    Re: The mil as a unit of angle.

    Hello to George and the group, re: Mil.

    Mil in this case is a milli-radian, where a radian is 180 degrees/Pi, or a little over 57 degrees. Rather than personally wander around, I recommend theses URL's as starters: 

    http://www.boomershoot.org/general/mils.htm

    http://www.snipercountry.com/mil-moa.html

    Besides the unfamiliarity for many people of the use of the mil, there are slightly different mil values at work, as I found out after recently after purchasing a peep-sight alidade on EBAY. (Checking whether the graduations are in standard or military mils) Hope the websites are a step towards clarification; they helped me. But I'm still looking & learning when I have time.

    Marvin
