I struggle with understanding MOA and other such ballistic ranging terms. What's works for me is knowing at 300 yards I need to hold over 8inches or whatever.
I recently brought a leica rangemaster 1600 with a ballistic calculator in it. I fully appreciate these are probably inaccurate and not to be trusted until tried and tested and not really needed in stalking. This is more for holes in paper and a bit of fun, however.... It gives a hold over value in MOA or MRad.
Reading stuff online most sights say if your zeroed at 100yards then it's basically one inch is 1 MOA every 100 yards so 2moa 200 yards and so on to 5moa 500 yards.
Now theres every chance, in fact I'm sure I'm being thick here and probably missing something. Basically all I want to know is if I laser a target and it says holder is 5, 8 or 10 or whichever moa how do I covet MOA to inches?
Ps I have standard 8x56 scopes on my centrefire rifles
