Caution, math ahead. How much do you care?

For the average shooter here is a simple drawing that I use to explain MOA.

The reason most shooters don't use the .047 portion of the 1.047 is because until you get to 1000 yards it doesn't add up enough to hit one click of elevation or windage. So we use 1" even.

Once you get past 1000yds it starts to matter.

This might be useful, but of course you must understand what has been explained here first in order to use it correctly.
