So can I assume that a red dot sight rated at 3.5 MOA would be better (more accurate) than a red dot sight rated at 7.0 MOA?
I have a S&W M&P 40 CORE Pro Series that I am looking to put a Leupold Deltapoint Red Dot sight on. They have 2 versions, a 3.5 MOA version and a 7.0 MOA version for exactly the same price. I take it that the 3.5 MOA version is better? Given that they are the same price, is there any advantage to the 7.0 MOA version? If not, why would anyone ever buy the 7.0 MOA version?
The purpose for the gun will be competitive use. Steel Challenge, USPSA, 3-Gun etc...
