When shooting Long Range, accurate range estimation is crucial so…I made these basic Range Estimation Tools using the MOA Reticle formula (or variations thereof).
These tools allow shooters to quickly calculate the Range to Target or the Target Size based on what they are seeing in their MOA reticle scope.
Below the tools, I will outline the actual MOA Reticle formulas…
How to use the RANGING MOA Reticle Formula Calculator:
Simple…key in the Size of the Target (in cm), the Size of the Object (in MOA) and the calculator will self populate, providing you with an accurate Range to Target (in meters).
If that’s not how you roll, and you prefer inches and yards, you can use the bottom MOA Reticle Formula Calculator.
How to use the Measuring MOA Reticle Formula Calculator:
Simple…key in the Range to Target (m), and the Size of the Object (in MOA) and the calculator will self populate, providing you with an accurate Target Size (in centimetres).
Once again, if meters and centimetres “aren’t your bag baby”, and you prefer inches and yards, you can use the bottom MOA Reticle Formula Calculator.
Range Estimation & Target Size Estimation using a MOA reticle:
MOA Reticle Formula for Range Estimation:
Size (cm) ÷ Size (MOA) x 34.38 = Range (m)
Alternate Ranging Formula
Size (inches) ÷ Size (MOA) x 95.5 = Range (y)
MOA Reticle Formula for Measuring Objects:
Measuring Objects Formula
Range (m) x Size (MOA) ÷ 34.38 = Size (cm)
Alternate Measuring Objects Formula
Range (y) x Size (MOA) ÷ 95.5 = Size (inches)
Of note, 34.38 can (and often is) rounded to 34.4. This is because 1MIL = 3.438 MOA and this figure is also usually rounded to 3.44.
However, in the Range Estimation tools, I have used the unrounded figures.
NOW…FYI, I’ve also put together another Range Estimation Calculator using the MIL Dot Formula.
