Okay, lets keep it going, how many milradians (mils) in a circle?

Answer for US military mils, former Soviet mils and the mathematically correct number.

1 degree = 0.0174532925 radian
* 360 = 6.2831853 radians

*1000 =

6,283.18531 mil in 360 degrees

That's the mathetically correct answer. The whole 2 x pi x R is an easier way to get there. What about the two military usages?

Doesn't a US mildot represent 1MOA at 100 yards? So that'd be 21600 at 100 yards.
