I have several scopes marked 1 click=1/4" at 100 yds. they are older scopes. I should have said that. I assumed they still made them?

MOA is an Imperial measurement. Miliradians or mils is the metric equivalent. Though I am familiar with the metric system I use almost exclusively our Imperial system. My three PCP rifles are .22 caliber. I shoot. 16 and 18 grain pellets. All three will shoot sub 1 MOA. at 50-75 yards. All three shoot at around 900 fps.mv and deliver 28-32 fpe.  My shooting range has targets at 25-50-75 and 100yards. I judge wind in Mph. Wind drift and drop in inches. All of these measurements have an metric equivalents, but I don't intuitively know them like I know the Imperial system. I own several Mil dot scopes, they are certainly usable, but for precision shooting especially at distance or in wind, I much prefer MOA. To each their own.
