Milliradian Dots Explained

Recommended Posts

Once upon a time I was an artillery surveyor. I never got an explanation of why there were 6400 mills in a circle, not 360 degrees or 2 pi radians. Had to just settle for "it's the Army way?" And then I learned that the Russkies have 6000 mills in their circles.

 

Google is a wonderful thing and when I found that it was all linked to mill-dots in scopes, it made sense finally.
