Minute of Angle. I grew up with it and I'm too old to change now. Sort of like metric tools. You need a few to perform maintenance on your car but good old SAE still works fine....

I don't need to adjust to the world, the world needs to adjust to me.....

I'll second this.

Put me down as third to what those guys said. When I even think of changing, the cost of experimentation with scopes is too high for me.

Mils for both. Use it for arty and the math is easier.

Mils aren't metric...mils are a way to measure angles and they're any unit of measure you want. It's a base 10 system. They're a smaller unit of measure than degrees to measure angles. 6400 mils in a circle (approx).

1 mil can be 1" @ 100", 2" @ 200, etc. It can be 1 yard at 100, 5 yards at 500.

Mils get associate with metric because metric is also a base 10 number system and they're easily adapted to one another.
