Meet the HORUS Series Reticles

Enter the HORUS Grid:  A Comparative Analysis of Horus Vision’s H59 and H59-MOA Reticles

In the realm of precision shooting and long-range marksmanship, the choice of reticle can significantly impact accuracy, speed, and overall performance. Horus Vision, known for its innovative approach to reticles and optics, offers two distinct variants of its popular H59 reticle: the standard H59 and the H59-MOA. Understanding the differences between these two reticles allows shooters looking to optimize their shooting experience based on their specific needs and preferences.

Introducing Horus Vision’s H59 Reticles

Horus Vision’s H59 reticles are renowned for their advanced design features tailored to meet the demands of precision shooters across various disciplines. Both the H59 and H59-MOA incorporate sophisticated HORUS Grid patterns with precise aiming points that assist shooters in making quick and accurate adjustments for elevation, windage, and target distance. The H59-MOA can be found in the Horus HoVR™ 5-20x50mm Riflescope and the legendary H59 in many other leading optical manufacturers’ scopes as well. 

H59 Reticle Overview

Design and Features:

  • The H59 reticle features a comprehensive 0.2 milliradian grid-style pattern that aids in precise holdovers and windage adjustments.
  • Designed for versatility, the H59 excels in various shooting scenarios, from competitive shooting to tactical applications.
  • Rapid Range Bars to quickly acquire ranges of targets of known size. 
  • Built in speed shooting formula for fast target engagement. 
  • Moving target holds intended to indicate leads for targets moving up to 10 mph.


  • Suitable for shooters who prefer using MIL (milliradian) measurements for their adjustments.
  • Ideal for environments where MIL-based calculations are standard practice, such as in tactical, military and law enforcement contexts.


  • Provides clear aiming points for elevation and windage corrections.
  • Enhances target acquisition and engagement speed through its intuitive design.
  • Offers consistency and reliability in challenging shooting conditions.

H59-MOA Reticle Overview

Design and Features:

  • The H59-MOA reticle maintains the grid-like structure but is calibrated in MOA (Minute of Angle) instead of MIL.
  • It features hash marks and dots spaced according to MOA increments, catering specifically to shooters accustomed to MOA measurements.
  • Rapid Range Bars for quickly estimating range to targets of known size.


  • Preferred by shooters who are more comfortable with MOA adjustments and calculations.
  • Well-suited for environments where MOA-based scopes and ballistic calculations are prevalent, such as in certain hunting and competitive shooting disciplines.


  • Simplifies adjustment calculations for shooters familiar with MOA.
  • Provides precise aiming points for elevation and windage adjustments in MOA increments.
  • Offers compatibility with scopes and ballistic software designed for MOA measurements.

Key Differences Between H59 and H59-MOA

1. Measurement Units:

  •    H59:Uses MIL for its grid and adjustment increments.
  •    H59-MOA: Uses MOA for its grid and adjustment increments.

2. User Preference:

  •   H59: Appeals to shooters who prefer MIL measurements or use MIL-based scopes.
  •   H59-MOA: Appeals to shooters who prefer MOA measurements or use MOA-based scopes.

3. Application Specificity:

  •   H59: Commonly found in tactical and precision shooting environments where MIL measurements are standard.
  •   H59-MOA: Often used in hunting and competitive shooting scenarios where MOA measurements are more prevalent.


Choosing between the Horus Vision H59 and H59-MOA reticles ultimately comes down to personal preference and the specific shooting context. Whether you prefer MIL or MOA measurements, both reticles offer sophisticated features designed to enhance accuracy and performance at extended ranges. By understanding their unique attributes and applications, shooters can confidently select the reticle that best aligns with their shooting style and operational requirements.

TREMOR3™: Precision Redefined

The TREMOR3™ reticle is a testament to precision engineering. Designed to meet the demands of long-range shooters, it offers a comprehensive set of features tailored to maximize accuracy in various shooting scenarios. At its core, the TREMOR3™ boasts a finely tuned grid system that enables precise holdovers, windage corrections, and range estimation.


One of the standout features of the TREMOR3™ is its intuitive layout, which facilitates quick target acquisition and engagement. The reticle’s Christmas tree-style design provides shooters with multiple precise aiming points for different distances, making it ideal for dynamic shooting environments where targets may appear at varying ranges.


Furthermore, the TREMOR3™ incorporates wind dots along the horizontal stadias, allowing shooters to compensate for wind quickly without needing to reference a ballistics calculator. This feature proves invaluable, particularly in windy conditions where windage adjustments are crucial for hitting targets with utmost accuracy. To add, the TREMOR3™ is also the reticle of choice for USSOCOM*.

TREMOR4™: Elevating Spotting to New Heights

Building upon the success of its companion reticles, the TREMOR4™ takes precision shooting to new heights with its advanced features and enhanced capabilities for spotting. 


Designed to work with any milliradian based reticle, the TREMOR4™ contains time of flight wind dots and milling chevrons to effectively mill target height and width in the field. The reticle features finer subtensions and additional holdover points, allowing shooters to make more precise adjustments for elevation and windage.

TREMOR5™: The Apex of Long-Range Shooting Excellence

As a simplified addition to the TREMOR series, the TREMOR5™ sets a new standard for long-range shooting excellence. Engineered with the most demanding shooters in mind, this reticle combines cutting-edge technology with meticulous craftsmanship to deliver unparalleled performance on the range and in competition settings alike.
