Yes I know.

1/1000

It is a yard at 1000 yards out. It is an inch at 1000 inches out, it is a rod at 1000 rods out. Doesn't matter the system of measure, it's a ratio.

At 500 yards out, its half a yard, at 100 yards out its 1/10 yard, ect.

Something else I didn’t know. Your sig line is actually a link to your website. I didn’t know you had one. Apparently it’s been there a while and I just accidentally clicked on it. I would have checked it out long ago out of curiosity had I known.

I was talking about the ABC in the diagram. I knew a 1/10 was .36” at 100 yards. It just never occurred to me why.

I wonder how many use a Mil-dot scope for what it's really good at.
