# What is MOA?

What is MOA?

- The abbreviation MOA stands for a corner moment, it's easy for Americans to accept it because it is 1 in diameter of a circle of bullet scattering at 1 yard of distance) ie for Russians this is 2,54 cm at 91,5 meter. More precisely 2,9089 cm spread at 100 meters. It can be simpler - 29 centimeters diameter of the circle of the spread of bullets, when firing from 1 km))
- I came to mind only two meanings. 1.The dead bird. 2. The size of the point in the collimator sights :)
- MOA (Minute Оf Angle - angular minute)

In the West, in ballistics, this angular value is widely used to estimate the accuracy of hits, corrections during firing, etc. We, incidentally, use instead a different, linear value - a thousandth of a distance.

Mo # 769; and the extinct giant birds of the detachment are moachine. They lived in New Zealand. Did not have wings (and even their rudiments). Known 15 species, all extinct.
