Hi I ordered a SH4 6-24x50 gen 2 in MOA. Does it have a MOA or MRAD reticle ? Thanks
All of the Arken Optics scopes have matching turrets to reticles.
If it states MOA in the description it has MOA reticle. You can check this on a 100 yard range with a target and a ruler with a sharpie draw a vertical line 12in long. at the bottom put a horizontal line 1 in long, then come up and put another line at 2, 4, 8, and 12 inches. With a zeroed rifle ( from prone or a bench) shoot the bottom intersection. Then increase the elevation 2 moa or 8 clicks, aim at the bottom cross and fire a shot this should hit very close to the 2 inch cross point. Keep doing this until you get to the 12in line 4moa on the scope should hit the 4 inch line on the target as long as you keep aiming at the same bottom line. this will test the scope adjustment. If you have mills the impacts from 2 mil adjustment will be aprox 7 inches high instead of 2 inches high. to test to see if the reticle is moa or mils Use the same target and instead of dialing the turrets use hole over. Most Moa Scope have a short line at 2 moa and a slightly longer line at 4moa. So use hold over to hit each line intersection up to 12 inches.
At the 4 min line on the scope the impact will be 4inch up. If it is mil based 1 mil is 3.6" roughly
and 4 mils is 14.4"
Remember when you finish return the scope to Zero, this is the biggest mistaKe i see on the range.
shouldn’t you have known that when you ordered?
It does not matter to me either way but it did not stat on the web site if it has mrad or moa. Unless I did not see it.
When you select your optic, there is a section to select the specific unit of measure.
