People, it makes no difference. MRAD is just as fine as MOA. I shoot both and can do exactly the same thing with both. Shooters will do better without trying to break down to linear distances when using a reticle.
Guys, that's what calibrated reticles are for!!!!!
If you were shooting a straight up duplex then this discussion wouldn't be happening. But the thread is about calibrated reticle.
If you need to make a turret adjustment then you have a calibrated ruler in your scope, there is no need for thinking " I'm 3.5" high at 483 yards, what do I need to adjust?"
Your correct train of thought should be, "OK, I'm .5MRAD high at XXX yds, I need to either hold or adjust .5MRAD down for a second round perfect hit"
Or if MOA, "I.m 2 MOA low at XXX yds, I need to come up 2 MOA either on the turret or the reticle"
You will quickly realize that the distance in inches(or whatever) to POA doesn't matter, neither does the distance to the target. If I'm at 100 ydsn and I'm .5 MRAD low or if I'm 2000 yds and I'm .5 MRAD low then the adjustment is exactly the same, come up .5 MRAD.
Only time linear distances matter is when your ranging with your reticle. Then you can think about it a bit, but MILDOT masters work with MRAD or MOA. But then my other thoughts are that if your shooting LR or past 400 yds or so you need to be axactly sure of your distance, and ranging with your reticle starts to gain error very fast. An inch or 2 target size error mixed with a 1/4 MOA reticle error starts to bring you off of your true distance, get a LRF (I recommend the Vectronix Terrapin). If you have good LRF and a good clear understanding of your scope you will have very few limits when shooting LR.
Not trying to ruffle any feather but if your scope has a calibrated reticle then it should be used properly. It is easy and if there are any questions then respond back, point is, if you can see your POA and your POI, you should never have any trouble with putting them together.
Good luck guys!!
