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

I hunt and shoot tactical precision matches and run MOA. I have two USO scopes with .250 MOA windage and elevation Turrets and MOA reticles. I have the MOA scale reticle on one (IPHY) and the RDP MOA reticle on the other (True MOA) This works well for me. Some of my shooting partners have USO spotters with MOA reticles in them, they mostly run MOA as well which makes spotting for eachother easier since we are "speaking the same language". I carry a dope card in my cheek rest with my drops from 100 yards out to 100 yards in 5 yard increments. I also carry my data book in my pack as back up in case I lose the data stored on my rifle. One addtion I am planning on making this year is adding an angle cosine indicator on my scope to help make angled shots more quickly. Would have been handy to have last fall, missed a buck on opening day at 725 yards on a steep downhill shot (approximately 40 degrees) I dialed my 725 dope and held at the bottom of the deer and still shot over it. After doing the math later I should have dialed my 550 yard dope at that angle, would have been much quicker to come up with a more exact solution quickly had I had the ACI on the the side of the scope, I knew my POI would be high, but I felt I had "held under" enough to compensate for it....I was wrong!

I'm MOA all the way!

Ok, a question for the Mil users. Explain (as if I'm new to long range precision shooting) why you would select the Mil system over MOA? (other than the reasons: I aways have, my scope is a Mil scope, the military does it).

Much easier to calculate.

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

I'm doing market research with my question. I'm an engineer, so i get the math. I'm more interested in the practical application and perceived advantages. My background has all been channeled in one direction, so I would like some perspective.

Perhaps adding a why to the thread question is not too out of line from the original intent?

What is a specific application where the MIL system is easier/faster/more precise, etc? I would like to understand, and I'm sure new shooters interested in the sport would be well served by a specific example to help them choose which way.

On mil to mil ffp scopes. Faster target acquisition.
If you see bullet impact at any given range due to elevation or windage changes you just make the mil adjustment and its there.

I hoped this thread would die, but you just push it I say this though, you answer should be a sticky, all those posts and it took just one sentence to explain it. have a nice day!
