Like you stated it is an angular measurment, the departure from it's start increases, just like MOA. So at 200m 1.0 MIL equals 20cm, 30cm at 300m etc. A 0.1mil click would be 1cm, 2cm, 3cm etc.
Well, maybe I overreacted with "entirely incorrect", I just get tired of seeing the mil system as being stated as a metric measurement, when it's not. It can be used with either yards or meters. Or cubits, light years, whatever radial distance you use to measure with, there it is... 1/1000th of that radial distance. I range in yards, so I convert my target size to yards.
