How to Use TREMOR Reticle Wind Dots

Patented Time of Flights Wind Dots provide accurate wind holds in wind speed values (mph, kph, m/s, etc.) to allow for quick and easy holds without  a ballistic solver or counting numerous subtensions. These can be calibrated for any ballistics and density altitude providing a universal solution. 

The easiest method to calibrate wind dots for your ballistics and current atmospherics is using the FREE Horus Ballistics App or our online Wind Dot Calculator.

To manually calibrate using a ballistic calculator:
• Use the 4th mil line and 2nd wind dot along it, to calibrate the reticle
to your specific ballistics.
• Turn off spin drift in your ballistic engine, manipulate target range
until 4 mils is your elevation solution.
• Using this elevation solution, manipulate the full wind value until your
windage solution is as close to 0.95 mil (sub-tension of 2nd wind dot
on 4th mil line) as possible. This is the 2nd wind dot value.
• Divide the 2nd wind dot value by two, use this new wind value for all ToF wind dots.

620 yds = 4 Mil elevation hold
0.95 mil wind hold = 8 mph wind value (2nd dot, 4th mil line)
8 ÷ 2 = 4 mph wind dot value


The Horus TREMOR3, TREMOR4, and TREMOR5 reticles all have wind dots. You can find a list of brands offering Horus reticles HERE.

Australian Defense Force Chooses TREMOR3 Reticles

The patented Horus TREMOR3 reticle is selected yet again, this time by elite snipers in the Australian Defence Force.  As chosen by USSOCOM, the US Secret Service, FBI, and over 30 allied militaries, the TREMOR reticle has become the standard for elite marksmen. 

The TREMOR3 will be installed in a NightForce Optics MIL-SPEC ATACR 7-35x56F1 scope which has quickly become the apex of day view optics for long range and precision marksmanship. 

Force Ordnance Business Development Manager, Paul Mason, served as a sniper in the ADF for 17 years, 12 of which with the Special Air Service Regiment, and believes the ATACR 7-35x56mm F1 is a ‘game-changer’ for ADF snipers.

“The obvious benefit is the magnification improvement which takes ADF scope capability from 3-12 to 7-35 power, which in practical terms means that snipers can accurately identify targets at 1200m, which is double the currently capability,” Mason said.

“Currently, a sniper would have to use an independent spotting scope to accurately identify targets beyond 600 metres whereas now that capability is built into the scope.”

For Mason, of perhaps equal advantage is the addition of the TREMOR3TM reticle to the system, which he says allows snipers to accurately range targets. Built by Horus Vision Reticle Technologies, a Lightforce Group company, the TREMOR3TM reticle reportedly gives users the capability to quickly estimate the range to targets while also giving the user wind speed and drop correction information for fast and accurate second shot corrections.

“The TREMOR3TM reticle is used by USSOCOM and US Navy SEALS and is a preferred choice of multiple Precision Rifle Series (PRS) Champions,” Mason said.

Sniper Competition Winners Use TREMOR3 and TREMOR4 Reticles

The 2022 United States Army Special Operations Command’s International Sniper Competition winners have been announced. The winning team used a NightForce ATACR 7-35x riflescope with the patented Horus TREMOR3 reticle and the Horus HoVR 6.5-40x spotting scope with the TREMOR4 reticle. 


Coming in first place was, unsurprisingly, a sniper team from USASOC. But rounding out the remaining spots in the top five were a diverse set of teams, coming from France, 20th Special Forces Group, U.S. Marine Corps Special Operations Command, and Germany.


The week-long competition includes completing different tasks that test the surgical skills sniper teams need to hone in every aspect of their craft, according to Col. Matthew Tucker, commander of the 2nd Special Warfare Training Group.

Simplifying Long Range – HoVR Complete Shooters Package

That was just a cold bore shot at 1,000 yards with a caliber and rifle that I have never shot a thousand yards with before. I did it with the help of the Horus HoVR system. You are going to say it was fake or stages, but I have no reason to lie about it. I am not being paid by Horus and I don’t get a dime if you decide to buy this system or not

Understanding Rifle Scope Reticles

When it comes to buying a rifle scope it’s critical to understand your reticle options and select the best one for your use case. In this article from Shooting Illustrated they provide an overview of modern reticles to help you determine which reticle is right for you. 

Horus Vision’s old workhorse H25 was an effective, basic reticle. But, its later designs, such as the trimmed-down H27 and my personal favorite, the H59, have far greater utility. The TREMOR series of reticles, such as the TREMOR3 in current use by USSOCOM, are extremely popular in both military and long-range competitive circles.”
