mil value for super sniper scope?

Does someone know the mil value for the 10X super sniper scopes? 3.44 or 3.6?
I'm trying to work a ballistics program onto my PC and also need the correct measurement for my scope height. Is this taken from bottom of the scope base to dead center of scope glass?
Thanks for the help.

if you are trying to find you scope height. take out your bolt and put your bore guild in than take you micrometer and measure the distance from the top of your scope to the bottom of your bore guild. then measure the scope and then measure the bore guild. add these 2 numbers together and divide in half. then subtract from original number this is your scope height. should be roughly between 1.5 and 2 inches

Scope height:

Lets see if I can recall this correctly

Distance from bottom of barrel to top of objective Minus half the diameter of the objective minus half the diameter of the barrel where the bottom to top measurement equals scope height.

This is the closest method I've used but is only close if tapered base or rings are used. If they are used then the number is close and the ballistic program may be used to fudge in the correct number.

The size of the dots are 0.2 mils on that scope....

Don`t worry abt it. I took the datd from the Sierra Loading manual that was figured for 2 in. over bore center and used that with my .22-6mm and an 8.5 x 25 Leupold that was well over the the 2 in. When field tested I has to raise the setting 1/2 moa at 600 yrds. to exactly on. That`s close enough for a good starting point for your field testing. You do field test your data don`t you?
