But ranging goes something like this...

Height of target in inches x 27.8/Mils read = Distance to target in yards
Height of target in inches x 100 /MOA read = Distance to target in yards



Yes.

MOA is easy for me to remember.
1 MOA at 100yds = 1"
1 MOA at 300yds = 3"
1 MOA at 500yds = 5"
1 MOA at 1000yds = 1000"

It mostly comes down to preference or need. e.g. If you're in the millitary or LE, you might be required to use MIL.

Yep.

And, I was wondering how long it was going to take someone to comment.

The sad thing is that I've had similar brain farts in the field albeit not quite that drastic. And, it's real embarassing.

RSCOTT, do you happen to follow the Americans in the CHL down that way?

I'm a Rush fan.
