Divide circumference by Pi to get diameter. If diameter is in inches, then multiply that by 64 to get ring gauge. A ring is 1/64" of the diameter so this should be correct.
You take the length of the cigar, devide it by two, then add three, if it is Tuesday and it's raining, I add another two, then I look what it says on the package for the ring gauge!

LOL That's funny. But the question is really about a cigar that you don't have any (packaging) info on. That's what I meant by "mystery cigar". Or maybe it's a cigar that you have limited info on and you're trying to figure out which vitola it is and you need to know the ring gauge to do that. And you are trying to figure out what the ring gauge is from scratch.
Personally I don't have a complete mystery cigar. I actually have some info on this cigar and I've narrowed it down to two vitolas. And I could simply ask the guy I got it from. But the question is more hypothetical. What if you have a box press or semi-box press with no band and no info, and you want to figure out the ring gauge by measuring. Sure, If it's yours and you don't care, smoke it and forget it. But my question remains. I want to know.

I tried the formula you suggested using pi, (and after measuring wrong and scratching my head for a while) I think I did it right (more or less)
2.5 divided by 3.14159 = 0.7957753876221913 multiplied by 64 = 50.92962480782024
rounded to 51 ring gauge.
Based on information that I could conclude from other sources
the vitola had to be either, 6 x 52 or 6 x 46.
So I conclude that it's gotta be the 6 x 52. Cool. Thanks

THAT is exactly why I teach Criminal Justice and not math! Besides, he did say if you use applie or pumpkin pi!

Yes, but that pi are round, not square! I've always had trouble with math. When I took math, they only had three numbers and I still struggled! Cool pie though!
