is there a simple way to find my MOA (308 150 grain fmj b/t) for my rifle. can i make a chart, how does all this work, I just saw the most fascinating video on youtube for using the MOA but i don't know how to find mine. I remember seeing something on best of the west website a long time ago and am not really sure of how much of that info i need for the calculater they have.

Minute of angle (Minutes are a way of separating degrees - 1 degree has sixty minutes in it). at 100 yards, it is basically 1" (1.0472") So a MOA for your rifle, or any rifle, or any pistol, or cannon, etc, is about 1" at 100yards. 2.09" at 200 yards. so 10 MOA at 200 yards is 20.9", 100 MOA at 200 yards 209" 3.1416" at 300 yards 5.24" at 500 yards6.28" at 600 yardsneed 100 MOA in inches? 100x1.0472" At 100 yards. at 1000 yards? 10x100x1.0472" http://riflestocks.tripod.com/moa.htmlor http://www.snipercou.../mildot_moa.asp for a good quick read on mildots and MOA

Gotsch,Not sure what you mean "find my MOA" Are you talking about making a chart for your 150 grain FMJ BT-308 bullet. If so, then the first thing to do is to chronograph your load. Once you know your velocity, you can then enter the number into a ballistic program. From there you can then generate a ballistic chart for that specific bullet.

One thing I will add that I forgot to tell you in my PM. Don't forget to measure the scope height. Is it 1.5" or 1.75". Is the dial a true MOA or an IPHY. Does the scope tracks well and repeatable. These are things that needs to be address first and foremost to avoid frustration once the bullet start flying. Good Luck
