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.
