I have many tactical scopes, several Nightforce. I perfer the MOA! Works great for hunting and is super simple, the way most of us first learned to count.

Re: Nightforce Reticles/MOA vs. Mil

Have you considered their CH1 crosshair?
Laser range finder/binocs?

If getting an NXS, you can dial in elevation based on a carried click card & hold off in inches for wind.
No math in the field at all.
You can print or write out a click card based on your ballistics and the day's predicted conditions. Carry in your pocket. Spot/laser range, look it up on your card, dial in your elevation, setup for the shot minding only wind & level.

It can get more defined, slope, spindrift, and coriolis, but hell you're talkin Hail Mary with reticle ranging and hold-offs.

Re: Nightforce Reticles/MOA vs. Mil

Mil has it's place and is probably as-easy to use as MOA (to guys raised on the metric system and familiar with it)

...my advice to you is to pick ONE of the two systems and stick to it. Wrap your head around "that" one system and use it in every scope and rifle you shoot.. don't mix & mingle mil and moa. Pick the one that you can most relate to mathematically without confusing yourself.

I shoot both, but MUCH SOONER prefer the MOA system.. just plain simpler IMO
