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 agree with you on the low end. What would have been nice on the high end going to 15x is that would have pretty much eliminated any need for me to bring a spotter along with me. 12x is just not quite what i personally need to pick out antler tips on mule deer and elk at long range.

BTW, 1/10 MIL is .34 MOA so you basically have that part of your request already.

I agree on the magnification... I would buy one if it had above 12x

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.
