The Safariland Rapid Reticle 800 3-9x 42mm Rifle Scope RR-800-1 features the incredible Rapid Reticle aiming system. The reticle has clearly numbered elevation cross hairs, dots, and wind lines from point blank to 800 yards (or meters) depending on where the zero is set. It is calibrated for the most popular factory .308 Winchester (7.62 NATO) match loads. These loads use the 168 grain or 175 grain match bullets at velocities of approximately 2600-2700 feet per second.
To use the Rapid Reticle RR-800-1, merely range the target then estimate the wind. Select the corresponding clearly marked aiming line, put it on the target and squeeze the trigger. The system is extremely accurate, quick to use and easy to understand. The Rapid Reticle 800 by Safariland works best when used with bullets that have ballistic coefficients of from .450 to .540 at velocities of between 2600 fps to 2700 fps depending on the caliber, B.C, and velocity. Any caliber, cartridge combination which falls into these B.C. and velocity guidelines will work. Because of the trajectory this specific reticle is built for, this riflescope will also work well with popular .223 Remington loads in 55, 62, 77 grain, and those in between, when zeroed properly. Lastly, these Safariland riflescopes are rugged and offer an impressive performance.
