1 Mil = 1 meter at 1000 meters, There are 3.375 MOA in 1 MIL. there are 21,600 MOA in 360 degrees. A mil = 1/6400 of a circle (There are 6400 mils in 360 degrees)

Re: A few questions.

Little 1 MILlradian = 3.6 in at 100 yards and 36 at 1000. It aint metric cause math is universal. The military uses something like 3283 mil per 360 degres. It will be different in meters cause there are 39.3701 inches per meter. The compass and Artillery guys use 6400 mils per 360 degrees. 1 MOA at 100m = .9573768. 1 mil at 100 m = 3.29 in or 8.3612736 cm at 100 m. 1 mil at 1000 m = 32.9184 in or .83612736 m or 83.612736 cm

Re: A few questions.

Sniper, why not go to a local range and see if there are any competative smallbore teams, especially 3p, its alot easier that way. The coaches there usually know what they're doing, and if you can get into a 3 position team you'd be pretty set. Now if you get serious about the sport, go out and get a job to pay for your rifle, ammo, sights(iron sights not scopes), and so on and so forth. Well thats my .02 cents, later.
P.S. Old Navy pays pretty good [img]images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

Re: A few questions.

You can start out with whatever you want; but the advice you have received on starting in .22 caliber small bore competition or air rifle competition is the best idea. LEARNING THE FUNDAMENTALS OF SHOOTING is what you need to do right now. then once you upgrade to any other rifle, the fundamentals will always be there!

Also, you need to change your "signature" on the bottom of your posts, SOLES should be SOULS. 10-4? Stay interested, READ, READ, READ, AND THEN READ SOME MORE. KNOWLEDGE IS KING. it will also help you be able to separate the bull shitters, from those who have been there and done it, ya know?!
