What is M.O.A?
M.O.A. stands for Minute of Angle. 20 M.O.A. or Minutes of Angle is equal to 1/3 of one degree.
Which M.O.A. do I need to purchase?
We recommend 0 MOA for shorter distance shooting (0-500 yards). See your scope manual to determine the amount of elevation adjustment or range you have. For long distance shooting we recommend 20 MOA (500-1000 yards). The 20 MOA angled downward mount will allow you to see and zero where your bullet will strike over a long distance like 1000 yards.
How far will Zero or 20 M.O.A. allow me to shoot?
0 MOA is generally used for shooting 0 – 500 Yards depending on your scope and caliber
20 MOA is generally used for shooting 500 – 1000 + yards depending on your scope and caliber
At 100 yards, one MOA is about 1" (slightly more)
The scope mount cants downward at 20 MOA, which will allow you to zero your gun at a greater distance.
We typically recommend zeroing a rifle with a 20 MOA rail at 200 yards.
Most of the time you will not be able to zero a gun with a 20 MOA rail at 100 yards.
At 600 yards, a 20 MOA mount will point the scope down .120” or point the barrel up depending on your perspective.
One MOA = 1" at 100 yards or 6 inches at 600 yards. 20 MOA = 200 inches at 1000 yards.
