Re: What is your preferred scope reticle calibration?

My team mates & I are noobs to long range shooting and after some careful consideration have decided to go with the Mil-Dot system. We all know the math and since we are all starting out "Clean" so to speak who learned the "Milliradian" or "Mil-Rad" or "Mil-Dot" system from the get go I would have to say it is a good plan. I'll let you know later how that works out! lol

When it comes to MOA vs MRAD, it truly doesn't matter as long as the knobs match the reticle. Either Mil/Mil or Moa/Moa they are both equal.

Mils and minutes are simply different units of measure that work the exact same way. you use a mil reticle the exact same way you use a moa reticle. one mil is 3.6 inches a 100 yards, 18 inches at 500 yards, and 36 inches at 1000 yards. each click on a mil turret is one tenth of a mil. If you see in your reticle that the round struck .5 mils left of center, simply add 5 click to the right. ten clicks equal one mil. the math formulas are also exactly the same. you simply use a difference constant for mils than for minutes. you estimate range and hold off your target the exact same way. The two are so much alike that if you are proficient in one its a waist of time to learn the other. If used correctly the end result is exactly the same. If you have neither, I am of the opinion that mils are easier to learn because mils work in factors of 10. some people mistakenly believe that mils are metric. this is not true. mils simply subtend units of ten.
