Re: SUB MOA
I understand it somewhat; a lot of the guys I shoot with are a lot more proficient with it than I am. This way it was explained to me; First get inches out of you head, when you create drop charts do it with MOA. You're simply moving a measurement then, it's not anything else but a reference. Take for instance your shooting 500 yards, you come up 9.25 MOA, read your elevation knob like a ruler dial it to 9 1/4 marks and your good to go. That is far better than taking the time to count 37 clicks, it is even better when you are shooting long distance, say a 1000 yards, come up 25 minutes, you can dial 25 minutes on your scope a lot easier than coming up 250". How many clicks is 250"? Well that is kinda easy but you can kinda get an idea where this is going. Once your in the ballpark and seeing bullet splash on the berm you aren’t counting or figuring anything, you shoot then adjust the scope to where the bullet hit. At 500 yards it's pretty hard to see bullets hit because of the recoil but at a 1000 you have almost 1.5 seconds, with a little practice and a decent scope you have plenty of time to get back into the scope and see the bullet splash. At 500 yards you just need really good optics to see bullet holes on the paper.
