Mil dot is the one for $429 little screwy having mil dot retical and MOA knobs but I shoot so much with other guys and we all have different knobs and scopes that I'm getting pretty good at swapping back and fourth it's not that important to me anymore that they match. Speaking of swapping back and fourth anybody know of a good mil-moa-inch-yd-meter printable PDF file. The Mildot Master is very good but at $30 it's not something I can laminate and hand out to new shooters when they come to the 1000yd range we have set up.

Edit: I bought a Mill dot on Thursday, looks like they're sold out now. The BDC is still available

Theirs something not right with this table. I use moa all the time but I'm pretty sure 1 moa isn't 3.6 mills.

Could be, I don't use mildot, got the info from :  this paper.
Paper definetly says @100 yards MOA =1" and Mil-Dot = 3.6"
Here's another source Trijicon
You guys that use Mil-Dot should chime in here....

Pretty sure  MOA and MIL columns are both in inches 100yds =99m=1” for 1MOA = 3.6” for 1MIL

Bob that is correct. I was miss reading it. I thought it was saying one minute equaled 3.6 mills. My bad

The table is showing how many inches one mill is at a 100 yards. I couldn't see the inch Mark's by the mills at the top.

Conversion of yds to meters is off. 100yds is not 99meters, it's 91.47 meters. I put the 6.5x20x44 on my T/C and have basically no complaints. Only thing I need to remember is to set it to 14x for ranging, and not 20x.

Westie, you're right, I double clicked the 9 in 0.9144 - thanks.
Updated the chart above and made the units more clear..

Not a problem. Hate to tell what I paid for mine, mil-dot version. Was on sale at sportsman's warehouse late last summer + $30 coupon.

I have one of the 6.5-20x50's with a  BDS reticle on my Savage 110. It's a fantastic scope, but a little too much on the low magnification end for woodlot whitetails. It's really nice at the range though.
