Nikon 8424 Question

I am looking real hard at this scope.
My Question is:
On Nikons web site for this scope
on the Key Features page it says "hand turn retical adjustments -1/4 MOA
But on the Tecnical Specs page it says Adjustment Graduation -1/8 MOA

Can someone please tell me which way it is.:confused:
Thanks, Mike

That is a little wierd, I couldn't tell ya what is is. However, I don't think that Nikon is actually set up as MOA, rather they are set up on inch per hundred. My Monarch 5.5-16.5 is set up at .25 inch per hundred clicks. good luck

Crap:(
I lost the scope on ebay last night because I did not know the answer.
Nikon does not give a contact # so I can't even call them.
Help

SWFA says 1/8. I'm pretty sure this is right.

Since the 8424 has a 1/8 MOA I can not add Kenton TTC's
so now I am looking at the 8421 which is a 4-16X42.
Can anyone tell me about the tracking of this scope.
Thanks,
Mike
