If a scopes adjustment is .5 MOA per 100 meters how do you compute that if all your shooting is done in yards?

Did it just add another step to all your calculations?

Re: Scope conversion from MOA at 100 Meters to 100 yds

If your scope adjustment is 0.5 MOA, it's 0.5 MOA at any distance, because scopes adjust in angles. The value of that adjustment changes with distance to the target, but the angular value is always the same. At 100 yards, a 0.5 MOA adjustment is 1.047/2 = 0.5235 inches.
