Thoughts on MOA adjustments

Just wondering what everyone's thought were on MOA adjustments for elevation. I was just looking at the new Vortex Viper HS LR 6-24x50 coming out this fall. It has 24 MOA of adjustment in a single rotation, but it is in 1/2 MOA per click. Just wondering if thats a fine enough adjustment to be precise for a hunting scope. I have been looking at the Huskemaw 5-20x50 which is 1/3 MOA per click. So I really don't know that its that much of a difference. Or then again just go with NF and 1/4 MOA clicks?

1/2 MOA at 1,000yds equals just over 6".

Is it enough? Depends on your intended target and range along with your own desired level of precision.

I prefer a finer level of adjustment.

Re: Thoughts on MOA adjustments

I recently put on a Vortex HS LR 4-16 on my rifle and I was a bit concerned about dialing in half MOA but it's been working very well. I'm finding it easy to make a slight hold over if needed, I really like one turn to take me from 100 yard zero to just over a 1000 yards in one turn. I've shot it out to 1450 yards and haven't been missing the 1/4 MOA. First impressions of Vortex HS LR.

Correction that's just over 5" rather than 6".

I still prefer a smaller fractional value adjustement than 1/2 MOA.
