3.438 is an "angular" measurement and not a "length" measurement
 
1 mil = 3.438 "moa" at 100 yards and each moa  = 1.047 inches. i.e.
1.047 inches x 3.438 moa = 3.6 inches
 
1 mil = 3.6 "actual" inches at 100 yards
 
or you can think of it as 1 mil = 3.6 "shooters" moa  at 100 yards. (shooters moa is 1 inch at 100 yards)
 
Are you confused yet?
 
See my mil paper at (you cannot hot link this so you have to cut and paste)

Thanks for the info in  my confussion between minutes of angle & milliradians. I also found info through the mildot.com link now if I can get one of the kids to show me how to cut & paste #*!!~#* computers

I also  like to ply around with mil-dots for reticle-rangefinding, and downrange zeroing. I've read a lot of info on the mil-dots but, IMO the most significant aspect of the system is seldom discussed, and that is it's adaptability to different subtensions. There are a lot of guys that think they need to adjust the scope to the MD calibrated power of 14 to use it to rangefind. This is not necessary really. If u adjust this particluar scope to 21X the new subtension then becomes 2.4 inch per hundred yd. (IPHY) instead of the std. milliradian to use in the abovementioned formulas. instead of the 27.8 subtensions factor noted above the new factor is 100/2.4 = 41.7 Now just apply the reticle for ranging exactly as before using the new factor. This has a huge amount of significance as it now allows the shooter/user to adapt the mil-dot mil-ranging formula with any reticle out there really, and is particularly useful with std. plex reticles, and the Nikon BDC as well. Just punch in any reticle subtension u wish with a bunch of possible permutations. Understanding this concept opens a world of flexibility (and fun) regarding reticle-rangefinding that few ever seem to research.

Sorry, couldn't edit the above post, the optic i was talking about was the Bushnell 3200 7-21X.

BTW, Bags-- that's the best writeup i've ever seen regarding the mil-dot rangefidning system. Always wanted to know how the algebraic formula derived from the trig. Thks. sir!!
