Designed with customer feedback, the Forceplex reticle has bold lines to draw your eye to center, and remain visible to the last bit of legal lighting. The thin center cross hair allows for exact bullet placement. This simple design provides for a clean field of view to see as much as possible in the scope.
IHR stands for International Hunting Reticle, with good reason. It’s uncluttered and lightning fast, equally effective on dangerous game in tight quarters and at longer ranges on smaller targets. A floating illuminated center crosshair provides simple hold off capability. 3, 6 and 9 o’clock posts bring the eye quickly to your target.

With 1 MOA elevation and windage markings, .125 MOA lines, more accurate range finding and hold-offs are possible on smaller targets at longer ranges. Combined with a floating center crosshair, this makes for a reticle extremely fast and easy to use in the field. This reticle features center illumination only, and a 20 MOA scale below center.
