To range a target you need to know target size in width or height or mil size for  MILRAD usage.

?????????

Simply put, to find the range you need two bits of information to compare against a scaled base on your reticle!!!!

Width and height will give you range with a simple calculation
Mil size + Target size = distance to target.

So all you do is the following....

Target size x 27.778 = a number / mil reading in the reticule = Target distance. That's it.

Let's work on this. I have a 20" x 40" target.



















Now  we line up the target in the reticle to get the Milrad reading.















See the target on the right? Its 1.2 Mil tall and .6 Mil wide.

Height:
40 inches x 27.778 = 1111.12
1111.12 / 1.2 Mil = 925.933 or 926yds ;)

Width:
20 inches x 27.778 = 555.56
555.56 / .6 Mil = 925.933 or 926yds ;)
