Re: MOA vs MRAD Vortex Viper PST

Whatever one you go with you will be fine. I personally prefer the MIL system because it is based on system of 10s. I know how to range with both system and for me Iím more accurate with the MIL system on objects past 500yds. To get a really good reading with the MOA system you will need to use 1.047 not 1. If you think about it now days the LRF are a lot more accurate and work really well at distance so using the RET for ranging is not a big deal.

Like you stated it is an angular measurment, the departure from it's start increases, just like MOA. So at 200m 1.0 MIL equals 20cm, 30cm at 300m etc. A 0.1mil click would be 1cm, 2cm, 3cm etc.
Well, maybe I overreacted with "entirely incorrect", I just get tired of seeing the mil system as being stated as a metric measurement, when it's not. It can be used with either yards or meters. Or cubits, light years, whatever radial distance you use to measure with, there it is... 1/1000th of that radial distance. I range in yards, so I convert my target size to yards.

That was my point. Vortex can make a custom turret that will eliminate the programs you use to enter the "dope".

Range the target turn the custom turret to the distance, hold for the wind and shoot. Very fast and accurate.

Re: MOA vs MRAD Vortex Viper PST

I range with a rangefinder (and carry extra batteries). Less confusion and guessing. I am used to thinking in inches instead of cm so I like the MOA. Yes, I know I can assume .36" per click at 100 yards - but why? Why not 1/4" per click at 100 (actually slightly over 0.25)?

I actually have both and don't get confused but I am more comfortable with inches. I suppose if my targets were laid out in cm boxes instead of inch boxes and my range was set up at X*100 meters instead of X*100 yards I would be better off with the mill. But they are not either (because I grew up using the inches and the guys who marked off the range did also).

Re: MOA vs MRAD Vortex Viper PST

off the subject but what is perplexing to me is that the Mil PST scope is 5 mils per revolution which would come out very close to 15 MOA. Why does the MOA PST have 12 minutes per revolution. This is the only thing i dont like about my 4-16 PST, other than that its awesome for 650 buckskins
