    Poll metric or imperial

    What do you use for correction.
    "Hunting and fishing" fucking over licenced firearms owners since ages ago.

    Metric for anyone not living in the past. Nothing worse than working with imperial

    I have four MOA scopes but now moving to Mil...
    Though my brain was 20 minutes behind my actions at a service rifle shoot a number of weeks ago, when I was thinking MOA on my new Mil scope... I got 0,0,0,0 for that particular match...
    next round was a lot better

    Difficult
    I'm old enough not to have been taught metrics at school, but can see the merits in a system that is far simpler to use.
    I'm in the process of going fully metric for dialling.
    Have one mil scope, have updated my rangefinder from yards and am in the process of selling the last moa turret scope and getting another mil one.

    You'd expect a poll regarding measuring distance based on the thread title, no?

    Tick box 4 gives us clue to the applications of the first three tick box subjects, ie as units of windage/elevation

    Then conveniently Vietnamcam uses a modifier to the title in the form of a question in the first post in his thread.

    So there's two clues as to what he's on about, one more subtle than the other.

    So you are right, it's a poll on measuring distance, and the first clue is in the heading, and the second clue is in the question in the first post, both telling us it's windage/elevation distance.

    People use the term "kentucky windage" colloquially to refer to holdover as well as windage.
