The LR game in this country started with military and LE and most all of them were trained on MILS so I am not sure the "what's comfortable" concept fits.
'Comfortable' is shooters advancing from shorter ranges to extended range shooting and bringing along what they are used to and comfortable with. It has a lot to do with th 'comfort zone'
20 years ago the norm was a much shorter shot than it is today thanks in part to better firearms, optics and components, but speaking for myself at least, I'm more 'at home' with MOA and thats coming from 'before' not now.
It's like unleaded gas. I'd still be using tetraethyl lead fortified gas if the gummit hadn't outlawed it and replaced it with th crap we have today called 'gasoline'
If some governing entity suddenly removed all the MOA optics and mandated that only MILs would be acceptable, we'd all learn the system and most likely be happy. Thats not the case.
Like the SFP versus FFP scenario. Give mke the old standby. It's worked well for 30 years for me, why upset the applecart.
