A mil (one L) is a thousandth of an inch (.001).  If you multiply 500 x .001 you get .500 inch Or.  .5 inch or 1/2 inch

Thankyou, I was trying to convert mils into grams and then ounces. Your math confirmed what I thought wasn't right with mine and was able then to proceed and get my answer. Thanks again
