Not irrelevant but @ (each click) adjusts 1000y an moa scope adjust the bullet impact 2.5 " so a mil scope is 100mm or 4" right ?? I use sfp for all .

Err, no not quite

2.5" is correct for 0.25moa clicks (approx)

1000yds = one radius so 1 MilRad is 1000/1000 = 1yd or 36" :  1/10 Mil click is 3.6"

1/4 MOA  /1 click at 1000 = 2.63”

mrad / 1 mill at 1000 = 3.6” 

Not quite, 1/10th mil = 3.6"

You know what I mean 🤔

well yes, I guessed,  but it might confuse referring to a click as a mil?

That’s a fair point 👍 

I only use mrad so I sort of take it for granted .

So to sum up. If the distance to the target is know. And your not using the scope to range the target. It doesn’t matter what system you are using?

 

👍 nope .

its just a matter of choice really , if your shooting a known distance. If your shooting benchrest then that’s a different matter . 

Mrad for me personally comes into its own if targets at different distances ( steel plates ) or hunting / varmint shooting , I just find it easier  to work with . And with matched turrets and reticule I’m able to do calculations and adjustments in my head very quickly .

It’s a target shooting scenario I’m thinking. Bench/prone/comp. Best to chose what the majority is using  along with what the rings on the targets are measured in. Inches. Or  cm.

Why does it get the answer in inches if Mrad is in cm?

I refer you to earlier posts in this thread.  Milrads are not metric or imperial, it's just convenient to do the maths in multiples of 10
