I must say, -dean correct me if im wrong- MOA mean minute of angle and for this to work... it is ONLY used for 100 yards...

So logicaly, if you say .50 @ 200, than its .25 @ 100 M

I interpret that as 1" at ~200yds/meters.

.50"@200-meters is correct. And .25"@100-meters is correct, on good day better than .25". Mind you this is with 168gr BTHP Sierra bullet, IMR powder, Federal 210 primers, Lapua case.

Ok guys, hopefully this is something I can add to help correct a couple things in this post. Here is a chart that allows you to figure what your MOA is at different yardages. MOA doesn't convert directly into inches and it is not linear with distance. A 1" group at 200 yards is one half MOA. If you are shooting 1/2" groups at 200 yards you are actually shooting 1/4 MOA. The chart has group size in the body, distance on left edge and MOA across the top. Hope you all enjoy.

Nope, you're wrong. See VF1000ride's post.

1 MOA at 100 yards is the same angular subtension as 1 MOA at 500 yards. The linear distance between the subtension of the arc is what is not the same, but it follows a linear proportion.

1 minute of angle subtends 1" (approx, but close enough) at 100 yards, 1.5" at 150 yards, 3" at 300 yards, 6" at 600 yards, and so on.

Basic trig.

Sweet '03s and sweet results.

I've been thinking lately, I've owned a 1917, M1s, Carbines, but never a 1903. That may be the one rifle I'm looking for this year when I start hitting the gun shows, etc.

How long have you had those beauties?

Any idea what nice ones go for lately?

Thanks.

03s and 03A3s

Thanks, I think they're great old rifles! The A3 was a thank you from a friend I built a car port- deck for several years ago. He got it from his Father-in-law back in the 70s. The original invoice was for $18.50 in 1954. The 03 I bought about 10 years ago from an old timer who could no longer shoot. You can buy several models of both right now from the C.M.P. for reasonable prices. They'll come covered in cosmolene requiring some clean up,but in armorers approved condition. Go to their sight at http://www.odcmp.com/ to check availability and prices. I prefer the A3 as the rear mounted peep sight is easier on old eyes, but the 1903s are probably the last truely finely crafted military rifle made. You can find an occasional rifle at a gun show,or from a dealer,but the best prices will come from C.M.P.(unless you fall into a deal by chance as I did on the A3. Best of luck, S.R.

Background:

South Carolina guy, in middle age, gets addicted to collecting war rifles (thanks to the outrageously generous gift of a CMP M1 by another frequent poster to this forum; at the risk of blasphemy: "no greater love...").

South Carolina guy goes to conference in California; other conferees are not likely to appreciate rifle-talk; realizes how much he misses physical proximity to collected war-rifles, especially newly acquired M1903.

Seeking "rifle-related activity", SC guy digs up digital photos of rifle from laptop hd, to post to web.

So here it is: c.1918 M1903 Mark 1, WWII arsenal rebuild. Bbl stamped '41. I think I'm the first one to have shot it since rebuild.

df357,
A treeclimbing M1917! Mine can't do that.

More seriously (I don't remember if I asked you this before), how well can you shoot this rifle. I find my 1917s more difficult to shoot well than my No.4 mk2, or my '03.

Looking forward to checking out your forum.
