I always use: .50 cal. Ma Deuce = 12.7mikemike easy to remember (for me, at least) (.5 "= 12.7mm, double for inch= 25.4mm)
Cheers Previous Message : 1/700 means: : 1 miilimeter = 700 millimeters : 1 centimeter = 700 centimeters : 1 meter = 700 meters : 1 inch = 700 inches : 1 foot = 700 feet : 1 mile = 700 miles : etc. : : As long as the units are the same, it : doesn't matter what they are; 1/700 is : 1/700. : : If conversion from English to metric is a : problem, most smartphones now include a : conversion utility. : : But if you can just remember that 1 inch = : 25.4 millimeters, you can easily convert : from metric (not "meteric") to : English and vice versa. :
