Leupold scopes in my experience have all adjusted in Inches Per Hundred Yards (IPHY) not true MOA

All Nightforce scopes adjust in true MOA

Adjust a scope 30 IPHY and you have adjusted for 300 inches at 1,000 yards. Adjust 30 MOA and you have moved the point of impact 314.16 inches at 1,000 yards

There is definately a difference
