This is correct....

Rails (to my knowledge) are only measured in MOA - Minure Of Angle, and not Milliradians.

This is unlikely, but they could have been referring to the "MIL-Standard 1913 picatinny style rail" and shortened it by calling it a Mil rail. Doubtful, but a possibility.

Weather is about 75 outside right now.

I hunt in a small hunting club with about 10 other folks (+/- 2,000 acres to hunt), so my hunts are planned for every weekend from November to the end of January.

The fall colors are starting to come on a little bit, not much yet...Give it another month or 2 and they'll be full-fledge.
