Telescopic sights in US service.

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Can anyone confirm whether the US military orders telescopic sights with:

    1) Adjustments in Mils
    2) Adjustments in Minutes of Angle
    3) Adjustments in Metres i.e Bullet Drop Compensating types.

    I have been assured by someone that the Mil-dot reticle scopes used on US sniper rifles have adjustments in minutes which seems absurd to me. Surely they would have adjustments in mils to match the reticle? Otherwise you have to multiply all your corrections by 3.59!

    Source information would be particularly helpful or first hand experience at least.
