## How to Convert Mils (NATO) to Milliradians

Convert mils (NATO) to milliradians with this simple formula:

Converting a mil angle measurement to a milliradian measurement involves multiplying the angle by the conversion ratio to find the result. One mil is equal to 0.981748 milliradians, so to convert simply multiply by 0.981748.

**For example:**

Mils (NATO) and milliradians are both units used to measure angle.

Mils (NATO) are an angle measurement and can be abbreviated as *mil*, for example 1 mil.
Milliradians are an angle measurement and can be abbreviated as *mrad*, for example 1 mrad.

A mil, short for milliradian, is equal to 1/6,400 of a circle. The mil used by the US military and NATO forces is slightly different than the true value of a milliradian, which is equal to 1/6,283 of a circle.

During World War I the US adopted what is now the NATO mil to replace degrees and minutes for use in artillery sights. They opted to round mils to 6,400 per circle for simplicity at the time. Today, the mil is commonly used to measure adjustment of sights and scopes of firearms.

There is rightfully much confusion as a result of the mil adopted by the US military and NATO being slightly different than the milliradian.

A milliradian is equal to 1/1,000 of a radian. One degree is equal to 0.0573 mrad and there are 6,283 mrad in a full revolution/circle. The milliradian is also a commonly used unit in mathematics.
