And therein lies the problem with scope manfs recently. Many of them, Leupold likely being the worst, don't have many options, sometimes no options, for a good reticle to match MOA turrets. Other companies have nice MIL reticles but offer them with MOA turrets.
Again they can certainly be used this way but surely isn't the best method for ease of use and calculation purposes.
I am not a big Leupold fan but I think you are right in that the M1 is still a MOA turret. I think the M5 turret is MIL based but am not sure what scopes they can be installed on.
I don't think Leupold offers any MOA reticles currently except for their BDC B&C, and VH reticles but those subtensions aren't consistently spaced but instead vary to try to match the drop for most calibers at 100 yard increments. Not my personal preference for reticles. I prefer an evenly spaced reticle, 2 MOA or 1/2 Mill for instance).
