You are right that most M3 comes with finer adjustments.

Not true... I have three of the M3 scopes - two of the MK4-M#'s and one of the M3-LRs.
I was a consultant to Leupold on problems with the M3 cams.
ALL the M3 scopes have 1 moa clicks... but nothing says the dial has to be set ON THE CLICK! You can set the elevation in between the clicks, try it its easy. I can easily split a click into three parts - that = 3" at 1000 yds, and that's no sacrifice.
I put one of these scopes on a .264 WM 1000 yd feral dog rifle I'm just finishing up. The M3 is faster to use than any other scope, and faster than a palm computer. Plus the batteries never die [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/wink.gif[/img]
And another advantage is that with the standard scopes, it is easy to loose "your place" on the dial, and be a full turn (or two) on a long range shot - can't EVER happen with an M3 - your range is 800, you set it to "8", and that's it!
For other elevations than your "base", run the ballistics for other altitudes, and make a cheat sheet... so at X thousand feet, you add 1 click at 500, 3 at 700, and 5 at 1000 etc.
