This guide will help you understand your optic's MOA turret adjustment value at different shooting distances. MOA stands for "Minute of Angle." It's a way to measure angles in shooting. Think of it like a slice of a pie.
If you cut a pie into 360 slices, each slice is a degree. Now, if you cut that one slice into 60 smaller slices, each of those tiny slices is a "minute" or MOA.

How many Clicks is 1 MOA at 25 yards
The number of clicks for 1 MOA depends on the turret adjustment value of your scope. Long range scopes have adjustments of 1/4 MOA per click.
So, if 1 MOA is roughly 0.262 inches at 25 yards:
So, at 25 yards, 1 MOA would be 4 clicks on a scope with 1/4 MOA adjustments.
For a 0.5 MOA per click turret, that will be 2 clicks to move 1 MOA at 25 yards.
For a 1 MOA per click turret, that will be just 1 click.
Calculating Clicks for Different Scope Turret Adjustments:
If the scope has 0.25 MOA / click turret value. At 25 yards, 0.25 MOA is:
0.262 inches (0.25 MOA) X 4 = 1.048 inches (roughly 1 MOA)
So, for a 0.25 MOA per click scope, 1 MOA at 25 yards is 4 clicks.
1/4 MOA per click turrets provide the most accurate zeroing on the market today, and they are mostly long range precision scopes.
0.25 MOA per click provides finer adjustments without overshooting.
