What are the distance numbers under a plane when the "labels" setting is turned on?

For example, the distance to a plane is 1.03 and then it is .53. --> Is this in meters, or feet? Is the 1.03 1003 or 103 feet? is .53 530 feet?

Basically I am trying to use the label as a reference when setting my gun convergence.

That would be meters.

If you think about how the English system works, you couldn't have the ranges going from 1 (meaning one mile) to .9 (meaning .9 miles) and still have the range system make sense in your example, because in your example, .9 would be 900 feet. 900 feet is not .9 miles. (a mile is 5280 feet)

But none of that matters. The system is true to itself and does not use two different systems, one for ranging, and one for convergence. It could be meters, kilosmarkts, megasmoots, or whatever. Just ignore the name "meters" and you can use the number that is reported as the distance to target to calibrate your convergence.

Actually it's Kilometers, not meters. For example, 1.3 would be 1.3 Kilometers, or .56 would be 56 hundredths of a KM, or 560 meters.

It's in hundreds of meters.
So 0.53 = 530 meters
0.20 = 200 meters
0.05 = 50 meters

well yes, 1 would be one kilometer. I'm talking about convergeance and I didn't dream he'd be setting that to 1000 meters, so I used "meters". You are of course right.
