I believe that this is the closest answer to the original question.
As some people don't know that you have to double the number of clicks at half the distance, or reduce clicks at further ranges than the scope is calibrated for.

Lord have mercy, Will. That will teach you to ask a simple question.

"If 4 clicks of A scope that has 1/4" minute adjustment's =1 moa or about 1" at 100yd How many clicks does it take to dial in 1moa at 200yd or at 50yd so on and so forth. In layman's terms please What is the formula??"

Here's the simple answer. Assuming you haven't given up oin this thread a long time ago.

A scope with 1/4" moa adjustment will take 4 clicks to move the POI (point of impact) 1" at 100 yds. It will take 8 clicks to move the POI the same 1' at 50 yds. It will take 2 clicks to move 1" at 200 yds. In laymans terms it takes more clicks to move the same 1" the closer you get to the target and less the farther out you go (past 100 yards).
Mike

Ok, I see someone else posted while I was pecking out my simple answer.
Thats the bottom line. Thats all you need to know.

All you have to do is ask....and you shall receive

A group of engineering students from Purdue University recorded that their licking machine, modeled after a human tongue, took an average of 364 licks to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop. They tried the same licking test on 20 volunteers and found that the average licks to the center were 252 licks.

A chemical engineering doctorate student from the University of Michigan recorded that his licking machine required an average of 411 licks per Tootsie Pop.

A group of students at Swathmore School used human lickers in a scientific experiment and determined it took an average of 144 licks to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop.

Based on the wide range of results from these scientific studies, it is clear that the world may never know how many licks it really takes to get to the Tootsie Roll center of a Tootsie Pop.

Well when I was a kid, I think the wise old owl was right. Three, and bite into it. Later as I matured, it took about 15.

Better question is, at 50 and 100 yards, how many moa does a Tootsie pop cover? Or translated, how many shots to get to the center of a Tootsie pop?

Not "angle"; but "arc"

In this thread's context, MOA stands for Minute Of Arc, not Angle

"Angle" is used in cartography and mapping, not in relation to shooting.

More here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Minute_of_arc
