While the simple duplex reticle dominates the hunting scope market, there are advantages to opting for a more modern design. Factors like terrain and game animals can play a big part in the selection process. This post explores that.
The Vortex Optics Dead-Hold BDC reticle reminds me of a duplex reticle with extra flair. It’s a simple and functional reticle suitable for general purpose target shooting and hunting.
A deeper look at the Vortex Optics AR-BDC2 reticle found on their previous generation Strike Eagle LPVOs.
Short version: It’s simple. It’s functional. It works. I just wish it had a better manual.
A deeper look at the Vortex Optics EMR-9 (MRAD) reticle found on their Razor HD Gen III LPVOs. Short version: it’s my new favorite LPVO reticle.
A deeper look at the Vortex Optics AR-BDC3 reticle found on their Strike Eagle LPVOs. Short version: it’s a well designed and executed BDC reticle.
A few days ago, I wrote a post explaining why I don’t care for BDC style reticles. Figured I’d take the opposite approach and attempt to explain why I like Christmas tree reticles so much.
