MILS vs MOA – The Scope’s Unit Of Measurement And How It Effects You
When buying a riflescope you may have to decide if you want the scope’s adjustments and reticle to calibrated in MOA which stands for Minute of Angle, or MILs, which stands for Milliradians. MOA and MILs are units of measurement that your scope uses to measure and adjust your point of impact. But what are they? They are both angular measurements. In this short video we’ll dust off some basic trigonometry to explain how these are used so you can make the choice that’s best for your particular need.
