EZ Tap Illumination 36 colour illuminated UMOA Reticle
The MOA (UMOA) reticle features hash marks at MOA increments for precise bullet drop and wind drift compensation, as well as, range estimation.
At 10X magnification at 100 yards, the reticle provides a 4 MOA (from end to end) center cross and equally distanced hash marks at 2 MOA increments all the way up to 50 MOA for holdover, 20 MOA for hold under, and 30 MOA on each side for wind drift.
The center cross can be illuminated to assist aiming under different light conditions.
Innovative EZ-tap® illumination enhancing (IE®) system with red/green dual-color and 36 multi-color mode to accommodate all weather/light conditions.
Most user friendly low profile illumination system on the ocular tube for red, green or black reticle, soft and ergonomically designed rubber pads for user to easily tap to the desired level of brightness.
Push both buttons to and hold to enter full color reticle mode. Full color reticle mode consists of 36 different color options for optimal visibility in all environments.
High-tech memory feature to return to last color/brightness used, accommodates diverse weather/light conditions.
Glass-etched reticles are way superior to wire for several reasons, most notable is how much more crisp, fine and clean your view is when you look thorough the scope.
A glass etched reticle, also cannot be broken. Anyone who has shot enough has seen a wire reticle actually break within the reticle field. As the reticle design is etched into the reticle lens, it is static and cannot physically be broken.
Superior glass-etched reticles have the added benefit of zero internal light reflection which occurs to some extent in illuminated scopes with wire reticles.
This superior design requires an additional cost, but even if you don’t plan to use the illumination, the glass-etched reticle is a feature with value to the shooter.
Illumination comes into its own when shooting targets that are either naturally dark or made dark by light conditions such as shadow, dawn dusk, very bright light or night shooting with lamps or night vision kit.
Without Illumination a black reticle can be very hard to make out against the target.
Illumination fixes this problem and gives immediate contrast. Adjust intensity according to the light conditions.
Easy Adjust Lock and Reset Windage and Elevation Turrets:
Premium low top zero lockable and resettable target turrets with precise 1/4 MOA per click adjustment
Windage/elevation target turrets with locking ring to lock zero and zero-resetting function to align marking after zeroing your scope.
Parallax effect is the term that describes the difference in angles between objects that are seen up close and those seen far away. When you look at telephone poles passing by on the side of the road, those closest to your car seem to pass very fast, while the ones far away seem to go very slow. That difference is due to the parallax effect.
The reticle in your scope is like a telephone pole that's very close. If you move your head on the stock while watching the target through the scope the reticle may seem to move, wobble or blur against the target. That affects where you perceive the aim point to be, and that affects your accuracy. Parallax focus correction adjustment reduces this phenomenon to the greatest extent possible.
Parallax focus correction therefore is a must for anyone attempting to use either a high magnification scope, shooting drastically different yardages with the same scope or anyone attempting to shoot at extremely close ranges or extremely long ranges. Especially so if it is a combination of these factors.
This scope features Parallax focus correction by way of the side turret which has a range of adjustment settings from 10 yards upwards.
Large sidewheels (60, 80, 100mm) not included but in our shop and can be added on. If you cannot find it just ask us.

UMOA RETICLE i more detail
The MOA (UMOA) reticle features hash marks at MOA increments for precise bullet drop and wind drift compensation, as well as, range estimation. At 10X magnification at 100 yards, the reticle provides a 4 MOA (from end to end) center cross and equally distanced hash marks at 2 MOA increments all the way up to 50 MOA for holdover, 20 MOA for hold under, and 30 MOA on each side for wind drift. The center cross can be illuminated to assist aiming under different light conditions.
UMOA Reticle Range Estimating:
1) MOA is half of the distance between the centers of one hash mark to that of the hash mark next to it.
2) Range estimating requires common knowledge of your target’s actual width and or height.
3) Set your scope at 10X magnification or the highest power of your particular scope should your highest power be below or above 10X magnification. View the target through the scope. Estimate the height or width of the target in MOA by determining how many hash marks the target spans.
4) Once the target’s height or width has been measured in MOA, use the following formula to estimate the distance to the target. An example scenario is provided to you below for reference.
UMOA Range Estimating Example:
The length of an animal from shoulder to tail is 40 inches (1.016 meters). We see through the scope at 9X magnification that the animal spans 20 MOA. The distance to the animal can be derived using the formula below.
