You'll might find a good ballistics solution calculator to be useful.

Actually, yes, there are many of these 'tactical' hybrid scopes out there (Mil/MOA) - so you need to check the manufacturer's tech specifications carefully or, if you're in a retail outlet, ask someone, before you buy.

That said, the Vortex PST scopes are pretty clear about whether they're Mil/Mil, MOA/MOA, or hybrid. And they're very good scopes.

Thanks guys.

Is there a reason why one would choose Mil/Moa?

What is a widely used ballistic calculator or app?

I use Applied ballistics (it's a Bryan Litz thing)
