I think they designed this scope for a specific use, its not meant to do everything. in my view they got it almost exactly right, the problem for me is its a mil scope, most long range hunting people prefer MOA. there isn't anything magic about either system simply different unit of measurement. its easier for me to correlate the size of something be it a wind call or size of the target or rock if I am using the MOA system.
I want to see them go 1/3 MOA clicks on the turret, keep the circle thingy and adjust it to fit MOA sizing. make the reticle SFP with 1 moa spacing on the horizontal crosshair for wind holdoffs.
I will start out by saying i am a MOA shooter. If you do the math, or more simple, a google search you will see the following;
0.1 MIL= 0.36" at 100 yards
1/3 MOA= 0.33" at 100 yards
For me, it seems much simpler to stick with MIL VS the 1/3 MOA. I was once asked how many dimes (MIL) are in $65, then again asked how many quarters (MOA), the math is much more simple for MIL.
If my choices were those two, i would choose MIL.
