Scope Reticles or Crosshairs

By November 6, 2013

Follow me on:

Scopes for firearms can be quite different, but all true scopes have one thing in common: They have a reticle inside, which is used for aiming. Also called crosshairs (or just crosshair), some of these really do resemble crossed hairs - and others are much more complex. Here are some different scope reticles, ranging from the plain to the exotic, along with discussions of each and a recommendation of what I think is the best hunting reticle there is.
