How many inches is 1 mrad?
There are 6.283 radians in a circle and 1000 milliradians in a radian for a total of 6283 milliradians (mrads) in a circle. An mrad will subtend 3.6 inches at a distance of 100 yards. Most riflescopes using mrad adjustments will use .1 mrad clicks which subtend .36 inches at 100 yards.
A radian is the angle subtended at the center of a circle by an arc that is equal in length to the radius of the circle. There are 6.283 radians in all circles and 1,000 milliradians in each radian. This calculates to a total of 6,283 milliradians in a circle.
- A minute of arc, arcminute (arcmin), arc minute, or minute arc is a unit of angular measurement equal to 160 of one degree. Since one degree is 1360 of a turn (or complete rotation), one minute of arc is 121600 of a turn.
- To put this in perspective, the full moon viewed from Earth is about ?1⁄2 degree, or 30 arc minutes (or 1800 arc-seconds). The Moon's motion across the sky can be measured in angular size: approximately 15 degrees every hour, or 15 arc-seconds per second.
- Earth Makes Star Positions Change. As the planet rotates, the moon and stars appear to move across the sky just the way the sun does during the day. The Earth also revolves around the sun, causing different parts of the galaxy to appear during different points in the Earth's orbit.
The SPACE FROM CENTER-DOT TO CENTER- DOT is one mil, which is an angular measurement that widens with distance. One mil at 100 yards equals 3.6 inches, and by the time the distance is 1000 yards, that same one mil will have widened by ten times to 36 inches.
- 20 clicks. 1 MOA increment at 200 yards is 2″. 5 of those 2″ increments fit into the 10″ of adjustment needed, so a 5 MOA adjustment is needed. 4 clicks on the scope equal 1 MOA. So, if every 4 clicks equals 1 MOA, you will need 5 of those 4 click adjustments, or 20 clicks total.
- In turn, each one of those 360 degrees can be further divided into 60 minutes, each of which is 1/60th of one degree. The minute of angle becomes a very handy measurement for rifle shooters because 1 MOA very closely matches 1” at a distance of 100 yards. (It's 1.047” at 100 yards if you want to be precise.)
- A radian is the angle subtended at the center of a circle by an arc that is equal in length to the radius of the circle. There are 6.283 radians in all circles and 1,000 milliradians in each radian. This calculates to a total of 6,283 milliradians in a circle.
Lamination film is measured in mil thicknesses. One mil is equal to .001” or 1/1000ths of an inch (a mil is not the same as a millimeter). Hence, a lamination film measuring 1.5mil would be .0015” thick. Likewise, a film measuring 10mil would be .010” thick.
- The most common thickness is probably 60 mils. (A mil is a unit of measure where 1-mil is equal to 0.001 inches. So, a 45-mil roofing membrane is actually 0.045 inches thick; whereas a 60-mil membrane is 0.06 inches thick, and so on.)

Micrometers (um) Millimeters (mm) Mils (Thousandths) 635.0 0.635 25 inches = mm / 25.4 mm = Inches * 25.4 mils = microns / 25.4 microns = mils * 25.4 0.001 inch = 1 mils = 10 “tenths” = 1,000 microinches
- SOLUTION: A nickel is approximately 2 mm thick and a dime is approximately 1 mm thick. Which of the following stacks has the most value: a stack of nickels 150 mm high or a stack of dimes 50. Question 665348: A nickel is approximately 2 mm thick and a dime is approximately 1 mm thick.
