Pretty cool idea for determining a ruff estimation of range. For someone that takes fairly long shots (500 or 600 yards) it can be beneficial.


Wide Duplex RE Reticle

New! Leupold Wide Duplex® RE Reticle
The Wide Duplex® Range Estimating (RE) reticle was designed to provide a more open center with the pickets farther apart to allow more unobstructed target viewing area. Since this open space is not the right size for range estimating, a new feature is incorporated in VX-III models with the Wide Duplex reticle to provide a range estimating function. A ranging bracket is located on the lower Duplex picket where a thinned down section provides a notch. To estimate range using the Leupold Wide Duplex RE reticle, place an animal or object of approximately 16" in height in the ranging bracket and turn the power selector until it just fits into this space. After the target is bracketed in this notch, read the numbers on the rear of the power selector ring to get an estimate of the range. “3” corresponds with 300 yards, “5” with 500 yards, etc. The range estimator is available in the following VX-III Wide Duplex models:
1.75-6x32mm, 2.5-8x36mm, 3.5-10x40mm, 3.5-10x50mm, 4.5-14x40mm, 4.5-14x50mm.
