The benefit with MIL/MIL, or MOA/MOA for that matter, is that the turrets and the reticle work together because they are using the same angled measurement. So the math is the same, you can range with the reticle and dial with the turrets with no formulas to convert MOA to MIL or visa versa.
There are a ton of good reads here about the differences between MIL and MOA. For the most part is has to do with whether your brain works better with 1/4's or 1/10's.
The most important point IMO is to remember that both MIL and MOA are angular measurements and we do a disservice to ourselves when we get all caught up in the math part of it and try to turn angular concepts into linear ones. If you wrap your mind around the concept of using angular measurements both are very easy to use. The math is pretty easy for both as well but guys are typically more comfortable with one or the other.
