Mils vs MOA which one is right for you ? – Frank Galli – 03/17/2015 Both Mils and MOA are an Angle. They were intended to operate as angles and while all angles have linear equivalents, when it comes to shooting there is no reason to use the linear value. We have moved beyond needing to figure the straight line distance. They were always meant to work as an Angle, so we need to think in those terms.

Instructors would immediately start off a precision rifle class and tell you;

1 MOA = 1.047” @ 100 yards

2.094” @ 200 yards

5.235” @ 500 yards

8.376 “ @ 800 yards

Who cares, immediately this is confusing, it has a lot of decimal places and lot of odd numbers in there.

1/4 MOA vs 1/10 MIL

Most common adjustments found in the riflescopes are 1/4 MOA clicks and 1/10 MRAD or MIL.

1/4 MOA clicks is a finer measurement than 1/10 MIL or MRAD. Let’s have a look at the table below to know more about the finer adjustment:

Precision of 1 Click @ 100 Yards

MOA MeasurementMIL or MRAD Measurement
1 MOA = 1.0475 inches1 MRAD = 3.6 inches
¼ MOA = 0.26 inches1/10 MRAD = 0.36 inches

If adjustment precision of 1 click at 100 yards is considered, 1/4 MOA is found to be 0.1 inch finer than that of 1/10 MIL.

Precision of 1 Click @ 1,000 Yards

MOA MeasurementMIL or MRAD Measurement
1 MOA = 10.475 inches1 MRAD= 36 inches
¼ MOA = 2.3 inches1/10 MRAD = 3.6 inches

If adjustment precision of 1 click at 1,000 yards is considered, 1/4 MOA is found to be 1 inch finer than that of 1/10 MIL.

It must be said here that there are only a handful of top shooters in the world who would notice such finer difference. Most shooters will agree that both 1/4 MOA clicks and 1/10 MIL riflescopes revolve around the sweet spot.
