One Minute of Angle is 1.0472" per hundred yards. So one Minute of angle at 500 yards exactly 5.236 inches. Many simply say 1 inch per hundred yards and 5 inches at 5 hundred yards and this is fine until it is compounded. example if one needs 25 minutes of angle correction at 1,000 yards that is a correction of 261.8 inches. A correction of 25 inces per hundred yards (IPHY) is 250 inches an correction difference of 16.8 inches a significant amount of difference.. Many scopes adjust in IPHY and a few of them adjust in true Minutes Of Angle, such as Nightforce..

    I've always been an MOA guy....in just 1 day of shooting with a NF that was MIL/MIL I was liking the MIL/MIL much more than the MOA/MIL that I had always ran before.

    IMHO if the reticle is MOA then the turrets should be MOA. If the reticle is MILLS the the turrets should be MILlS

    Your right, but there are far more MOA knob/MIL reticle combo's out there than there are MOA/MOA.
