Re: Which is better 1/8 MOA or 1/4 MOA

OK --MY FLAME SUIT IS ON!! This is the truth of the matter but it depends on the rifle and the shooter. Most people do not have the skills nor the rifle and or ammunition that will fully realize the advantage to having a .2 MOA adjustment.

If you do have the ability to take advantage of this then by all means it is a good thing!

I think the !/4 is better because it has more adjustment MOA than the 1/8 so it is better for long range

I like the 1/4" moa better. Less turret adjustment required.

I varmint hunt with Mk4 scopes, and if offered, I would choose 1/8moa clicks for elevation and adjust my drop cards.

I spin the knob for every shot anyway, so I don't see where it hurts to have the finer adjustment.
