We get asked this question alotincrement, so I hope this little chart will help someone out.  The confusion stems around the scope's internal adjustment value at different yardages.  The root of the confusion is the statement, "Your scope's adjustment value doubles every hundred yards", is taken the wrong way.

 

The wrong interpretation is that a scope with 1/4 MOA adjustments at 100 yards will be 1/2 MOA at 200 yards, 1 MOA at 300 yards and 2 MOA at 400 yards.

 

This chart is the correct interpretation.  A fast and easy way to figure it out is to just multiply the yardage (using a single digit to represent the yardage) by the increment.  IE:  A scope with 1/4 MOA adjustment at 500 yards would be 5 x .25 = 1.25

 

Per increment 25 50 100 200 300 400 500
1/2 MOA 1/8 1/4 1/2 1 1 1/2 2 2 1/2
1/4 MOA 1/16 1/8 1/4 1/2 3/4 1 1 1/4
1/8 MOA 1/32 1/16 1/8 1/4 3/8 1/2 5/8
