Leupold's Tactical Optics Division has introduced a new reticle that combines the ranging ability of the Special Purpose Reticle with the quick acquisition of the Circle Dot Reticle.
The CM-R2 allows tactical and competitive shooters the ability to quickly and accurately estimate range and engage targets, according to the company. The new model also utilizes the instinctive fire capabilities of the Circle Dot for short-range, low magnification needs.
"The CM-R2 reticle makes our battlefield-proven Mark 4 MR/T and CQ/T line of riflescopes even more versatile," according to Kevin Trepa, Leupold's vice president of tactical sales and marketing.
The new reticle features an illuminated 0.5 MOA dot surrounded by a 5.0 MOA semi-circle to enhance the shooter's focus and combine precision with speed, as well as calibrated hash marks on the horizontal stadia for leading moving targets at 5, 10 and 15 mph.
Vertical tic marks allow users to estimate ranges based on 18-inch wide targets at increasing ranges, while also providing precise holdover points for targets between 300 and 900 meters, according to the Leupold.
Riflescopes with Leupold's CM-R2 reticle should be zeroed at 200 yards using M855 5.56mm NATO/.223 Remington ammunition, producing a muzzle velocity of 2,810 fps with 62-grain, Full Metal Jacket (FMJ) bullets, according to the company.
The CM-R2 is available in Leupold Mid Range/Tactical (MR/T) and Close Quarters/Tactical (CQ/T) riflescopes.
