Brent,

Given the fact that any given bullet lands with the possibility of being high or low by 1/2->1 MOA, given the grouping ability of a load, the potential error in the shooter's hold and sight picture, slight changes in wind direction or velocity, and the potential error in the spotter's seeing the hit, I don't believe there is a nickel's worth of difference, whether you use MOA or points... Just too many uncontrolled or partially-controlled variables to argue over which is more precise or precise enough. If we were shooting F Class it might be different...

Clarence, it won't matter enough to worry about in mid-match, but for someone putting together drop tables or guestimating their first 1000 yds shot from a 100 or 200 yd zero, yeah, it matters some. Roundoff error is cumulative and can be fatal at times.
