I have a stupid question, when talking about a rifle's accuracy, what does "MOA" mean?
Minute Of Angle. One MOA equals 1 inch at 100 yards.
Correction it is Minute or Arc. It is = to 1/60th of 1 degree in a circle.
Commonly known as minute of angle. Or, if you shoot like I do, it's minute of moose.
Minute of arc (or angle)= 1.0471975511966" @ 100 yards.
Not truely 1", but pretty darn close.
In combat handgun parlance MOA is Minute of A$$hole. It represents the ability to accurately hit a bad guy at a given distance.
that sounds more true.
