1/4 inch is 1/4 inch no matter how much it's magnified. Doesn't matter Bro.

Alrighty then!

They all are but it's best to sight in on your highest power.

Magnification has no bearing on the windage/elevation clicks. 1/4" at 100 yards while at 3x is the same at 9x.

The power does not matter. BUT - remember one click equals one fourth inch movement ONLY at 100 yards. When you go another 100 yards, or to 200, it doubles, or one click equals a half inch. At 300 yards, one click equals 3/4" at 400 yards, one click equals 1", and so on.

Really, why? My standard has been to sight it in with the magnification you will most likely use in the field.....just in case it moves anything it's not supposed to when you dial the power up or down.

Doing the math is would seem a click (1/4 MOA) would be 1/8th inch at 50 yards. For some reason it doesn't ever seem to be that way at the range...

And I'm a math guy.

A couple weeks ago I was shooting a new slug gun, had to start at 25 yds to get it on paper (no bore sight) So 1 click = 1/16th inch! Talk about turning the dial~!!!

Re: Scope clicks at?

Its is measured in MOA ( minute of angle ) That is why it takes more clicks at 25 and 50 yards to move bullet impact. The power has no bearing on moa.
