1 MOA at 100 yards is 1.047 inches but at a 1,000 yards is 10.47 inches.

So you can imagine you might be shooting pretty paper target good at 100 yards and miss am man completely ato 1,000.

500 yards is 5.235 inches so for me I do not worry much about 1 MOA except to know I ain't as good as I might think.

Again reminds me I ain't as good as I think when shooting at 100 yards or meters.

Hope those two post help. Good luck!
Your 2 posts disagree with each other. 10 cm = a little less than 4 inches.
100 meters is close to 100 yards. But 1 inch is much different than 4 inches.
(1 MOA at 100 yards is 1.047 inches but at a 1,000 yards is 10.47 inches.)


I think the metric version should read 1 minute at 100 meters = 2.8 or so cm. (A bit over an inch.

Thanks you are correct. Maybe I looked at a Mil chart. Anyway I deleted the second post. Thanks again.
