    That's a neat first article, I like how it talks about the new MOA measurements. I knew the basic history and math behind the two systems, but that's much more in depth. Thanks awndray!

    Mils Definitely works better with metric;

    1mrad= 10cm @100m 5cm @50m
    1mrad= 3.6in @100yds, 1.8 in @50yds, (1.14in @100m)

    Metric measurement makes sense to me, it's easy,precise.I guess it depends on your application of your optic for your firearm.
    My hunting rifle has a hunting scope with MOA adjustments, my M1A has Mil optic......you know,for zombie measuring purposes
