What is 1/10 MIL on a scope?

Milliradian scopes are often adjustable by 1/10th (0.1) mil increments. At 100 yards a 0.1 mil click is 0.36 inch and a full mil is 3.6 inches (Practically speaking 1⁄10 of a mil equals 1 centimeter at 100 meters).

The other is that Mil is for more comfortable hunters with centimeters and meters. While both make a ton of sense and make things easier they are not the end-all-be-all of shooting.14-Apr-2022

Which is easier MOA or MIL?

Common practice tells us that MOA is much easier for those familiar with the U.S. measuring system because it works cohesively with inches and yards.
