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

The way I learned it, using the meters and Mil's has always been easy for me. I'm sure, had I learned yards and MOA first, I'd say using that system has always been easier. 6 to 1, half dozen to another.

    Moa just seems more intuitive to me. Especially at mid ranges where you can mostly eliminate the digits behind the decimal point.

    I use both. Once I got past the mental block of MOA ONLY I'm fine with either.

    I generally prefer MIL based reticles though as they are not as fine of graduations. MOA to me are too cluttered that subtend every MOA.

    MIL Dot for me. After 27 yrs in the Military using them I am pretty familiar with them. Go with what I know.

    You are the one pulling the trigger and spending the money so get what you want. MRAD is easier for me to quickly adjust for and it's not because I was in the Army. I carried a 249 saw for a personal weapon and BRM is more of a crash course with no optics so I was trained how to watch tracers smack into plastic silhouettes. Tactical has nothing to do with my choice. If you need me to tell you what to use, drop off your rifle and ammo and I'll get back to you. May require some testing to see what your rifle likes.

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

    I have both types and use the MOA the most. I live in Iowa and more than 1-200 yards is the norm. I just set up for a 200 yd max shot and aim on center, depending on wind speed and direction.

    + marks the spot...or very close to it for me.
