    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.
