    Please God, Santa & Mrs Tooth fairy

    Can someone form Europe please give us a scope in both MOA & their poxy milrad.

    Why do European scope manufacturers have to be so friggen pig headed & only do Milrad, Mounted a Z8 Swaro to do a mag review today and while it's an awesome piece of kit, it fucked me up completely Kinda puts me off buying one.

    Get with the programme man, even a painter should be able to work out units of tens or parts there of.
    Take your socks off if that helps.

    Nar I like inches having 10" is far better than having 10mils

    Sorry bro but remember I'm a no show for next week as we're away down south chasing mountain goats, Rossco will proudly fly the Manawatu flag

    My point is that when your'e tired, dehydrated & not thinking straight after a big climb up the tops & see a decent stag you want'a shoot, best to KISS IT, Keep it simple stupid
    always use what ya know & go into auto mode.

    You cant emphasise that enough, all you scopes need to dial the same way, elevation, windage & magnification.

    If they don't sooner or later you WILL get the "I cocked up & adjusted the wrong way T-shirt"

    MOA is like the imperial system, MIL is far better and easier to understand.

    I find MOA & yards very easy & its a finer measurement which should mean its more accurate.

    Try zeroing an extremely accurate rifle & you will understand why target rifle scopes have 1/8 MOA instead of a 1/4....try that with .1 mil & you will be cursing...

    I will soon have one scope that is all Mil, FFP & metres....this poor old dinosaur will struggle

    They're all just numbers anyway, that I can convert in my head.

    For quick estimates of sIZE On a target the inch is the better unit. Everyone male Or female Knows what 6" is. and One inch.

    I've got two scopes with SFP mil dot reticls but moa click and its really better to just leave the caps on and hold over .

    The other is FFP mil mil and a dream to use. Have been known to turn the wrong dial and also forget to dial down after the shot. But ther you go haven't done it twice (yet).

    what say you send that clunky Old Z8 Over to me to test out ? will try it on 7mm 08 and 22LR and the 22 Springer and that will sort out if its ok or not.
