Re: What system, MOA or Mil, do you use?

A life time in the military requires me to suggest another selection--Both

Interesting points in all the posts, but MOA is just a subdivision of mils, just like mils is a subdivision of degrees....

The whole thing is based on 6.283 radians or 21,600 minutes in 360 degs.... So 1 deg = 17.777 mils = 3.483 MOA

NATO and the US Military uses 6400 mils per 360 deg (just rounded up a bit).

The old Soviet system used 6000 mils, and the Swedish use to use 6300 mils, but I think they changed.


With all that said, my selection is both.

    I've recently converted MIL, the MOA system is just so much more cumbersome for lme because I use meters only for rangeong but can think in inches, though it's just so much easier to take advantage of the MIL systems flexibility.

    A FFP MIL reticle couples with MIL turrets is the winning combination for me, just so simple.

    I technically use both, but I lean towards MOA in preference. I guess just because most scopes are easier had with MOA... The MOA scale also appeals to me (in size), as I don't have any MIL scopes that are divided in .5 or .2 MILs. My favorite reticle has got to be the Sightron SIII LR-MOA2 reticle so far (of all the scopes I have lol).

    As for reticles, Vortex EBR-1 MRAD is one of my favourites, naturally in FFP.

    The astute reader will notice that there are many "things" one needs to understand about the MOA/MIL systems that vary depending on "who" sets the standard....The more you know the less "simplified" it gets LOL!
