 April 4, 2013, 04:36 PM #1 chipchip Senior Member   Join Date: December 21, 2005 Posts: 247 MOA Need clarification. If a scope say that 1 click =1/4"@100 yards, 1 click=1/2@ 200 yrds. If you are zeroed @ 100 yrds and the bullet drop is 2" at 200 yrds you would move the the cross hairs up 4 clicks. If it drops 5" at 300yrds you would move up 4 clicks being 3/4 x 5 = 3.75. Is this right or wrong.

It's 3/4" per click at 300, that means one click is 3/4, 2 is 1 1/2, 3 is 2 1/4, 4 is 3, 5 is 3 3/4, 6 is 4 1/2, 7 is 5 1/4.... or, 5 divided by 3/4, which is the same as (5 times 4) divided by 3, which is 20/3, which is 6.666 clicks..... 7 clicks... To divide by a fraction, you flip the fraction, multiply by the top number and divide by the bottom. 5 divided by 3/4s is 5x4/3 __________________ Still happily answering to the call-sign Peetza. --- The problem, as you so eloquently put it, is choice. -The Architect ----- He is no fool who gives what he can not keep to gain what he can not lose. -Jim Eliott, paraphrasing Philip Henry.
