correct but i got to add that a 1/10 mrad adjustable scope is also 3.6"/10 or .36" per click @ 100 yards this is why a minute of angle scope has a finer adjustment being .25" at 100 yrds

Re: MRAD vs MOA

This is something I've wandered about for a while, say someone says to hold 1 mil at 500yds that would be 3.5 moa right or I'm I looking at it bass akwards.

Actually you are talking a 1/4 minute click scope. While absulutely unnecessary for hunting I prefer a 1/8 minute click scope or .13 (and change) inches per click @ 100 yds.

No. Life will be much easier if the reticle matches the knobs. If you feel you need the finer .25 MOA adjustments, getting a scope with an MOA reticle will make you much happier. Conversely, if you want a mil reticle, it makes no sense to get MOA knobs. Of course there are some scopes with .05 Mil knobs out there which are finer than .25 MOA (Leupold, some Zeiss). I have little interest in such fine adjustments (much like 1/8 MOA) but if you really want them you can find them.

Re: MRAD vs MOA

I'm confused. It seems to me that it matters if one has a 1st or 2nd focal plane scope . If you are in 1 st focal your mil reading remains the same. For the rest of us who can only afford 2nd focal plane scopes it changes. 2nd focal plane only works at its max power. At 500 yds , wouldn't you be 18" ?

Re: MRAD vs MOA

Jon A, you are right. After my post I saw how what a dumb comment I made. I am very interested in the new vortex viper scopes with first focal plane moa reticles and mrad reticles. They look very good. But who knows
