Hi, Ian curious to know if anyone has tried a 1MOA dot on their 22 bullseye pistol.  Presently I have an Aimpoint H1 2.0 MOA but was considering trying a Trijicon SRO 1.0MOA.  Any thoughts?

Well. if you compare dot sizes looking through various scopes, a 4 MOA Ultradot is far larger than a 5MOA Sightron, but the 5 MOA Sightron looks to be about the same size as the 2 MOA Ultradot, which is smaller than the 2 MOA Aimpoint which is somewhere between the 2MOA and 4 MOA Ultradot.

So there is no telling how a 1 MOA Trigicon actually  fits in!

I've been meaning to ask a related question: What dot size do you want and why? Does size matter?

I would think a small / pin-point dot would allow more precise aiming, but if so why do some choose 4-5 moa dots that almost cover the black?  With a small dot is the wobble more distracting?

I recently got shooting glasses for irons (Rx + 0.75D for dominant eye).  They blur/enlarge my Sightron dot (which looks small and round with distance-vision corrective lenses) but I don't shoot worse with the larger smudge, maybe even better.

Thanks

Different strokes for different folks. I suppose that's why the UltraDot MatchDot has different sizes to choose from.

I’m not sure that smaller is better in pistol. In rifle, maybe.  I do know that 6MOA is borderline too big for me.  I have a variable size matchdot and I usually use a small dot but have tried bigger.   Ut 1moa might be so hard to see unless turnuped up very bright.  I find bright dots tend to flare.

Not all dots measure up the same! In my experience Aimpoint 4moa dots are close to an Ultradot 2moa. An Aimpoint 2moa (and many of the micro style; Romeo, etc.) have rather small size dots (especially the H1/H2 models). The size increases with brightness setting, but (for my sad old eyes at least) the dot then "flares".

YMMV, but I never saw a UD 4 or even 6 moa come close to obscuring the black on any conventional target. However, I do agree with Wobbley that 6moa is too big for most Bullseye shooters.

Almost counterintuitively I am now finding that I prefer a smaller dot for TF/RF, because I see the X on a 25 yard target and like to "bounce" the dot onto that mark every time - of course, after 10 X's, the mark usually disappears, but I can live with that😂🤣😂🤣😜

But, my eyes see things differently every day or hour, so what do I know?
