Hey guys,

Been lurking for a while, but joined up and have a question.

Looking to get a scope with a Horus H-25 reticle.  However, very few options are available.  I could (well not really don't have the money) spend MEGA bucks on a USO or S&B to get the H-25.  Leupold no longer has the reticle installed in their scopes, but, according to Horus, they will start back soon.  What I'm wondering is, how well made are the Horus Scopes?  Are they rugged and dependable?  What about glass... are they clear, sharp, etc?  Thanks for all of your help guys.

Hi,  when I ordered my Sako TRG in 338 Lap,  I found a guy selling 338 LM components on Ebay.  We conversed back and forth and it seems that he was using two Horus Vision scopes on his rifles, one an AR-30, which he gave away to a buddy.  He shoots the 50 and the 338 on the NRA 1700 yd range in Las Cruces, NM and spoke highly of them on his rifles.  He offered me them but I was thinking in a different direction.  I ended up just bending over and getting the SB PM II for the Sako.

Yu may want to wait until the Xotic scopes come out with the Tubbs reticle. SWFA hinted at about 3 months-- I sure can't wait.

I have never owned a actual Horus scope but have heard that they are not comparable in quality to scopes like the USO, one reputable reviwer compared then to the springfield gen3 contract scopes. I would invest in the USO or wait for Leupold, USO will be your best choice out of the two,S&B bieng the best of the three but expensive.

What bullet/velocity/other variables is the Tubb Reticle set up for?  That seems to be a pretty bullet specific any word on that yet?

No specifics have been posted yet on the Tubb reticle, I am shure Chris will keep us posted as more info is available.

Here is the latest info on the new Xotic.

The new XOTIC will be available with a standard mil-dot as well as two new reticles.  One being the D-Tac reticle designed by David Tubb and the other being a new patented milliradian based reticle developed by SWFA, Inc.

 

We hope to be sending test units to Michael McDonald before the summer for T&E.  The new XOTIC will be worth the wait.  I don't have a lot of details to post but will as soon as I get it.
