not sure the difference in 0.1 MRAD turret adjustments versus .25 MOA clicks, etc. Seems wih 0.1 it would take a whole lotta clicks to dial comeups.

0.1 mil is actually a coarser measurement than 0.25 moa. To get out to 1000 yards with a Sierra 175gr round, it's roughly 36 moa (144 clicks at 0.25 moa/click). The equivalent in mils is 10.5 (105 clicks at 0.1 mil/click).

The most important thing is that your reticle matches your knobs. So, if you have a mil-dot reticle (or any other based on mils), you typically want clicks measured in mils so you don't have to do conversions in your head.

So, if you take a shot, and find that you're off slightly, you can measure with the reticle (say, you're a half mil low), and dial up half a mil (5 clicks). If you're using 0.25 moa knobs, you have to convert the half mil to the equivalent in moa, then figure out how many 0.25 moa clicks it takes you to get there.

.1 MIL = .34 MOA or .36 inch so a little more than 1/3 of an inch.

So .3 MIL's will get you close to moving 1 inch at 100 yards.

105 clicks?! Wow...seems like that would take some time to dial.

Depends on the scope... Some knobs have 14 to 17 MIL's in one turn, my USO EREK knob has 9 MIL's in one turn. However if you have only 5 MIL's per rotation it'll take two plus full turns.

Plus, you don't have to count clicks. The knob is marked in full mils, so you just spin the dial until you hit 10, then go 5 more clicks (which is usually denoted by a slightly higher line between 10 and 11). So, while it sounds like a lot, it takes only a second or two to get there if you're doing it right...
