    On the chairgun scope settings, there is a scope height value.
    Wher edo you measure this height? Is it the height of the mounts, the height to the center or the scope?

    Then the Clicks\MOA value. Can some one explain this?

    Farmer, I think the scope height is from the centre of the barrel to the centre of the scope and more info on MOA can be found here:

    the clicks/MOA is worked out by shooting at your zero then turn the turret 1 full rev up or down the shoot a group and measure the distance and enter it into the chairgun

    It depends if you have a 1/4 or 1/8th inch/click@ 100 yards scope. It should always be 60 minutes of angle AFAIK. My big N/S is a 1/8tyh so it is market to 6x8 clicks plus 4 click between 6 and 7=56+4=60. Hope you understand.

    Farmer, dont worry too much about MOA, its a Sailor thing, Seconds, minutes, degrees etc.
    Shoot in your Zero and then loosen the grub crews and set your Turret to "0" then lock it off, thats your reference. Then start shooting at different distances and write down the number of clicks you had to turn to hit centre. Dont lose your notes or you'll have to start again.
    A lot of the guys shoot Mildots, it doesnt compute with me so I dial in. Good luck.

    Thanks guys.

    Gerrief, you confused the crap out of me, but thanks anyway.

    "It depends if you have a 1/4 or 1/8th inch/click@ 100 yards scope. " ---> it s a 1/4


    Brian, I'll take your advise, but instead of dialing in, I will rather just figure out how far the pellet drop at a certain distance and use the holdover method. Always worked for me before, when I used open sights.

    There you go then.
    I compared my settings with CG, near as damn it exactly the same within a click or two.
