I voted, I barely understand MOA as the math is quicker.

But I do have a Horus Vision scope and like the reticle but not the glass.

Other scope manufacturers are starting to put their reticles on their glass.

Opinions on Horus reticles welcome.


When I ordered my ne MK4 M5-A Locking turret Leupy, I almost went with the Horus reticle, I think the concept is sound but it may get cluttered also... $2200 was enough, the H-58 optioned scope is ~$3000. Thats a bit rich for my blood I went with the TMR, I'm happy so far...

    OK, so I voted....MOA, its whats on my rifles now and what I shot for years, funny thing is I learned on a MIL rig. I would not discount it (mil) . Like everything else it takes practice!

    Good luck with either.

    I see Horus optics are fairly high priced but have a limited warranty (1 year), while 99% of the manufacturers have unlimited lifetime replacement. That don't speak well of their commitment to long term reliability.....

    I also see that they employ a steel tube but use an aluminum erector housing. I'm not comfortable with that because dissimilar metals are prone to electrolysis, especially steel and aluminum in contact with one another. Could be why the warranty period is one year..........

    Aluminum 'white rusts' in contact with steel.

    I'd like to see long term reliability on the optic, like 3 years down the road....

    Just an FYI, there are a number of other scope companies that offer horus reticles in their scopes. So you can get the reliability of companies like NF, Bushnell, Leupold, and Premier with a Horus reticle.

    I don't own one but have used one and I believe that once a guy gets used to the reticle it would be a really good system. There are a lot of unique features that make shooting very quick, easy, and intuitive.

    I find it to be opposite since MRAD at f.e. 349 meters is exactly 34.9cm (0.349m) and 0.1MRAD is 3.49cm (0.0349m). Not so easy with MOA.

    LOL, OK!

    I guess it is what you grew up with.
