matching turrets to reticle and FFP vs SFP

I got to test this first hand this weekend
had 2 identical (almost) scopes
M4 TMR 4.5-14.5x50
1 SFP and M1 MOA knobs
The other, FFP and M5 mil knobs
I had a chart with both mil and MOA values for out to 1K
Targets were 250, 500, 750 and 1K
Both were new scopes being dialed in..
The SFP model had been zeroed at 100 yards.
After shooting for about an hour with the SFP version and having to keep referencing the chart for mil to MOA I got fed up and mounted the FFP version, removed bolt, bore sighted at the 250 yard with my eye and dialed the scope in to the same plate using the 1 Mil line below the center crosshair which gave me my 100 yard zero.
After about 4 shots I was on and moved out to 500, 750 and 1K
The rest of the day was with the FFP/mil/mil
To me, it was SO much easier and like the other poster said, why in the world would they EVER make a mismatched turret/reticle system is beyond me.. it makes zero sense whatsoever to me.
Mil or MOA is personal preference though I do find Mil easier personally.
I found I could easily use the reticle at 250 or 500 and dialed to 750 and 1K
Or I could dial in at 250 or 500, but it was so simple and fast and with the FFP it didn't matter which power setting I was on (say I backed off from max for a bigger field of view at 250 moving between targets fast and then moved out to 500)
