Mil-Dot scope reticle

With the Mil-Dot reticle in the scope you are able to measure the distance to the object (target) by a simple formula:
Object height x 1000 divided by mils = distance to object
Like the example in the picture we assume a person is 180cm in height and you measure 2.5 mils, the distance is 1.8 x 1000 / 2.5 = 720 meters.
