Re: What system, MOA or Mil, do you use?
Haagen Dazs ,.,,,,
I agree with you, the MIL system is easy, 10cm (4") spacing between the dots at 100 meters, 1 meter (40") spacing between the dots at 1,000 meters ,,,,
drop compensators on many metric scopes are 1 cm clicks,,,, 10 clicks = 1 meter at 1,000 meters ,,,,
500 meters = approx 550 yards ..... 1,000 meters = approx 1,100 yards ,,,,, SOOO EASY ,,,,,
now, I went hunting for trophy antelope a few years ago with a good outfitter friend of mine, using HIS rangefinder, I forgot his rangefinder was probably set in yards, so when he gave me the range of a nice buck at 730 yards, I held for 730 meters and sailed JUST over the antelope's back ! ,,,,,
we got the buck later that day at 200 yards, but this is the lesson learned, and if you look at the pole results here, only 28% of shooters use the MIL metric system ,,,,
what's a mother to do !??!
