This site shows a huge cross-section of MOA shooters.

If you talk with many optics dealers, their demand is for Mil scopes... by a huge margin. About dead opposite from the numbers in this poll actually.

I wonder what the reasons are for the difference?

Part of it is that NF has been the main staple for repeatable LR scopes and they were late into the MIL game and are still a bit behind of some companies. Even Leupold was late getting into the MIL game. Many of the true LR guys have been at this a long time and their options were MOA. My take anyway.

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

I'm with Jeff.

The more I read the more confusing it gets but then I have a love/hate relationship with metric tools and things and if possible I substitute SAE. (Everything mechanically fastened should be 13mm.......

Not to worry, I'm only buying one scope this coming year, for my smoke pole and it will be MOA.

I don't want to be like Europe, not interested in Soccer, don't drive a European car and prefer the Kings English (or at least the local version of it....)

For decades, Europeans have been telling us their system is better. If it is, then why are they going broke?

I don't see that theory holding much liquid, if any, because NF is a small part of the LR optic market.

I'd say that Leupold and Stevens is a much larger player.

I personally think it has to do with the 'whats comfortable for me to use' scenario.

Mils are not metric. MOA is not imperial.

I encourage you to read the 3-part series I wrote on rifle sighting systems. I start with MOA.
