Understanding the Primary Arms ACSS reticle (VIDEO)

Dimitri Mikroulis over at Primary Arms has developed a non-mil, non-MOA reticle that “just works.” Taking advantage of average target sizes and going from there, the ACSS reticle for AR-15 and other mostly 5.56/.223 rifles is zeroed at 100 yards and has holdovers out to 800 yards.

Included with the reticle is a scale to quickly estimate how far away your target is. It’s an interesting and more importantly simple concept that makes shooting at longer ranges easy for non-long-rage shooters.

Primary Arms is so confident with the straight-forward design that they’re rolling out the ACSS reticle on most of their magnified optics, including the following:

  • PA 2.5x Compact AR15 Prismatic Scopeprimary arms 2.5x prismatic scope
  • PA 4x Compact AR15 Prismatic Scope
  • PA 6x Riflescope
  • PA 1-6x Riflescope
  • PA 1-6x 7.62X39-300AAC Riflescope, and
  • PA 4-14X44 FFP .308 Riflescope

Some of these are available now with the rest following later this year. What’s greatest about these optics is that they all run around $250 give or take. If you’re building a rifle on a tight budget but still want glass that can take you out there then don’t hesitate to put Primary Arms on your short list.
