Minute of Angle (MOA)

A full circle is divided into 360 degrees of arc, and each degree is divided into 60 minutes of arc. There are 21,600 minutes of arc (angle) in a full circle.

One minute of angle (MOA) is an angle which equals 1.047" at 100 yards and 10.47" at 1000 yards.﻿

Mils

1 radian of a circle equals 2 Pi, or 6.2832 parts of a circle. A MIL (Milliradian) is 1/1000th of a radian.

A full circle is divided into 360 degrees of arc, or 6283.2 MILS. There are 17.45 MILS in one degree and 60 minutes in one degree.

1 MIL = 3.438 MOA (60/17.45 = 3.438).

1 MIL equals 3.6" at 100 yards and 36" at 1000 yards.

1 MIL also equals 10 cm at 100 Meters, and 100 cm (1 Meter) at 1000 meters.﻿
