The Truth About Mil Dots
Yeah, that 1.25 (approximate) at 1000 yards would really make it suck.

I don't know. But if I was told where to find it using mils I would need a calculator and a bottle of aspirin to find it.

Oh, THAT'S just great! As if it wasn't confusing enough ALREADY!!!


The next question is- how do you tell which MILS scale the scope uses?!

The Army uses a round dot and the USMC uses an oval dot.
