VECTOR X etched reticle DMR

RETICLEs by FinnAccuracy

An etched reticle is an invaluable feature in a rangefinding binocular when calling hits at long distances. As a manufacturer of electro-optical devices for military applications, having an etched reticle implemented in the VECTOR X is part of our DNA. For the VECTOR X, two types of MRAD-based reticles are available. They are designed by FinnAccuracy, renowned for their MSR series of reticles available for many top-tier riflescopes.

The choice between these reticles depends on your main use case and whether you plan to use your VECTOR X with the optionally available Range Enhancers. Both reticles feature an etched aiming mark and the upper half of the field of view is unobstructed, which is especially important when glassing terrain.

DUAL Magnification RETICLE

The MRAD-based Dual Magnification Reticle (MSR-DMR) is specifically designed for use in the VECTOR X with installed optional Range Enhancers that increase its magnification by 40%. With the MSR-DMR the VECTOR X has a calibrated reticle for both magnification levels.

The MSR-DMR consists of two reticle segments that are separated by the display in between. This distinct separation makes it easy and intuitive for users to choose the correct reticle segment when calling hits or making calculations.

The right reticle segment of the MSR-DMR is to be used when the Range Enhancers are installed on the VECTOR X. This segment takes into account the increased magnification provided by the Range Enhancers, allowing for accurate range estimation, holdovers, or any other calculations required.

The left reticle segment is designed for use with the base magnification of the VECTOR X when the Range Enhancers are not installed.

By incorporating the MSR-DMR into the VECTOR X, users can seamlessly switch between the two reticle segments based on whether they have the Range Enhancers installed or not. This ensures optimal performance and accuracy in various shooting scenarios.

SIngle Magnification RETICLE

The Single Magnification Reticle (MSR-SMR) of the VECTOR X is also MRAD-based. It caters specifically to users who prefer a clean and simplistic L-reticle design. Opting for the MSR-SMR does not restrict the use of the optional Range Enhancers. However, it is important to note that the hashmarks of the MSR-SMR are not magnified by the Range Enhancers when installed. Users should keep this in mind when using the MSR-SMR for calling hits when the Range Enhancers are installed on their VECTOR X.
