Thanks to Leica’s innovative projection technology, the illuminated dot in all Magnus i reticles is extremely sharp and brilliant – free of any distracting excess illumination. The sensitive brightness control lets you choose how dim or bright you wish the illumination to be. So you always have an overview – and you can see all the important details even in adverse conditions. All Leica reticle designs have been developed and tested by field sportsmen, are located in the second focal plane and feature an intelligent auto on/off function. Riflescopes from the Magnus series can be ordered with an optional BDC bullet drop compensation system, and a new ballistics programme for BDC is available for download, guaranteeing precise shooting every time.
Reticle L-3D (24)
With a crosshair thickness of 3.2 in/8.0 cm and distance between horizontal posts of 113 in/290 cm, these are the reticles specialised for shots on the fly at moving targets. The fine horizon line ensures the weapon is always orientated correctly, while the centre of the field of sight remains clear, delivering maximum overview and a fast, intuitive direction of the shooter’s sights to the target.
Reticle L-Ballistic (42/50/56)
With a crosshair thickness of 2.0 in/5.0 cm and distance between vertical guidelines of 4.9 in/12.5 cm, these are the reticles for precise shots at longer distances. Line/dot markings enable sighting on the target with the necessary ballistic trajectory correction without the need to change the reticle setting – as long as the distance to the target and the ballistic characteristics of the ammunition used
Reticle L-CD i
CD i is the shortcut for "Circle Dot illuminated". The name describes the main feature of the new driven hunt reticle. Besides the illuminated dot, like on all Magnus reticles, a concentric ring around the centre of the reticle is illuminated as well. This feature will help to aim and shoot precisely on fast moving targets especially under very bright light conditions.
BDC – Bullet drop compensation
The BDC ets you adjust the reticle to various shooting distances. Using the calibrations, the reticle can be set so that the exact impact point is guaranteed on the target. The BDC is easy to use and functions with absolute precision in all weather conditions.
Riflescopes from the Magnus series can be ordered with an optional BDC bullet drop compensation system, and a new ballistics programme for BDC is available for download, guaranteeing precise shooting every time.
With a “direct dial ring”, Leica’s BDC works even more quickly and intuitively. Simply replace the standard engraved ring with a ring featuring range information, and start selecting the precise shooting distance. With 12 different rings to choose from, you can pick the best-fit one for your caliber and load.
Ballistics programme for Leica rapid reticle adjustment (BDC)
The Leica ballistics programme performs calculations for the Geovid HD-B (including download of data), the ballistic reticles of the Leica riflescopes as well as the rapid reticle adjustment (BDC) of the Leica riflescopes.
This allows the calculation of the target range for almost any kind of ammunition, taking into account many parameters relevant for hunting, such as sighting-in distance, the height of the sight line, temperature and height. For Leica riflescopes with ballistic reticle or rapid reticle adjustment (BDC) you can calculate and print tables for distance as well as click value. In addition, you can calculate individual ammunition loads for the programming of the Geovid HD-B and download the data on a microSD-card.
