MOA's are not for "big game" only: This customized 6.5x47 Lapua with a 16" barrel
shows that woodchucks are not safe either. "flyinlizards" gun features a aluminum
insert Benchrest style forend, MOA's rotary style muzzle brake, and wears a 6.5-20
x44mm Vortex Viper rifle scope. Using Hornady's 95gr. V-Max bullet demonstrates
that this gun is clearly capable of "multitasking"!

Gary Morris's MOA collection: This one is .243 Ackley Improved with a stainless barrel
in an 8" twist, to stabilize those long VLD bullets. Complete with muzzle brake and a
Leupold 4.5x14 LR/T scope, this is a great shooting rig...

This is Gary's purpose built PD gun; .243AI, blued Chrome Moly barrel in a 12"
twist, muzzle brake. It sports a Leupold 6.5x20 scope with sunshade attached.

Gary's .22 Steel Sighted Silhouette Pistol...nice! This is what the original MOA
concept aimed at:;a super accurate and reliable handgun that could stand up
to the rigors of competition use....this is a nice example.

Gary's Custom rig to shoot BR-50 features a full 1" diameter, 20" barrel, Jard trigger,
and a Leupold LR/T 4.5x14 scope w/sunshade. It was built around the MOA 10-22®
replacement receiver. He reports it shoots as good as it looks! Nice Rig...

This is Erik Bishop's gun in 6x47 Lapua while at a local range, getting ready for a
successful season. It features a 17 3/4" Stainless barrel, a very fast 1 in 7" twist to
stabilize those long, slippery VLD bullets, with an MOA (current design) muzzle brake.
The scope sits on an MOA design scope rail, it is a Leupold 8.5-25 VX-III, large 30mm
tube, 50mm objective, side focus, target turrets (LR/T). Installed is an MOA aluminum
reinforced BenchRest forend, and is shown with a Harris Bipod attached.

Dean Grua sent in a photo of his 30BR gun and told us:

"Here's a pic of my .30BR. It's a 1992 gun, ordered complete from Mike Dayton.
After a brief load workup, with sight settings for 50 meters only, I entered it in
Production class in Bloomington, Indiana's monthly silhouette match, with the
intent of getting the rest of the sight settings.---I only missed one chicken, but
he was at 200 meters. A 40x40 with 9x10 shootoffs...outstanding for a brand
new handgun. The lone chicken I missed was the first one at 200 meters...I
guessed wrong on the sight setting to use."

From Harry Marsh, Pensacola, Florida:

"This is my MOA Maximum I bought recently, previously owned. It came with two barrels,
a .308 Winchester and a .250 Savage (bottom photo). I have a Burris 3x12 IER mounted
on it, with Target Turrets. It's a wonderfully accurate handgun and has completely taken
over as my favorite SP. I added a Ross Muzzle brake to the .308 Winchester (top photo)
barrel and it really tamed the recoil. This will be my first year hunting with it, therefore I
have no trophy..yet...However I plan to rectify that situation this deer season!"

(Harry...we've seen the groups you've shot on your Fuzz (C&J Machine) Rest......we know
you will "rectify" the situation...Good Hunting!) Harry just sent a range target (above)
photo...WOW!..No wonder you're grinning!)

This is an excellent example of a later model (2006) M.O.A. in
6.5-284, it features a stainless frame, tapered stainless barrel
with "rotary" M.O.A. muzzle brake, and extended scope rail to
allow better scope mounting options. This appeared last year
year on an auction site, and I still regret not purchasing it...

This was on an online site a couple of years ago, 14" tapered chrome moly
blued barrel, in 7mm-08. It came with the 2.5-8x Leupold, and went for a
"song" when I forgot about it.....another regret! This represents an M.O.A.
that can be purchased reasonably, and in it's current configuration, can
take most game found in the lower 48...

The above YouTube video accompanied the ad for sale....

A good example of a nice, multi-barrel set-up. If memory serves, the blued barrel
is a 6PPC, and the stainless barrel is a 250 Savage, (both 14" length ?) featuring
the earlier MOA rotary design muzzle brake.
