Does anyone know of any books, videos, interactive programs...etc that are effective at teaching someone how to use a mil-dot who hasn't a clue about how it works?

Thank You
Hans

Ultimate Sniper book, mil-dot master tool from Brownells or Dillon Precision. You'll be an expert if you have both.

Isn't it just (height in yard/height in mildots) X 1000 = range in yards ?????

That sounds about right...that is, if u want to calculate the size of your targets in yards. I like inches to yards, so i use this equation (the most basic reticle-rangefinding equation)--

tgt. size (") x range of reticle subtension measurement (usually 100 yds.) / reticle subtension (") / quantity of subtension tgt. occupies (decimal equivalent) = range (yds.)

looks complicated, but super simple to apply...AND WAY MORE IMPORTANTLY CAN BE USED WITH ANY MULTI-STADIA RETICLE FROM SIMPLE PLEX TO BALLISTIC PLEX).

Suppose u have a 10" tgt. that occupies 1.5 mil--
10 x 100 / 3.6 / 1.5 = 185

Suppose u're after an antelope buck with a Leupold 3.5-10x VX-3. Look at pg. 100 of '09 catalog and u'll see that at 10x the plex post tip to plex post tip = 5.4 inch per hundred yds. (IPHY). You forgot the laser at the truck, and a big old buck is at an unknown distance from you. U go prone and see he occupies ~0.9 of the measurement above, back to brisket. Back to brisket bucks usually go 15", so--

15 x 100 / 5.4 / 0.9= 310 yds.

See www.ottllc.com/specialtypistols/sp20.pdf Item C) Reticle Rangefinding for more.
