      I'm not sure of the actual name for it, but they have a bunch of "grid" style scopes now, which essentially let you do the math and place the appropriate grid over the target and shoot. Pretty nuts (and looks confusing as hell). They used them frequently in the Magpul precision rifle dvds. Confuuuuuuusing.

      I'm mainly interested in this one. It looks like it is for both bullet drop and windage.

      That's for the guy that scoffs at anything less than match grade ammo and brings a logbook, pen, and calculator to the shooting range.

      I respect the capability of shooters like that, but the Magpul precision rifle DVD set was the only one I watched said "f_ck that" and sold it. I have zero interest in any of that style of shooting. I understand it's an art and science, and I appreciate it.

      Just zeroooooo interest. To me it's the equivalent of drag racing in motorsports. An exercise in technical precision and manufacturing excellence...but boring as sh_t.

      It looks like it would be easier to gauge for windage when having to compensate for bullet drop, rather than having the target out in no-mans-land in the scope.

      I stopped by a gun shop on the way home today and asked a couple employees there. It's called a H-58 reticle.

      I guess it basically does the same thing as the elevation and windage adjustment knobs.

      That's not an H58 reticle, it's a Nightforce Velocity reticle. Guess how I could tell.

      IIRC, the Velocity reticle is a MOA BDC reticle.

      This is a Horus H58 reticle:


      Horus reticles are dumb, btw.

      So it is not H58 reticle it is Horus H58 reticle, sounds the same.
