Hello,
I have a pretty weird question, but I’ll go ahead and post it. Let’s say that 1mil = 3.6 inches at 100 yards. How much would 1mil be at 67 yards? How do you work that out?
I would do the following thing: 100/67=1.49. and then divide 3.6 by 1.49, but that looks horrible.
Thank you. It’s a bad question, I know.Hello, I have a pretty weird question, but I'll go ahead and post it. Let's say that 1mil = 3.6 inches at 100 yards. How much would 1mil be at 67 yards?

Move the decimal three places and you have 3.6″ At your range of 67 yards, multiply by 36 gives you the range in inches = 2412 inches. Therefore, one mill is 2.412 inches.
It is a lot easier start using meters for your ranges instead when using mils. 100 meters works out to 100 mm or 10 Cm. Your 61 meters (67 yards rounded) is 61mm or 6.1 cm.

Deleted AccountThanks Irons. That’s a very smart and useful formula. +1 for you!

Imperial units are inferior units. LOLI_Like_Irons It is a lot easier start using meters for your ranges instead when using mils. 100 meters works out to 100 mm or 10 Cm. Your 61 meters (67 yards rounded) is 61mm or 6.1 cm.

Not really.
If we are talking of METRIC mildots, it has been designed around the metric system, so fits better with metric than imperial.
Like in every area of measurement we have to be careful to define the units… do you know the ‘mil’ unit of the particular scope? Happily at the short distance air guns are used at the difference is so small as not to make a significant difference.
