The MOA calculator is an invaluable tool for shooters, enabling precise adjustments to aiming for better shot accuracy. By inputting a few simple parameters, users can obtain measurements in either inches or centimeters, depending on their preference and the scenario’s demands.

### Formula of Minute of Angle Calculator

#### The Minute of Angle (MOA) Formula

The MOA represents 1/60th of a degree, a small but significant angle in precision tasks. The formulas to convert MOA into practical measurements are straightforward:

**MOA to Inches:** Inches = Distance (yards) x MOA x 1.047

**MOA to Centimeters:** Centimeters = Distance (meters) x MOA x 2.908

These formulas are essential for anyone involved in shooting sports or ballistics.

### Practical Conversion Table

To aid in quick calculations, below is a table that converts MOA to both inches and centimeters at common distances:

Distance (yards/meters) | MOA | Inches | Centimeters |
---|---|---|---|

100 / 91.44 | 1 | 1.047 | 2.908 |

200 / 182.88 | 1 | 2.094 | 5.816 |

300 / 274.32 | 1 | 3.141 | 8.724 |

400 / 365.76 | 1 | 4.188 | 11.632 |

500 / 457.20 | 1 | 5.235 | 14.540 |

This table serves as a quick reference to facilitate easier and faster adjustments during shooting sessions.

### Example of Minute of Angle Calculator

Consider a scenario where a shooter needs to adjust for a 300-yard target. Using the MOA calculator:

- Distance: 300 yards
- Desired adjustment: 1 MOA

Using the formula: Inches=300×1×1.047=314.1 inchesInches=300×1×1.047=314.1 inches

This calculation shows the adjustment needed to hit the target accurately.
