- Traditional crosshair design
- Half and full MRAD subtentions on the crosshairs allow accurate holdover for both wind and elevation
- Lots of open glass to easily spot your trace and fall of shot
- Bold stadia lines mean the reticle stands out even against low contrast backgrounds
- Illumination is restricted to only the center of the crosshairs
The MRAD reticle is a versatile and innovative advancement in optical sighting systems. This reticle is etched and does not rely on electrical power, ensuring its continuous functionality as long as the optical integrity of the sighting system is maintained.
Designed with versatility in mind, the MRAD reticle is particularly well-suited for first focal plane (FFP) optical sights. FFP reticles maintain angular scaling at any magnification level but can become less conspicuous at lower magnifications. However, the MRAD reticle stands out even at low magnification settings. Its angularly intersecting geometry naturally guides the eye to the center, making it highly effective for quick target acquisition.
At longer ranges and higher magnifications, the reticle's features do not interfere with fine aiming elements. Instead, they form a surrounding geometry that can be used to encircle and engage poorly defined targets in challenging conditions, similar to the effectiveness of a circular peep sight.
The MRAD reticle serves as a versatile solution for sighting systems required to perform effectively at short, medium, and long ranges. This innovative reticle is exclusive to Armament Technology Incorporated and is complemented by round-specific ballistic trajectory data, meticulously derived through scientifically controlled live fire trials.
Key features of the MRAD reticle include:
- Bullet-shaped elements.
- Graduated fine crosshair with a central floating cross.
- Ballistically corrected holdover hashmarks.
- Vertical Subtention Optical Rangefinder (VSOR).
- Wind hold-off reference dots.
At close quarters (50 meters and closer), the MRAD reticle provides a highly prominent aiming point that stands out against the target. In these scenarios, illumination can further enhance precision by highlighting the thin stadia and central cross.
At 25 meters, the MRAD reticle collaborates with the thick horizontal stadia to frame the target and naturally guide the shooter's focus to the center. The LED illumination of the thin horizontal and vertical stadia, including the central cross, augments this feature's performance in low-light conditions, ensuring exceptional accuracy and target acquisition capabilities.
