    Mil Dot yardage quick charts

    I am trying to pile in data for my field book so can someone take a look at the math and tell me if the yardages look good. I'm making an excel spread sheet with mil dot/ inches/ feet charts and this is the basic inches formula I used. I have the spread sheet done; however, I'm not able to paste a picture in this thread.

    The formula I'm using is Inches*27.8/ Mil dot measurment

    I know the .8 is rounded but I am just looking for a center mass chart.

    :P Thanks in advance for any replies.. :P

    That's the right formula for yards using target size in inches. I made my own quick reference chart and did every 2 inches to 40 inches as mine is used for competitions. Works very well.

    Here's all the formulas for you reference
    Height of Target (yards) x 1000 = Distance (yards)
    mils

    Height of Target (inches) x 27.78 = Distance (yards)
    mils

    Height of Target (inches) x 25.4 = Distance (meters)
    mils

    Height of Target (meters) x 1000 = Distance (meters)
    mils

    Height of Target (cm) x 10 = Distance (meters)
    mils

    Height of Target (inches) x 95.5 = Distance (yards)
    moa

    Height of Target (inches) x 87.32 = Distance (meters)
    moa

    Height of Target (meters) x 3437.75 = Distance (meters)
    moa

    Height of Target (cm) x 34.37 = Distance (meters)
    moa

    Height of Target (inches) x 100 = Distance (yards)
    s- moa

    Height of Target (inches) x 91.44 = Distance (meters)
    s- moa

    Height of Target (meters) x 3600 = Distance (meters)
    s- moa

    Height of Target (cm) x 36 = Distance (meters)
    s- moa

    a data book should be rifle specific.

    shoot YOUR rifle at each yard line and document its scope adjustments.

    you can even put these adjustments on a small card, laminate it and attach it to the stock for quick reference. wind charts also.

    I thought he was talking about a fast reference mil ranging chart which is generic and used with any rifle or shooter as it's for estimating range to target and not the rifle's data. Is that what you are looking to build Dtorion?

    For example (just a few lines)

    By Yards
    Inches
    Mils----3.0----4.5----6------9-------10------12------16-----18
    0.25---334---500----667--1001--1112---1334---1779---
    0.50---167---250----334---500----556-----667----890----1001
    0.75---111---167----222---334----371-----445----593---- 667
    1.00---83---- 125----667---250----278-----334---445-----500

    This is a crude example and is in Excel formatting on the real chart. You could be correct in your statement that it would be specific if your mildots are not standard Army mils IE USMC

    I have the mils every .25 up to 10 and the inches in increments up to 33 inches then at 36inches I go every 6 inches and include the "foot" measurement.

    Thanks for the formulas Rob. A couple of the guys in the unit looked at the grid and said, that’s why I have a laser. Maybe when I’m on target and there still trying to get a reading ops: they'll ask if they can have one too. :twisted:

    rob, I am going to ask an incredibly stupid question. How do you tell the targets height. (I.E. acquiring a target of height unknown) Any way to measure this by mil dots? Sorry, i am sort of new to this firing at unknown distance thing. always had a set distance !

    DTOrion a mil is a mil is a mil. If the reticle is in mils no matter what the shape then that chart will work. I can send you my chart and you can use it if you like. Drop me your e-mail. If i knew how to do screen shots i would do that but not that savy LOL

    Johnny not stupid at all. It's tough unless it's something of fairly common known proportions like a door, window, stop sign, car rim etc. They all might not be the same but close. You can use the size of stuff around the target also to try to figure it out. Not a miling example but when i was out at Chey Tac in Idaho their 2000 yard target got knocked down so we searched the landscape and found a cliff face with an almost perfectly square rock. We figured by the size of the small flowering plant next to it that it was about 20" square as we had the same plants growing around us. You can do a similar thing when miling. Luckily at matches they usually give you the size of the steel you will be miling and shooting at.
