I've heard that Horus reticles are very good once you know how to use them, but many people recommend to stay away from their scopes. No personal experience though.
While I don't have any hearsay evidence
, I do own three scopes with Horus H-25s in them. Two USOs and a Horus. All are of course first focal plain scopes.
During my recent experience in Oregon, I needed to do some recalculation in the field as I changed loads.
Leaving home I had calibrated the rifle for the 39 grain Berger in .204 at 70 yards. Well, at the rate we were using ammo, I was soon out of these.
Back to the 32 grain Hornady, I had an oppportunity to sight in again at 50 yards. 2 rounds to establish POI, read displacement to 0,0 with MOA scale in reticle, adjust knobs, and two more rounds to verify new zero.
Then the ATRAG2 software on my palm gave me the tradjectory in the range card. Turns out that the bullet soon rises above the line of sight and crosses it a little after 300 yards, to about 1 mil above the line of sight. So out to 300 yards or so, the sight picture looked like this:
Then I had a much easier time hitting the little buggers. This is the kind of thing that has me impressed with the Horus system in the SN-3.
