8-26x50 SMOA Non-Illuminated Varmint Scope
Varmints are tiny, fast, and easy to spook. There's no way of sneaking up on them so you have to shoot from a distance and be quick. By the time you've clicked up on conventional scopes, the varmint's gone. If you take the shot and miss, varmints run into their holes and you lose your chance. The Predator™ scope makes every shot count. High magnification lets you engage smaller targets. This reticle has ultra-thin lines in a shooters minute of angle (SMOA*) grid that won't obscure small targets. Like all Horus reticles, the grid design eliminates clicks for incredibly fast aiming. Be faster, be on target.

Reticle: H70
A reticle for daylight varmint hunters who are used to measuring in inches and yards, the H70 grid is calibrated in the shooters minute of angle (SMOA*), which subtends to one inch at exactly 100 yards. It features thin lines for aiming at varmint-size targets. View full reticle specs below.

*One shooters minute of angle (SMOA) covers or subtends exactly one inch at exactly 100 yards.
