    Hi all, has anyone used these new scopes from primary arms, any thoughts on the r-grid reticle? Looking at one of these for a mid range (650yds) AR and at just under $280, it's very tempting 16b3c8f6a1f5cbb89d0c6298c4448944.jpg

    Seems like a lot of extra fluff to clutter up your field of view.

    Yes, but very useful for longer ranges if used properly. Plus it's a ffp reticle so if you really needed more field of view I suppose you could turn the power down a bit.

    I'm debating on getting that scope for my AR10.

    I've used the ACSS (non R-grid) to good effect on a 5.56 AR and a .300BLK. They make ranging and engaging steel out to about 500yds really easy. Not super precise, but minute of torso (or coyote) is pretty easy.

    I'm thinking about an R-grid for a .308 AR I'm building. It should be more precise than the straight ACSS reticle.

    I had it on my Wilson Combat AR and I loved it

    Old thread, but I thought I should update.

    I went ahead and bought the scope.before mounting, I let it sit in the freezer for 2½ hours then straight into the sink full of room-temp water where it stayed for 3 mins.
    As expected, everything checked out.

    I mounted it to my RRA 16" which can shoot just under ½ inch with handloads at 100yds. Using a chronograph and the app STRELOK, I was able to pop balloons at 350yds, 400, 490, and even 500yds within the first few shots using the reticle only.

    I hesitate to use the word easy, as I had about 25" of windage at the longest distance and was by no means consistent.

    Where this scope really shined was the ability to call your own shot in the reticle from the bullet splash and make corrections as needed.

    I never had a first round hit but was able to measure my impact and make corrections as needed which lead to a hit in the next couple shots.

    I am by no means an experienced shooter, not even close. In fact this was my first time actually hitting my target at the distances listed.

    I would strongly recommend this scope to anyone looking to shoot mid-longe range but is reletivley inexperienced in longer range shooting.

    I would also like to note something I forgot earlier, the paralax on this scope is spot on and using the mil incriment part of the reticle allowed me to to range the farthest balloon where my rangefinder would not.

    The reticle can be used to measure as accurate as 0.05 mil increments.

    Hope this helps anyone who is thinking about adding one of these scopes to their collection.
