Minute Of Angle

1 MOA is (I believe?) equivelent to 25mm at 100 meters (possible 1 inch at 100 yards, not sure). For example, a rifle that will shoot 1 MOA is capable of shooting 25mm groups at 100 meters.

MOA is Minute of Angle as Ken said. It translates into 1" at 100 yards, 2" @ 200, 4" @300 etc.

Its pretty much the standard by which we measure accuracy in rifles.

I'ld check your math at 300.

The circle is divided into 360 degrees. Each degree is subdivided into 60 minutes, and minutes are subdivided into 60 seconds.

While this is not exactly 1" @ 100 yds, it is REAL close.
