mm to inches please help

I have scope which I kinda regret buying the adjustments on the scope are 10mm at 100m. This is fine but all the data/load programes are in MOA or inches at 100yards. Can anyone convert 10mm at 100m into either MOA or 1/4,1/8 of an inch at 100yards?? or into a MIl equvaliant? thanks if anyone can help

    Are you sure your scope clicks aren't in Mils not milimeters?

    What you're talking about is a scope in 0.1 mil clicks. All the programs I use, including Shooter for Android, adjust in 0.1 mil clicks for me. The unit is easier for me to use, anyway. No need to think in meters; just use the scope's reticle to measure. The target I use is half a yard in size, so I get the range in yards by measuring the target in mils and multiply by 500. Boom, range in seconds.

    Hi thanks alot for the help. Im going to try avoid using the turrets and stick to the mildot reticle. one mil = 1meter at 1000meters. so one mil=10cm at 100meters.
    so my scopes adjustments are 10mm or 1cm which is 0.1mil. that makes sense thanks alot RFtinkerer
