I checked with Leupold Custom Shop yesterday and they said etching MIL marks on an MOA would be "dirty" accurate to about 500yards but there would be an exponential variance because of how the 2 are calculated. Great guy to talk to, extremely intelligent.
I think I'm going with the TMR. After calculating my drop in MIL the hashes in .5 MIL increments go: 275,300,375,400,500,550,610,675... and then it goes into .2 increments. Sounds good to me to have quick references out to 550-600 range and then I'll click from there. I've found deer feel comfortable more times than not at 700 and further.
Now it's just a decision between a capped Target turret or an M1. I'm leaning Target for ethical reasons. My thought is that the turret would be used for 650+ targets and if I don't have enough time to take them off for the shot, I shouldn't be shooting.
