hold for moving targets or rapidly changing wind is feasable and required (understandably) but on stationary targets HOLD is like artillery's "fire for effect" requiring follow-up adjustments or "walk it in". (guess work/trial and error)

the idea is to KNOW the correct dope to use to insure a first round hit by "dialing in". if your calculations prove to be incorrect, then a last ditch effort to followup with HOLD "may" allow one to complete the initially desired mission.

Mil holds aren't a guessing game ... Your reticle size and mil dots are a consistent measuring tool. I'm not talking about Kentucky windage. I'm talking about calculated, accurate mil holds. It's preference. It's not less accurate by any means.

Even with rounded mil holdovers, your actual aim and impact of round difference at 600 is around 3/4".
