That is a personal preference question.  I actually prefer MOA turrets/reticles, but most often use mil/mil.  Many here like the mil/mil better.  I don't have the URL handy, but you can search the internet for MOA vs mils and get a pretty good assessment of the utilities of each.  There are good and bad points about each.  Preference...

I'm really used to having scopes that have  1/4 moa clicks but have mildot reticles but the 3-9x42 Super Sniper was my first Mil Mil scope and if first impressions are correct having the adjustments in the same type of calibration is very cool because with mil mil you aim at the center of the hundred yard target shoot a hole in the paper and use the reticle to measure how high or low and how far left or right then to correct you just dial in the measurements into the knobs.  It would be the same with a scope that ran 1/4 moa clicks and had a MOA based reticle.  It is easier sometimes to work with moa because rough estimate of 1moa = 1 in at 100 yds  or 5 inches at 500 yds so when I go down to look at a hole on the target shot  at 500 yds and its 10 inches low and 5 inches left  I know I need to dial in 2 moa correction up elevation and 1 moa right windage.  If the rifle had low enough recoil to spot your own hits or if you had a spotter to call where the impact was you could be really quick getting on target Mil Mil.  Of the last four scopes I bought half were mil mil and half were not, but they had specialty features not available in the mil mil scopes.
