Sneak Peek - Schmidt Bender LRR-Mil Reticle **Updates 7/9/2018 - Reticle Images!**

Update 7/9/2018 - reticle images!


Scheduled for release in the May/June 2017 timeframe, Schmidt Bender's new LRR-Mil milliradian-based intelligent reticle will be out very soon - and we're all pretty excited to be spearheading the distribution of this new technology. Designed with the Tactical Precision Shooter in mind, the LRR-Mil was designed with feedback and consultation from proven operators from multiple countries to be a major evolution in reticles with aiming and ranging capabilities. Uncluttered, easy to reference, and a step up from current reticle technology.

The LRR-Mil reticle will be offered in the four following Schmidt Bender PM II models:

Schmidt Bender LRR-Mil Reticle


1. Main Reticle

The main reticle component of the LRR-Mil contains 0.1, 0.2, and 0.5 milliradian references throughout the entire structure of the reticle. It is illuminated, with the center dot and interrupted center cross portions being subject to the red illumination. The center dot is ultra-fine, covering only 0.16 cm at 100 meters.

The horizontal reticle lines in the 3 o'clock and 9 o'clock positions are thick, bold, conical line segments for fast center acquisition; they also feature reference marks at different intervals.

The 6 o'clock reference line is fully referenced on a 0.5 mil basis, and referenced in 0.1 and 0.2 mils out to the 2.0 mil mark; the 12 o'clock reference line extends upward from the center dot for 3.0 milliradians of reference.

2. Power Identification Indicator

The LRR-Mil features power identification markings in the lower right-hand quadrant of the reticle. This interesting and unique addition to the reticle allows the operator to instantly reference the current magnification setting of the scope without the need to pull away from the riflescope. The magnification setting is reference by comparing the number closest to the edge of the field of view of the scope.

3. Meter/Half-Meter Ranging Scale

In the lower left-hand quadrant of the LRR-Mil reticle, a 200 to 1,500 meter and half-meter ranging scale is featured. This ranging scale also features a short usage note right in the reticle to eliminate confusion.

LRR-Mil Meter/Half-Meter Ranging Scale

In this scale, the operator simply lines the target up with the top vertical line (for 1-meter targets) or the middle horizontal line (for half-meter targets), and judges to which horizontal numbered line (1-meter targets) or end of numbered line (1/2 half-meter targets) to which the target extends to find the estimated range of the target. Again, simple, clean and efficient. And I'm sure I'm not the only one who appreciates the usage instructions right in the reticle...

4. Fine Graduated Ranging/Estimating Box

The horizontal lines of the LRR-Mil feature a Fine Graduated Ranging and Estimation box that begins at the 4.0 Mil mark and extending to the 5.0 Mil mark, on both sides. This section of the reticle has 0.1 and 0.2 milliradian reference marks for ranging very small or very distant targets.

As you can see, the Schmidt Bender LRR-Mil reticle is a pretty exciting new development. For additional reference material and some other new Schmidt Bender announcements, check out the Schmidt Bender New for 2017 document.

    Imho, both the ranging scale an the magnification scales should be above the center line in the reticule. When just using hold overs looks  to me both will be obstructing the use of the lower portion of the scope reticule. Also I would prefer just 1 red line segment around the center dot but I could live with the center as its shown. Everything else is great!!!

    I'm baffled as to the half meter range finding feature.  Does it mean you'll have to rotate the rifle 90 degrees to range half meter targets??

    Bob, I believe it is for ranging targets where you can estimate the width of the target more accurately than you can the height of the target.

    Or, you could rotate the rifle, if you wanted. ;)

      Jonah, DOH!  Yes that makes sense of course.  Guess I'll have to  keep looking to find a reticle suitable for hunting hobbits Smile

    No 1/10th mil hash marks left and right of center for quick wind holds. Geeeee!!!!

    Agree with poster above, the magnification markings and the ranging scale should both  be above the horizontal cross bar. Dont obscure any portion of the lower half of view, needs to be clear for hold overs if the shooter chooses not to dial in his DOPE.

    I do not understand why anybody would like to range estimate with a reticle. Just laser the goddamn thing. If you for cannot and still want to estimate then you do not need this weird thing in the bottom left corner.   Just measure with vertical or horizontal lines. They already have all means to do the job. Why to spoil otherwise nice reticle with it? Beats me.

      many of the USA enemy's have laser detection equipment    so if you laser range you give up you position and advantage of the enemy even knowing your in the area
