The same could be said for a MOA scope.......anybody can walk a bullet onto target but what most here strive for is that first shot cold bore to be on target.

Ethan Parke........roped the deer in 1953. Put tags in his ears turned him loose then shot him in 1955. Always liked this pic
The story was told to me by his wife who owned the little motel we stayed at on a deer hunt in Malta Idaho about 17 years ago...... Youll never see that again. Just a cool pic of Idaho deer huntin history

I use MOA for the time being as it is easiest for me to do in my head... And I have MOA turrets... And the wind formula I use is in MOA... I know a good wind formula for MILS as well... So I may change in the future if I pick up a MIL Dot reticle in my next scope. Right now just using the Nikon BDC reticle, cuz I am a broke shooter. Making the cheap stuff work for me...

moa and mills are just units of measure. you can range with moa just the same as mill Distance to Target(Yards) = Height of Target (inches)Image Size(MOA) * 95.5
but why bother when there are so many lr finders out there. If you don't have the time to lazer it probally don't have the time to shoot an animal at lr, static targets are a different game. Have shot both and as long as you match your ret to the turets i did not feel an advantage or disadvantage to either one. learn what you got practice and rock on I would say.

Scope also has BDC dials, so still using MOA.

Spend 30$ and order the MILDOT Master. It will get you dialed in. My fingers would fall off trying to type it all in for you. Simple system with lots of options.
