Which is faster? (MOA or Mrad)

If an antelope is 14" back to brisket it would be approximately 3 clicks for mil and 14 clicks for moa. This would make the mil faster to adjust than the moa. Am I thinking correctly????

I pre ordered the Vortex Viper 6-24X50mm PST FFP MOA and now thinking maybe I should change to the mil.

I'm mostly going to use it for long range hunting.

What do ya'll think???

    Clicks are determined by range not size of target.

    OK Russ. I guess I was think wrong. How about range to target? Does it make a difference?

    IMO--I think you will prefer MOA more, unless you have a lot of experience beforehand in Mils.

    Joseph, if you are ranging with moa it goes like this:
    14 from back to brisket.
    1.73 moa is your reading that brackets the 14

    Quote:
    Distance = (14 x 95.51) / 1.73 = 773 yards.


    if you are ranging with milliradians it goes like this:
    14 from back to brisket.
    0.5 mills is your reading that brackets the 14

    Quote:
    Distance = (14 x 27.778) / 0.5 = 778 yards.


    Math is basically the same but you will be a whole lot more accurate in reading
    the moa than reading the mills. My personal preference would also be MOA.
