BEAVERTON, Ore. - Leupold‘s® Tactical Optics Division introduces the CM-R2™ reticle, which allows tactical and competitive shooters to quickly and accurately estimate range and engage targets.
By combining the ranging ability of Leupold’s Special Purpose Reticle (SPR®) with the quick acquisition of the Leupold Circle Dot reticle, the CM-R2 provides the flexibility necessary on the modern battlefield or 3-gun course. The CM-R2 preserves the instinctive fire capabilities of the Circle Dot for the short-range, low magnification needs of the 3-gun competitor or CQB warfighter.
The CM-R2 is designed to allow the shooter to focus more attention on the target and less attention on the reticle. A boldly illuminated 0.5 MOA dot surrounded by a 5.0 MOA semi-circle enhance the shooter’s focus and combine precision with speed when the target is up close and personal. Hash marks on the horizontal stadia are calibrated for leading moving targets at 5, 10 and 15 mph, respectively. Vertical tic marks allow users to estimate ranges based on 18″ wide targets at increasing ranges, while also providing precise holdover points for targets between 300 and 900 meters.
“The CM-R2 reticle makes our battlefield-proven Mark 4 MR/T® and CQ/T® line of riflescopes even more versatile,” said Kevin Trepa, Leupold’s vice president of tactical sales and marketing. “American warfighters and civilian shooting enthusiasts alike will enjoy the fast-ranging capabilities of this reticle.”
For optimum results, riflescopes with the 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 FMJ bullets.
The CM-R2 is available in Leupold Mid Range/Tactical (MR/T) and Close Quarters/Tactical (CQ/T) riflescopes. Leupold has offered precision optics for tactical applications since the 1983 introduction of Ultra riflescopes, which were designed to excel under the most extreme battlefield conditions. Today, more long-range Leupold Tactical Optics are in service with the U.S. military than any other brand.
