Combines parallax compensation, illuminated reticle control and 1/4” MOA clicks in a highly ergonomic design, with controls clearly separated for safe, quick handling in high-stress situations.
The P-3 Mil-dot Reticle was developed by the U.S. Marine Corps in the late 1970s as an aid for the Marine sniper in estimating distances. It has since become the military standard for range estimating within all branches of the service.
The name “mil-dot” comes from the term “millradian,” and the dot that is spaced in 1 mil increments on the crosshairs. By using the mil formula, a table can be generated based upon the size of the object being range-estimated. This table is included with the scope. The object viewed is bracketed between the dots, and by consulting the table the distance can be estimated.
