There are differences in the "Mildot" reticles used by the US Army and USMC, but that has to do with the dot shape, round vs. oval, and not the angle measured.

Last I checked USMC used 6400, it is NATO standard and all the USMC artillery guys get their training at Fort Sill, OK same as the Army guys. Standardizing fire support is damn important, although our guys have to learn the Soviet system in order to train Afghan Soldiers on the Soviet aiming system (even the ubiquitous 82mm system has the 6000 mil adjustments).

Machine guns are awesome until you have to carry one.
