4 inch target. roughly 2 inch group. 400 yards.
If you read what I said, I shot a group at 400. THEN I said the stupid shit.

    It needs to be 800 metres, and all in the red.
    And tighter.
    Not that I'm fussy or anything.
    Did I mention get a Milliradian FFP scope, and a Tikka?
    🤔
    Oh, may I suggest a decent Milliradian FFP scope, and perhaps a lovely Tikka rifle?

    What I love about this particular pursuit, is that there is always that quest to achieve better results, at further distances.
    And fun with likewise obsessed mates.
    Just enjoy what you do.👍

    It really doesn't matter, MILs or MOA. All of my scopes are MOA, but that is because that is what I grew up using and am comfortable with. Probably the bigger reason, however, is the two people I shoot with the most also use MOA scopes so it's easy for us to spot for each other and give corrections.

    My dad has a scope with MOA turrets and a Mil-Dot reticle, which drives me crazy. You see in the scope that you hit "X" Mils low or right or whatever and then have to then dial that in MOA (if you're going to dial). Definitely easier just to hold over in the reticle in this case.

    @308pirate you know the guys I'm talking about. Like the guys fresh out of college that show up to a job site and declare "Behold! An engineer has arrived to solve world hunger!" And then they wander around saying "Lets make this bigger. Yeah. Bigger is good."
    Or the older homeowner that we built a home addition for. He was an engineer, so he designed it. It was 20'x24' and he had 12" microlam beams as rafters 12" o.c. going to a 2 ply 24" microlam ridge beam. You could drive a tank on it. Anytime we questioned his logic or tried to explain the level of overkill he dismissed it by citing his 40+ years of engineering. We asked his wife what he did because he wouldn't tell us. Turns out he was an acoustical engineer.

    Remember the thread just like this by that joelinux guy? After pages of him telling the forum he was the smartest guy around he finally declared that we couldn't understand him because he was an engineer..
    Where is that thread at? I’m bored. I want to laugh.

    Everyone uses feelings when discussing this topic. I prefer to rely on my double PhD from MIT in Quantum Projectile Physics to resolve this silly debate, as I have already done long ago in this thread.

    Irrefutable science. Deal with it:

    Have we established that you even shoot yet? Or are you still king of the NV special Education group?

    Ahhh but according the the Schroedinger paradox, until you look, it is both mil AND moa....

    So do I have any takers?
    There's gotta be one of you sorry four flushers try an tell me that Mils aren't Metric or, they weren't designed to be metric.

    You skank skank skank fucking amateurs.

    Fuck MILOA & fuck your MILF DOTS.

    I shoot MOAR-D*.

    It’s a new Nightforce angular measurement. Check it out sometime, you non-acoustical-engineer slobs. Might learn something.

    Peace out.

    Ahhh but has anyone explained the 'Spooky Action at a distance" where when you actually look through your scope, the bullet jumps from a superposition of MOA and MIL trajectories to the observed measurement?
