MRAD vs MOA

Which do you prefer and why? MRAD or MOA? I am looking at buying a new scope for my taticle 300 wm. All opinions are welcome. Thanks

Re: MRAD vs MOA

First off you said "tactical", if this is going to be a compitition rig for tactical matches I would go mil. The tactical guys speak mills, range mills, and when shooting in teams corrections are called on mills.

That said, I like moa for hunting. I have the npr2 nightforce and it is great to call correction to some one that has moa knobs, which is what most scopes have!

The reasonfor the differing opinion, I have that scope on my hunting gun then it moves to my tactical comp gun. I am shooting a team match here shortly, and he is a strictly tactical guy. He runs mil mil knobs and reticle. It makes communication more difficult. He calls .5 mil and I have to do the math in my head to switch to moa. It's not hard just a little confusing.

So get what fits your game, hunting or tactical comp. By the way most shooting instructors in tactical settings teach mil.

Hope this did not confuse you more

Re: MRAD vs MOA

Thank you for the reply. I understand. I want to get into the tatical matches. I also want to hunt at extended ranges. Another reason I am interested is bc if my range finder fails me I have a way to range a target.

Re: MRAD vs MOA

I prefer MOA. It is a finer measurement, and it is easier for me to use.
Competing in most tac matches won't be a problem using MOA, as long as you understand how to use. Of course if you have a teammate you both need to be on the same base

Re: MRAD vs MOA

Ernie,
Could you please explain to me so that I can understand that moa is a finer adjustment. I was under the impression that mrad was finer. moa gets .25 at 100 and mrad get .10 at 100 is that right?

One m.o.a. at 100 yards = 1.047 and change inches.

One MIL at 100 yards = .10 yard or 3.6 inches.
