Mil-Dot Crosshair with

Calculating distance using Mil Dots

Aim your rifle scope at a target with a known height in meters (one meter is just over three feet) at the distance you are trying to estimate.

Align the scope’s horizontal crosshair with the bottom of your target and count the number of mil-dots to the top of your target. If the top of your target falls between mil-dots, estimate the percentage of interval (between mil-dots) used. For example, if the top of your target is halfway between two mil-dots the percentage would be .5.

Divide the target height (in meters) by the mil-dot count and multiply your answer by 1, 000, giving you the range to target in meters. For instance, if your target is three meters high and the mil-dot count is 2.5, then your equation would be: 3 ÷ 2.5 = 1.2 followed by 1.2 x 1000 = 1, 200. The range to target is 1, 200 meters.
