Very good second question. Don't have the slightest clue why manufactures mix reticles and turrets. Makes no sense at all.
On the "advantages", no real advantage one way or another, it's just what works best in your mind.
I'm an MOA guy and one thing I don't care about the mil scopes is the reticles have dot subtensions. I don't like dots. Some guys do, I don't. I like crosshatch subtensions. That said not all mil reticles are dots, but most seem to be.
Aslo, the mil rad click @ 100 yds is about .36" vs .25" fo MOA and 3.6" vs 2.6" @ 1000 yds. I like the smaller and more precise correction.
The 1/1000 math is easier when using metric measurement but not when using inches, feet and yards. My eyes and mind are wired to inches and yards. 1 MOA equals about 1" @ 100 yds, 2" @ 200 yds, 3" @ 300 yds, etc. Not exact but close enough when determining your zero point easily in your head from the bench.
Not saying that MOA is better than Mil, it's just the way my eyeballs and mind are wired. You might be different.
