I think the math is easier. 1 MOA = 1.047" @ 100 yds... or for all practicle purposes, 1 MOA equals 1" @ 100 yds, 2" @ 200 yds, 3" @ 300 yds, etc.
A mil rad equals 3.6" @ 100 yds and 36" @1000 yds.
I think in inches and MOA is more suited to that. MOA is also more precise terminology incrementally speaking. Most termionology and references for LR shooting are based MOA.
Here's a good article explaining the two systems...

Here's another good article on mil dots. The author prefers the mildot based on comparison to a multiplex MOA style reticle. The NF NP-R1 or R2 reticles change all that.
