You are correct, sir! (Sorry, I liked Phil Hartman.) Don't get caught in the trap of mixing imperial and metric systems as both work well. Depends what you are used to and perform best with. We are in the tall grass.

How do you make the target wait around for you to figure the correction on your app?

I use a Sig2400BDS linked to my Kestrel 5700. When I range, I get the scope offset in mils or MOA in the display along with the adjusted distance due to angle. Then you either use the reticle or click away. It's quick. Point noted however, the darn animals never stand still!

I was referring to a miss correction. Geez....Do you people even read these threads before you post?

I'm out.

I love applying subtension calcs for different applications, like attempting to calculate a target size at distance, or range to a target, or a subtension even from a known target size at a known distance. Understanding the "mil-ranging equations" back and forth and their adaptability to any unit of subtension is often quite helpful. Recently I was using a MOA calc for downrange zeroing calcs using iron sights. The number 3438 kept coming up, which looked familiar and my experience with the numbers made me finally realize that since there are 3.438 MOA in a mil, then the equation could be also calcd. using mils, and as it turns out that was correct assumption. Fun stuff IMO!

One time I was helping to teach a class at a shoot. I was showing a guy how to calc the range to a target using a ballistic reticle. The yardage was off a bit to the 500-yd target. So I thought I was miscalcing something when I picked up my laser and sure enough the target was not actually set at 500 yds., and my calcs were correct. That was fun. Lots of applications for subtension from reticles to iron sights to even archery sight pins--it's all fun if you can get into it.

I seem to do a lot of that myself. And again and again and again

Well...i went out shooting long a while ago....no spotter...
Just couldn't adjust for windage as much as app was saying...til I grabbed my older rifle...ol'trusty...
I had 20" of wind to left....once I figured it out...i was happy...
I shot a lot that day....

I really don't see the confusion but in my defense I did spend several years in artillery and when we had to "lay the guns or battery" meaning to aim all artillery pieces towards the target we did use mils. The confusion comes in trying to convert everything back to what your brain can handle. Don't convert just take it at face values for what it is. If you need to adjust 2moa adjust 2 moa, if you need to adjust two mils adjust two mils. The scope has already made the conversions for you.
And then there's the difference between "map" mils and "shooter" mils. Kinda like the diff between "shooter" moa (which isn't) and "real" moa.
