew marks your target sighters you can mark your shot in the square ( while at your shooting bench ) it is in and then adjust your scope 1 (one) click for each square vertical and horizontal to adjust to the center of the "X" ring.

    Hope this will help getting to center. What ya think?

    I think the target is set up correctly for 1/4 MOA adjustments, not a full MOA

    I have 27 MOA in elevation for 1,000 yds. so I have to count 108 1/4MOA clicks. With 1/8MOA you have to count 216 clicks. I think I'll stay with 1/4MOA adjustments.

    PS: I originally did not state that it was for 1/4MOA adjustments.

    Why not do it the old fashioned way - put the crosshair on the BE (or wherever it was that you held) and then click the vertical and horizontal wires over to the spotter. No guessing or counting of MOA or Inches or clicks or whatever.

    Takes all of 5-seconds.

    Things sure have gotten a lot more complicated since the Internet.

    Mike,
    Actually your scope is 1/8 MOA per click at 100 yards or any other distance this is very close to 1/8" per click at 100.
    "Who has a scope that is moa??" all scopes are adjusted in MOA increments .

    Inches at 100yds just happen to be almost exactly same as MOA at that distance.

    Well it has nothing to do with context of the forum, it has to do with the average joe smoe who owns one or maybe two scopes can understand that 1/4 clicks means 1/4" at 100 yds much better than he understands 1/4 moa clicks means 1/4" at 100 and 1/2" at 200. If you ask most of these guys if it is 1/4" at 100 what is it at 200 they have no clue.

    BTW I shot BR for 10 or 15 years and owned half a dozen 36 Leupolds before I really understood MOA and I still get confused if it is 1/4" at 100 and 1/2" at 200 is it 3/4" or 1" at 300 ?

    I have preached and chided and cajoled and urged long range shooters to start thinking in MOA and forget inches. Once you do that, life will become so much simpler.

    Point blank shooters can still use inches if they want but even their scope adjustments will become simpler if they think in clicks, the same as they do with their powder measure. 200 yards = come up 6 clicks, etc. How many inches or MOA is that? Who cares.
