Re: Conversion from mil-dot to MOA on IOR MP-8
First, I agree.
It was in the Carter era that the metric system was put up for vote and we Yanks ruled it out in favor of imperial measurement..It's just that we can not bloody visualise in metric, if you tell me you want a barrel 600 mm long, I can not visualise how long that barrel would be without thinking long and hard about it..when it comes to visualising a target, although 1 mil equals x cm, I don't know what 1/10 of a cm is, as easy as 10's work..like asking me how many stone I weigh, I say depends on which stone..I can learn, and adjust, which is what needs to happen..I know metric, and I know imperial, but when I get to a print in imperial, and on the lathe with metric dials, man... Which is why I think we've stuck to MOA in rifle shooting.
